Judging from some of the traffic in here, this may be a sensitive
topic, but I'm really curious.
Following the recent flap over us.*, and the hopes of some people
I know to create a new top level hierarchy, I'm trying to research the
origin of current top-level groups ouside of the big-7 + alt.
* Why does bionet.* exist as a top level hierarchy: Why aren't these
groups under sci.bio?
* What's the history behind this? How long has bionet been around?
* Did it experience resistance or propagation problems when it was
created? It's still only around 50%.
