Dear Bill

The bionet.crystallography electronic newsgroup is a useful electronic resource for biological crystallography, providing a forum for general discussion, and a place to post notices such as job advertisements or synchrotron beamline availability. However, in the past year this resource has become a disgraceful collection of spam. To rectify the situation, I have agreed to become moderator of the newsgroup, which means that spam is deleted by me rather than posted to the group. This relatively minor (but satisfying!) task will be made more rewarding if the intended audience – the crystallographic community – makes more active use of the newsgroup again. To subscribe (i.e., receive posts by e-mail) or to browse recent messages, see To post messages, send e-mail to or
