Even though I stated that I *preferred* two groups (one for general mapping 
discussions, one for GDB), I also stated that the GDB group was unmoderated 
and that we would not prevent or actively discourage general discussions of 
human chromosome mapping there.  If the users of this newsgroup do not wish 
it to continue as a more general group, or cannot muster the necessary 
support, GDB will be *very* happy to have any such discussions move to the
bionet.molbio.gdb (GDB) group.  PLEASE feel free to use it for that purpose if 
you cannot develop an alternative based on the current group.
