I agree: the topic of discussion in a newsgroup should be of interest
to the readers of that group, not necessarily in perfect accord with
the charter of the newsgroup.
And of course there is a general newsgroup for herpetology: sci.bio.herp,
which is gated to the herp-l mailing list. To subscribe, send

The list is administered by Michael Eisen; I handled the Usenet RFD/CFV
process to create the newsgroup last fall, together with several others.
