A message to all members of the SWCS Network:
As the SWCS Network has grown, it has become more difficult to keep out the spammers that contaminate the site. To combat this problem, we have moved the "Privacy Settings" on the network to "Public, but with moderator approval to join" ... so anyone can still join in the conservation conversation. If you are still finding spammers on the network, please bring these instances to our attention by forwarding the messages to us at [pubs a t swcs d o t org].
Thanks so much for all your contributions to the Network, the Society, and to the profession.
