I'd vote for such a newsgroup - I appeciate that I am often guitly of adding 
to threads in this innapproriate way, but once started it is difficult to 

The alternatives I know of are 


and these could also benefit from an offloading of ethical and social issues 
into the proposed group. I have cross posted this to these groups as well, 
in the hope that maybe sufficient people will be interested, together with 
someone who actually knows how to get a new group going!
