Although there have been some favourable responses to this idea, when this
came up before here I seem to remember a thumbs down, on the basis that most
people use a variety of techniques. Though I mostly use this group for PCR
info, establishing a new group would not stop people still sticking
PCR-related questions in this (excellent) group. Then one would need to search
two groups. I wonder if a compromise might be possible. Could it be arranged
that all postings with PCR in the title be organised together? It would
then require a convention about PCR in the title, so things like 'My primers
failed again' do not get missed. Of course, this could be a slipperry
slope to splitting up the newsgroup contents page into a lot of sub-headings.
Would that be a bad idea? Maybe not as bad as breakaway groups. Paul???
