During all of 1993 there were 6187 messages posted to the METHODS
newsgroup.  This year, undoubtedly because of the publicity generated
by Paul Hengen's TIBS column, the postings are up to 8080 as of this
one by just 15 May 1994.  This is about 60 messages per day!!

Are we reaching overload yet??  Please note that there is currently
under discussion on BIOFORUM/bionet.general a proposal for an
OLIGONUCLEOTIDES group, and, although a past attempt to split off a
group from METHODS failed decisively, perhaps it may be time to
consider other proposals again?????
