Group Description

This mailing group is set up solely for Q & A purposes or to get in contact with other bat researchers/groups from other countries. For example you wish to find out more about suitable equipment for research, a reference on a subject or a contact person for bats in another country e-mail the group with the request. However it must be straight to the point, and only ever a request for information, statements like how crap the movie “Bats” was or an online discussion on the zapping of fruit bats in Australia is not allowed. For things like that sign up to batline or find a chat room. Also when replying to a request don’t reply to the whole mailing list, insure that before you hit send you are only e-mailing the person making the request. So it is requests only except for the following exceptions; you can e-mail this group to start a group to stop the zapping of bats or advertise jobs/student ships but nothing else.

This group was started because many researchers like myself dropped batline due to the spam factor. If a person is spamming this group they will be kicked off after two warnings. Also the normal stuff such as no offensive text applies, if it happens the offender WILL find themselves removed straight away. This site is not a competitor for bat line it is meant for those who want to do research or conservation but not get their mail boxes filled up with unrelated crap. A lot of important and useful people are out of the loop because of it and I wish to get them back. New people getting into the field are encouraged to sign up to batline as well as that may to be to your taste.
