Should We Change Our Name?

re the recent increase in unwanted threads in bionet.general,
I know that there is always tension between the lumpers and splitters
among USENET hierarchies but perhaps bionet.general is too broad a title,
encompassing
	-topics of _general_ interest to biologists
	-topics that don't fit in any of the existing groups
and	- random observations on vaguely biological topics

by analogy with other parts of USENET, maybe a these should be handled by

	bionet.general
	bionet.misc
and	soc.culture.bionet or bionet.chat 

respectively. 
Just a thought.
