I have to agree with Liz (and that's not because I'm biased since we
have the same name :-) ). You can pretty much tell from the title
what the post will be about. I also found the group while browsing
through the bionet newsgroups and probably wouldn't have subscribed if
the name of the group hadn't caught my eye. I like the title of this
group, anything too cryptic would miss the point.
