If a Histonet newsletter is put together, messages taken from the email
should NOT BE EDITED (with possible exception of spelling or clarification
of abbreviations).  If the text of the message is unclear, you must contact
the author to make any text changes.  Authors should also be acknowledged.

As Editor of the  bulletin for NSH Veterinary, Industry and Research
committee, I was told NOT TO CHANGE email messages and there may be some
legality here, but am totally clear on it.  Spent a lot of time contacting
authors of those messages in order to avoid stepping on toes!!!!

As for my messages, I would not permit editing unless I did the changes
myself and I, for one, want to do my own editing to avoid misinterpretation
of the message.  I also think you should ask permission to reprint messages
in newletter form,  some authors do not want their comments published.  If
the proper channels in setting up and putting together a newsletter were
not taken, I would probably leave Histonet permanently.

Case in point, Phil Oshel always asks to use the material, and then works
with the author to make sure it is up to snuff.  Nice guy!!! and patient too!

25 cents worth that leads to money/other questions, is the newsletter going
to be electronic mailing via file attachment???  per request only???  There
are some who cannot receive file attachments at their institutions, or is
there going to be some way to fund a mailing???  I may have missed any
comments on this in the last few days, been off H'net.
