Basic Moderation for Our SPH Email Addresses
Dean Ken Warner: We, the students of the School of Public Health, do respectfully request that the email address firstname.lastname@example.org be moderated. The number of emails that are not related to academic matters is growing and the SPH mailing list is now even being used by people who are not SPH students. Many other U-M schools use moderated lists, where incoming emails are scanned for basic academic value before they are sent out. Currently the SPH mailing list is not, which means that anyone could send out any number of emails to the entire SPH population without any prior authorization. As graduate students, we value our time and don't wish to waste it reading or deleting garbage email. As such, we add our names to this petition to request that the issue of a moderated SPH mailing list be immediately take up by the administration of the School of Public Health.
