The longer discussions (threads) tend to be somewhat philosophical,
about cladistics (pros and cons), biogeography, science education, museum
management, and the taxonomy of groups anywhere from species to kingdom
level. Interspersed among these threads are more practical
announcements and queries about job and grant opportunities, and even
requests for addresses of biologists someone might be trying to track down.
The topics are wide ranging. One person's banter is another person's
philosophical discussion, and vice versa, but selective deleting takes care
of whatever you might find uninteresting.
I would give it at least a week to see if the variety of discussions
include subjects you would find interesting.
