Today, Mike, I posted a reply to a comment you made back in 2011 about sci.bio.paleontology.  Had  I seen it back then, I would have had much better news for you: John Harshman and I were trying to return the near-extinct newsgroup sci.bio.paleontology to its true roots for over half a year and had had a  fair amount of success but no one else was interested enough to contribute.

Except for spammers of solutions manuals, the newsgroup  was looking more and more  healthy until someone calling his/herself "Thrinaxodon" [and using aliases like "Aldous Huxley" and "Nyikos repellent"] and  actually having an interest in paleontology decided [s]he wanted a reputation as a destructive troll and spammer, and all hell  broke loose.

It's enough to try and make that newsgroup a moderated newsgroup, but that has some disadvantages and I'm only  wanting that as a last resort.
