I wonder if information on specific bacteria or related bacteria could be 
posted to bionet.microbiology. Recognizing that those interested in a specific 
topic may not want to wade through other, "useless" information, I am leery of 
forming ultra specific newsgroups. As someone intested in coliform bacteria 
and pseudomonads, I find the bionet.micro newsgroup a useful place to pick up 
information. Our discipline needs more interaction from those involved in 
different aspects of microbiology, not fragmentation of knowledge. That's my 
$0.02 worth.
