What's the problem?  If you have 40 friends who want a news group, WHAM you
have it very quickly!  That's how we started bionet.info-theory so quickly - it
was a group of people with a mailing list already in existence.  It's much
better than having all those unused news groups hanging around, like
bionet.bork.bork.swedish.meat.ball (which was still there last time I looked
;-)!
