	I suggested this to Joe last year, because I'm already losing
lot of tiome on news, and when I go in such of my favorite newsgroup,
I'm a little bit disapointed that the only messages available are not
about molecular biology of evolution, but religion (and from some who
clearly didn't read a good traduction of the bible...).

	So, I'm always agree with this (also, I think that lot
of good contributors of this group are away because of the bad
rate in signal/noise). Another soution could be a moderator...
