Hello everyone,

I'm looking for examples of virtual communities that gave bearth to
other virtual communities. I mean that the members of one virtual
community (a mailing-list for instance) decided to have two virtual
communities instead of one. The first one is about a subject and the
second one is about another subject (linked to the first one, more
specific, for instance).

Have you ever heard of cases like this?

Many thanks.
