May I voice an objection to the creation of such specialized
groups? They do no one any favor. Most of us already subscribe
to enough yahoo groups and mailing lists that we're not about
to subscribe to yet another. If your new group is successful it 
bleeds discussion off from more general groups, yet it may not 
actually attract the real experts and enthusiasts.

It's an unnecessary balkanization of the internet, I think. 
Unquestionably a mistake.

Sure, if the pbs list were overwhelmed with torrents of
discussion of these two genera, a new yahoo group might be in
order, but not as things stand.
