Flame on!
BUZZZZZ! Wrong answer Derek. _I_ say it's spelled "paleo".
Flame off! ;-)

(Sound of Eric climbing onto soapbox.)
BTW, I agree about the "elitist filtering" concept. I have to a large extent
stopped reading many of the popular newsgroups, e.g. the sci.astro hierarchy,
due to the rapidly degenerating signal-to-noise ratio (Ron Baalke is probably on
of the few sources of actual content in those groups - thanks Ron!). I realize
that most of the trash is just people having fun or being mischievous, but blast
it, they waste a _lot_ of bandwidth (esp. Dr. Abian - God I hope he doesn't see
this!).
