I disagree.  For the last six months I have looked for a NG on 
mushrooms.  My searches come up empty.  I did not know what mycology 
meant, so I never did a "mycology" key word search.   I believe there 
are many, many people interested in mushrooms, hunting, growing, cooking, 
eating, who are not on this newsgroup, but would like to be a newsgroup 
about mushrooms.  There may be  enough space on this newsgroup for all of 
the above, but the fact is there is very little of the above on this 
group.  As my Daddy always said, "even if you have the world's best 
mousetrap, if you don't have the right packaging and marketing, then 
there will not be much of a path to your door".  This newsgroup just does 
not have a very eye catching packaging, this is why there should be a new 
newgroup started with "mushrooms" in its name.
