Let us not forget that without these posts, there would not be much else
going on in this newsgroup.  However, that might not be such a bad task for
a moderator; i.e.,  to come up with topics for discussion.  For example:

What are the hot ideas is ecological parasitology?
What are the hot ideas in molecular parasitology?

Are permanent treatments for parasites realistic goals given the recent
accounts of the evolution of resistance and second site mutations that
lower the costs of resistance?
