Yes it is a Biofuels list. You fail to notice the original title of 
the message Steve commented on, changing the title - it was "Oil and 
Israel". Note it's a *Biofuel* list, not just a biodiesel list or 
something - all energy issues are relevant to biofuels discussions. 
That is a long-established tradition of this list, much discussed and 
endorsed by the majority of the list membership. Before you get 
yourself too deeply involved in this discussion I'd strongly suggest 
you check out the previous messages in the thread. Here it all is, 
with the full thread indexed:

By the way, this second message of yours doesn't have it, but your 
first message has a proprietary footer implying you work for Amdocs, 
as does your email address. If that's the case I think you have an 
interest to declare here don't you?

Best wishes
