Well, I have the impression some new groups (f.i. molbio.hiv) generate
very small amount of traffic. This could be due that scientist do not
use news a lot yet. For a modelling group,this is different, since it's
a computer-bound subject, so people are more tented to use the net.
As for bionet.computational: I do believe the name is too vague, wath is
it about? In bionet .software is allready more traffic, just because the
subject is restricted.
To filter out the interesting articles about modelling, in proteins,
xtallography and software, the molecular-modelling group could do it.
