- This group is now a Restricted group, that is, I am now going to
approve all requests to join. Anyone who leaves and then wants to
return or anyone who wants to join in the future will now have to
leave a message saying why they want to join. Just something simple
like "I'm interested in the study of fixed stars" or "I was away for a
while and would like to rejoin," anything that will let me know that
you're not joining the group to spam it. I'm tired of spammers joining
just to post ads about "handsome and cool bikers," online porn,
discount medicines or whatever. That's why I made this change. It's a
pain in the butt to have to delete spammers' messages and ban them
from my groups all the time. It looks like some of you are getting
tired of the spam, too.
(BTW: if you get banned from any of my groups, for spamming or making
trouble, you will be banned from all of the groups I own.)
Have a nice day.
