Sadly, I missed the original post, but the responses indicate that it must 
have been interesting.

However, we have:

Given the paucity of traffic on molbio.evolution (indeed, given the tiny 
number of messages that appear on BIONET in general), we should try
to avoid sending interesting strings to their deaths in the hinterlands.
Just because it does not fit some anal-retentive's idea of how to divide 
up the info-bio-sphere (e.g., MOLBIO.YET.ANOTHER.DISPENSABLE.GROUP)
does not mean that it isn't worth perusing by folks who like to read
about molecular evolution.
