We don't really need to spray these all over the Internet, do we? Seems
like a major waste of bandwidth and disk space.
This isn't to say that biological images aren't valuable, just that a news
group dedicated to them should probably restrict itself to notices of image
availability, image content, and some technically related material. If
mixed in with that were a steady stream of images it would dilute the
information content and probably get the newsgroup restricted to a very
short disk life.
It *would* be nice if there were a definitive Biology Images Web page,
especially one that had some way to search for images by content, something
like "list all images of Drosophila wings."
