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

	subscribe herp-l <Your Name>
	listproc at xtal220.harvard.edu

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