I'm in trouble

Hi all,

In response to the proposal of Roger below;

I am an amateur and I am quite happy with ALL the content I get on LEPS-L.
When I had a problem earlier this year having to raise at once about 100
Smerinthus ocellatus larvae, I asked for help on this list. The best answer
I got was the one where the owner of the other mailing list (majordomo, for
livestock) guided me on to that list. Over there I got all the help I
needed, one of the persons answering my call being Barrie. Thanks for that.
Since then, I regularly got the messages they sent, being an average of
about 3 a day. Since a couple of weeks however, the messages stopped, save
for some excuses of the listowner because the listserver didn't work
I, and I do not think I'm the only one, get a lot of spam, most of it via
this list. I usually exceeds what I used to get on messages from the other
guys. I do delete most of the livestock messages, but do not regard them as
spam. And some day I may (very probably will) need help again.
For the scientific part: I like most of the conversations here, a day cou
cannot learn something is a wasted day. So please John Grehan and Rikki Hall
And again, please, all be reasonable and keep it as it is.
