Why is it that this group appears to be continually concerned with
questions pertaining to sociobiology and genetic notions of race? There is
nothing that this group discusses that I would seriously connect with
anthropology as a professional discipline as it is today.

Is this because the popular perception of anthropology still revolves
around theories of biological determinism and scientific reduction? Is the
number of computer scientists in this group robbing it of the ability to
address questions of cultural meaning (or anything meaningfully for that

Getting pissed off!
