    Hi Histocare and any other relatively new
      people to


      First, hello from Bill and I in beautiful Vancouver and NSH where
      histologists are enjoying old friends and making new friends from
      around the
      world. Let's remember histology is still a pretty small field in
      the US with
      about 25,000 histologists working in about 7,000 labs, plus more
      and more
      working in research labs and companies. Over a career, you're
      likely to meet many of them if
      you come to enough NSHs. For those of us who have been on Histonet
      since the
      beginning (1996?), we would like to remind others of the facts of
    The Histonet listserver is an email listserver
      for the histology
      profession that is managed by Dr. Margraf and Dr. Cope-Yokoyama
      and is run on
      computers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
      policies prohibit advertising, but do allow posting of jobs,
      probably so
      everybody can dream about being a histologist in some distant
      place. There are
      even some temp positions and jobs wanted emails posted every now
      and then. 
    Histocare, your first posting was no problem
      and we enjoy
      seeing all the ways histologists use to market their talents.
      Three posts in
      one week is a little redundant. We got it the first time.
    Companies (Vendors)  are
      permitted to post in response to problems of labs when they have
      positive to contribute. Histonet currently has more than 4000
      members from
      throughout the world, with many thousands more who keep up with it
      through the
      archives. The archives have over 30,000 visits a month from over
      50 different
    We all want to read questions and answers about
      problems in
      histology. Many of us remember before Histonet when labs had to
      actually solve
      their problems by themselves. Now over 30,000 times a month a
      histology problem
      is solved by one of the eloquent answers of contributors to
    And Histocare, you can be anonymous on Histonet
      if you like,
      but you might want to search the archives for others opinions on
      it. It has
      been discussed previously. And when you have a website, you can’t
      be anonymous,
      because I was able to do a whois search and get your name and
      address. I would
      recommend using your name and credentials proudly. 
    So, let’s get back to solving histology
      problems on Histonet and leave
      Dr. Margraf and Dr. Cope-Yokoyama alone. They have patients and
      stuff they’re
      working on. Just remember to treat others in your profession with
      respect on
      Histonet. You just might meet them one day at NSH. And remember to
      think twice
      (or three times) before hitting the send button with a negative
      message. Thousands of us
      really don’t want to hear it.
    Histonet welcomes all histology questions and a
      majority of the participants think if you don’t know the answer,
      it’s not a
      dumb question, so feel free to ask. Those that don’t think so will
      flame you
      mercilessly off list for posting, but I recommend you ignore them.
    A little research in the archives shows me that
      94% of the
      time an email war breaks out on Histonet, testosterone is
