Creation of newsgroup uk.rec.lepidoptera

While I think that this would be an awesome service for UK and European
lepidopterists and enthusiasts, it would sadly probably lower the activity
that we have on LEPS-L.  As most are aware, there are quiet times when those
faithful posters from the British Isles are the only ones contributing.  I,
for one, would be disappointed if they were to depart to their own
discussion group.

Not that there can't be two or more.  Just a plea for the maintaining of a
united, completely international forum for the discussion of lepidoptera
(O.K., preferably in English, ethnocentrically speaking).
