Just A Thought
I am a fairly new user of the histonet and for the most part find in
very informative and often entertaining. However, I'm already
finding in the short time I've subscribed a lot of redundancy of
questions. I think (and this is only my opinion) this might be
because of the lack of using the subject line to identify the subject
being addressed. For example, if at some future date, I were to
wonder about labeling samples, and remember it was covered at length
on histonet, I'm unlikely to remember to put "me again" in the search
subject! And for reference books (a subject that by the way was
covered very recently with several recommendations), I'm extremely
unlikely to try "two questions" for my search subject. And in the
event that research & biotech come to a screeching halt and I have to
start selling (or manufacturing) moonshine to pay the bills, well,
maybe I'd search under lead.
The moonshine example actually falls under the entertaining portion I
guess, as well as interesting facts to toss around. And I'm getting
a regular chuckle from the various pathology req's (subject line "me
again") that have been coming through. Our email program (Eudora)
puts chile peppers on email that may contain something offensive and
lately the histonet "me again" email that have 3 chile peppers (the
hottest rating) have given me a good laugh.
Thank you to all of you experts out there who so willingly share your
knowledge and expertise. I've gotten a lot of useful information to
use as I get going on histology and IHC. I have my own "Histonet
Archives" that I've started of subjects I think I'm likely to find
useful in the near future.
Here's hoping my email doesn't cause a backlash of attacks asking to
have me removed from the list!
P.S. don't even get me started on the subscribe/unsubscribe topic.
ie responding to an email with subject line a pertinent topic and
then typing "unsubscribe" in the body of the email, and then getting
mad because they haven't been removed from the list!
