Because, not everyone who reads this group reads
bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts.  Let's say, for example, that I am a protein
chemist and am simply not interested in PCR, DNA, RNA etc. - I could save
considerable time reading .proteins.  BTW, I do read both, because I am not
strictly a protein chemist.  But I have cross-posted and have received
replys regarding protein questions from people reading the .proteins group.
 I really think that there is nothing wrong in cross-posting to the two
groups, I'm sure that the subscription list is somewhat different on each.
