I also think the split would force readers of bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts to
also subscribe to the proposed new newsgroup .pcr since those of us who do the
hands-on work in the lab keep our methods options open for any new twist or
technique that would improve our results or save time.

That is not what I'm concerned with. I think that the creation of a separate
group will promote more cross-posting and make it more difficult for me to
weed through the mass of articles twice, or even thrice if it is also
cross-posted to bionet.general (one of my pet peeves, but that's another
topic). There really is not that much traffic in the current group.
