Entomology interest group?

The bottom line:
Is there interest in a forum for molecular geneticists (or anyone
else) working in entomology?
I am assuming that this would not include Drosophilists, since they
already have a bulletin board of their own.
At a recent mosquito molecular biology meeting it was suggested that
we needed a mailserver to exchange information, and I offered to
establish one. After looking into the options, it seems to me that
the best options are a LISTSERV mailing list and a Bionet newsgroup.
I have also conducted a cost (in my time) / benefit (to the community)
analysis and think that the original idea of a group open only to
mosquito molecular biologists is too restrictive. I would prefer a
group that included all of entomology (considering the likely users,
probably heavily weighted toward molecular genetics).
Please mail comments directly to me (afc at gnv.ifas.ufl.edu). If there
is sufficient interest I will post the results to the net.
