ADHESIONS is a list for discussion of topics of interest to women and their health.

ADHESIONS does not accept advertisements. Questions and discussions initiated by ADHESIONS subscribers about products and services ARE appropriate. This provides an avenue for help, hints and recommendations among the colleagues on this list. PLEASE!!! DO NOT FLAME EACH OTHER ON THE LIST. There is a difference between healthy disagreement and downright nastiness (We can't define it, but we know it when I see it). If you have an opinion for someone send it directly to them. People subscribed to the list may lose interest if this becomes a problem. WE WILL and HAVE removed people from the list for this offense.


  1. Always use a descriptive subject line.
  2. Always sign your postings. Include your name, your e-mail address and your institutional affiliation. But don't go overboard.
  3. Do not send encoded documents to the list. Ascii text only, please.
  4. Please try to keep the "chaff" - the messages that don't need to be sent to the entire list - to a minimum. These should be sent directly to the offerer. If you are unsure how to direct your reply to the individual instead of the list, check with your local e-mail system administrators. You may have to create a fresh message rather than using a reply function. (Remember that ADHESIONS is configured so that replies are sent to the entire list, not just the individual who posted the message.) To determine whether something should be sent to the entire list, ask yourself "Does this only involve one person, or will many ADHESIONS readers likely be interested in my message?".
  5. When sending a reply to the list, DO NOT INCLUDE THE ENTIRE PREVIOUS MESSAGE. Extract any relevant portions, if necessary.
  6. Keep your postings within the scope of the list.
  7. Absolutely NO Profanity will be tolerated


This forum is international and freely available to anyone with access to a computer. For your own protection, consider this in posting to the list.
