A recent unpleasant posting prompts this important reminder to our members.
Our SIG mailing list is not the appropriate place for airing critical
remarks about our policies, moderators, members or other individuals. Should
anyone want to vent any complaints or objections of this sort (& we
certainly hope that this won't be the case <g>), please direct such
"observations" to our support department at <email@example.com> where
they can be addressed personally & privately.
Another matter has also been brought to our attention. Several of our
members have asked about unsolicited email that has been sent to them by
people offering paid research assistance in the former Soviet Union. Beware
of such offers, & just in case you're inclined to follow up on them, make
sure that you do a THOROUGH job of checking out their credentials!! We'd
prefer not to see any of you get "burned". You might even want to pass the
message through our Research VP, Joyce Field at firstname.lastname@example.org & see
if she knows anything about the sender.
A Chag Sameach to all of you,
Ukraine SIG Coordinator
