Due to the heavy discussion after closing the "moderation" of the
mailing list we have collected some helpfull and constructive
suggestions, especially the contributions of Martin Pohl (Uni Ulm) and
Jens Schmidt (TU Dresden) - many thanks for their collaboration.
This mailing list is a "non moderated" mailing list since July
13th 1999, i.e. all emails will be forwarded to all subscribers without
any interference or control. Thus it does not make any sense to post
inquiries or complaints to the list, the subscribers expecting job
offerings will only be bothered.
In the same direction you do not need any cover letter for a job
offering. At the best you use our WWW-form for posting open
Inquiries should be addressed to the people
responsible for the service as indicated on the
We ask all subscribers of Science-Jobs-De to simply ignore
irrelevant emails, otherwise we will end up in a situation where
we have more discussions than job offerings on the list.
To classify an email as "irrelevant" and to delete it costs
about 5 seconds of time, and we believe that this is acceptable.
Last but not least it is absolutely unnecessary to personaly
attack or offend someone on the mailing list. Nobody intends to make
errors but everybody has the right to make a mistake. If you want
to post a personal comment you can use the personal email address
of the sender. Do not send personal comments to
the list - this is an act of courtesy.
You can join or leave the list using either the recommended WWW-form
or via email. On the corresponding WWW-pages we have put some help
information on how to leave the list. This text can also be send by
members of the Science-Jobs-De service to people who may have
made a mistake when leaving the list.
