Dear subscribers,

I have offered Dr. Gideon Ariel an opportunity to explain how the
unfortunate posting occurred last week. His message is appended
below.

-- Ton van den Bogert, Biomch-L co-moderator

================================================== =========================

Dear Biomch-L:
I sincerely apologize for the last incident of posting a message which
bears commercial overtones. I take full responsibility for this posting
error. The following events led to this serious occurrence.
1. A message was sent to my E-mail provider from over seas and was posted
in my E-Mail address box.
2. Usually, I retrieve the messages.
3. Since I was traveling, the message was picked by one of my associates
(by mistake).
4. My normal carrier, Netcom, was unavailable at the place where I was
traveling.
5. My associate tried to forward the message, so I would be able to pick it
up on CompuServe.
6. The accident occurred because there was an assumption that I could pick
up the message from the Biomch-L list with CompuServe.
7. No one meant to post this message to the whole list.
8. I did not sent the message and received the message only after the
Biomch_l List received it.

Regardless, it was my responsibility to make sure that such an event did not
occur and therefore I am totally responsible for this incident. I sincerely
apologize for this unfortunate occurrence and will exercise extra effort to
make sure that this kind of thing does not happened again.

Gideon Ariel, Ph.D.
