Dear subscribers,

This posting (copied below) was approved for distribution, but I would like to point out that the moderators should have asked Ms. Cusick for a revision and resubmission. We apologize that we did not do this.

The posting had two problems that could have been corrected:

(1) Biomch-L allows announcements for product-related workshops, but these should be written such that they do not contain advertising for the product Just the facts: time, location, program, contact information. Avoid words like "safe and effective", slogans, and exclamation marks.

(2) If you have a financial interest in a product mentioned in your posting, this needs to be disclosed in the posting. In this case, it would have been important to disclose that Ms. Cusick designed and developed this product (according to http://www.theratogs.com/descriptions.html).

While we were asking for a resubmission, we also would have asked for a more descriptive subject line.

Please help the Biomch-L moderators by following these guidelines. We can't spend too much time reviewing and policing postings, we also have our own research to do.

If you need advice on whether a posting is acceptable, contact us at Biomch-L-Request@nic.surfnet.nl, or just submit the posting with full disclosure such that we can make informed decisions.
