If I can just add a small suggestion about this discussion. Perhaps the people involved in the discussion can use a bit of judgment: if the points being discussed are highly technical and/or very specifically directed at one or two individuals, then a posting to those individuals is appropriate. We don't all need to read about it. On the other hand, if you have a more general point to make, or wish to invite discussion, then a posting to the list is certainly appropriate and very welcome. However, in this case, please be aware that those of us who are not biophysicists will not have a clue what you're talking about if you use highly technical jargon. Similarly, if you are addressing the comments to a broad group, please avoid references that only one or two people will follow--a lot of the stuff posted is difficult to parse and seems destined for an "in-group." With a little thought about the recipients of your messages, these kinds of discussions can be very fruitful and enlightening, but otherwise they make most of us hit the old delete button rather quickly.
