What is a list server? A list server is like on open conversation that travels through e-mail. One person e-mails a question to a specific email address and it is sent to all on the list. As people respond to the questions and statements they are e-mailed back to all on the list. This is a good way to get questions answered and to learn about biological control.

Rules & Suggestions
Replying to any e-mail sent
from the list and asking to unsubscribe will not unsubscribe you from the list.
You must follow the instructions as listed above to unsubscribe. Replying to a
message from the list sends a message to the entire list. So please be sure that
is what you want to do. If you want to send a message to only one or two other
people, then do not use reply but start a new message with their e-mail
If you do wish to send a
message to the entire list, then please practice good e-mail protocol and edit
the message you are replying to so that just enough information is left to
understand your reply. Nothing is worse then finding your mailbox crammed with
one long message that contains numerous other replies and useless routing
information. Plus, one of the worse mistakes subscribers make on a list server
is to copy the entire message back to the list or to the message originator with

This is a Private, but
Non-moderated list, in that any messages sent to the list by a subscriber will
be relayed to all subscribers on the list. This allows free discussion of
Biological Control in ornamentals by all subscribers.
If, at some time in the
future, list subscribers begin to receive messages posted by persons not
really interested in biological control or IPM, then the list might be changed to a
semi-moderated status. In that case, the list owner (see below) will automatically
receive all messages before they are posted to the list. He will then decide to
delete the message, approve the message, or ignore it, in which case it will
automatically be posted to the list after a certain time period. Hopefully, it
won't come to that.
