Re: MASTER OT detections

   It would be better to restrict MASTER OT postings
to CVs or other unusual objects in vsnet-alert,
and to avoid posting apparent LPVs or known variable
stars (such as pulsating variables).
As in MASTER's postings in ATEL, it would be advised
to supply more information (such as suggested type,
counterpart etc).  People have apparently become confused
and started reporting observations of these MASTER OT
detections (of ordinary objects) considering that
they were unusual phenomena.
