We're back online!

As many of you will be aware, a few months ago Biofind was hit by a sustained and sophisticated spam campaign which took our community offline for several weeks.

We are pleased to announce that Biofind is now back up and running and stable again.

Hello all,

We recently experimented with adding threaded comments to the rumor mill in an attempt to facilitate multiple strands of conversation within a rumor.

A happy new year to all of our community members. Thank you for your continued support throughout 2008 whilst we moved the site to a new platform.

Moderation policy

This week we have been keeping a tight reign on the quality of posts and the Biotech Rumor Mill now appears to be delivering good discussion and content.
We will edit out posts that are deemed off topic, rude or defamatory or contain profanities.

Please keep new threads and posts related to the Biotech industry.

Any other information about Biofind or the running of the Mill we would be happy to deal with via email (

Thanks for your support while we have been upgrading the site

This week we have been able to make some fixes to the site and open up the site to completely anonymous postings again. The traffic appears to be returning.
We have also been adding more features for registered users. For those of you who have already registered(more than 500 to date), you will see we have added a number of useful features such as an indicator of the new posts which you not have read yet.
