List members, the FISH-SCI list is not moderated, and any subscriber can 
post to the list. Messages which are not from known subscriber addresses are 
bounced to the list owners for approval. Most of these are spam, some are 
legitimate conference announcements from institutional addresses, but more 
and more of the bounces are from subscribers whose addresses are not 
recognisable. This usually happens because the messages they receive are 
forwarded from an old address -- for example, I may subscribe as 
[log in to unmask] and the university changes my address to 
[log in to unmask], or a subscriber moves to a new institution and has 
mail forwarded.

If your address has changed, please subscribe at the new address and have 
the old address removed (we can do this for you if you cannot send mail from 
the old address). This makes life easier for us and speeds up your posts.

If your messages do get bounced to us we cannot guarantee that we will spot 
and approve them. Almost all the bounces are spam and we delete them with a 
heavy fist (or three heavy fists to be precise).

About language: in the past we have been asked whether all posts need to be 
in English, and our position has been that since this is an international 
list we do not prohibit posts in other languages, so long as they are really 
international in scope. We have for example accepted posts in Spanish. 
However we are receiving a large number of inappropriate submissions in 
Spanish, so if you post in Spanish and it comes to us for approval, it will 
almost certainly be rejected unread even though it may be entirely 
legitimate. Sorry, somos solamente humanos.
