    Ideas on where to recruit new users

    So, in the past I had tried posting in forums of various Cancer related sites to try and convince those already interested in the science to join in. However, I found rather quickly that this sort of thing is pretty much looked upon as "spamming". Unless of course someone deliberately asked for...
