This is a formal CALL FOR DISCUSSION for a moderated group.  
The formal proposal follows:


NAME OF GROUP:  comp.society.folklore
MODERATOR: Eric S. Raymond  <[email protected]>

TOPICS TO BE COVERED:

1. Maintenance and discussion of the Jargon File.

2. Posting/archiving of anecdotes, facetia, and satire illuminating aspects
   of hacker culture, including things like computer filks and war stories
   about famous hacks of the past.

3. Accumulation of serious oral-history material from the early days
   and forgotten but interesting byways of modern computing.

4. Posting/archiving of `retrocomputing' software, that is emulations of
   archaic environments or tools or `code satires' (things like the JCL and
   ADVENT shells, INTERCAL, the 029 card-punch emulating editor,

5. Discussion & criticism of hacker-history compendia  in other media, esp.
   books like Jennings' _The_Devouring_Fungus_, Stoll's _Cuckoo's_Egg_, and
   Steven Levy's _Hackers_.

CHARTER:

   To give the hacker culture an on-line memory. Postings would be carefully
selected but not (in general) edited. An archive would be maintained and
made publicly available.

   A fair percentage of the traffic would probably be humor of various sorts,
but the criterion for inclusion would be primarily its value as carriers for
hacker memes.

   Attempts to pursue religious wars using the group as a forum would be
ruthlessly flushed.

    The group would be open to co-moderation by representatives of important
hacker subcultures past or present, subject to net consensus.


RATIONALE:

  The existing newsgroup with similar name in the ALT heirarchy has a
great deal of volume and a problem with noise.  This proposal would
create a new MODERATED group to cover much of the same material but
would endeavor to reduce the noise.  The existing ALT group would not
be affected in any way by this proposal because USENET and ALTNET are
different and ALT groups are not bound by USENET rules.  Also, the
continuation of the existing ALT group would mean that an unmoderated
forum would also exist.  Also, this new group would become the
preferred forum for discussions of the Jargon File and submissions to
the Jargon File.

  The name was chosen because although computer-related, it is not a
technical group and most non-technical computer-related groups are in
the comp.society.* portion of the name space.  The folklore extension
makes the general area of discussion clear to newcomers.

  Eric Raymond and I talked about this idea in e-mail before Christmas
and he has already agreed to act as moderator should the group be
created. 


PROCEDURES:

  Per the USENET Guidelines, discussion should take place in news.groups
for at least two weeks.  If a consensus has developed by that time,
then I plan to make a formal CALL FOR VOTES then and count them myself.
Do NOT vote now.  Time is counted from the posting to n.a.n by the
moderator of that group.

In the spring of 1991, comp.society.folklore was created; the intention
was that it would be a moderated Usenet newsgroup with a similar charter
to that of alt.folklore.computers.  Comp.society.folklore experienced
severe technical problems at the outset, which were never diagnosed
satisfactorily.  Some articles were posted to it by the moderator, Eric
Raymond, but they generally did not make it to Usenet at large.

Eric tells me that in fact only half a dozen articles were ever submitted
to comp.society.folklore.  It seems likely that the propagation problem
was partially responsible for this; no articles means no followups.
But in addition, many users simply prefer the faster interaction pos-
sible in an unmoderated newsgroup to the orderliness possible in a
moderated one.  And with the existing channel of alt.folklore.computers
in operation, there was little incentive to debug comp.society.folklore.

Now, I think alt.folklore.computers has been a pretty successful group,
and therefore I think it's long past time that it was moved onto Usenet--
or, if you prefer, into the so-called "7 main hierarchies".  I therefore
propose that comp.society.folklore be converted to unmoderated, and that
when this is done, alt.folklore.computers be aliased to it and thus
cease to exist under that name.

I proposed this informally a couple of months ago, and drew a smattering
of responses covering a variety of opinions.  It should be noted in
particular that Eric Raymond had no objection (and that he's going to
see a copy of this posting); this is not a case of "hostile demoderation".

I am submitting this to news.announce.newgroups because I judge that
the most appropriate procedure, if this proposal is to be implemented,
would be the standard procedure for creating a new group.  This is not
necessarily intended to be a precedent for other demoderations; this
one is not hostile and the moderated group has no traffic.  I would ask
Dave Lawrence (the news.announce.newgroups moderator) to comment on the
procedure in a Moderator's Note.

[[ Moderation's Note: we've done such things before, and I really
don't mind it furthering precedent, especially in lieu of a consenting
moderator. -- tale ]]

Followups are directed to news.groups.  My intention is to NOT take part
in any discussion there myself; I reckon the proposal can stand or fall
on its own merits or deficiencies, which will no doubt be aptly described
by others.  I plan to call a vote in mid to late November.

At the start of November, I wrote in these newsgroups:

The discussion period has raised a number of alternative possibilities,
the most-discussed being "Do nothing; it is not an improvement to move a
group out of alt.*".  I now call for votes of Yes or No ON THE ABOVE
PROPOSAL.  If you prefer some other action, vote No; there can be further
discussion on other proposals if this one fails.

The group-creation criteria will be applied: the Yes votes must outnumber
the No votes by a difference of 100 *and* by a factor of 2 for the proposal
to pass.

      To vote Yes, mail a message to:   [email protected]
      To vote No,  mail a message to:    [email protected]

A daemon will do its inhuman best to acknowledge all votes.  I should note
that a small number of sites have in the past reported trouble reaching
addresses ending in @sq.com; if this is still a problem for anyone, try
@sq.sq.com as a second choice.  We also accept email by UUCP from utzoo
and (with lower connectivity) uunet; for UUCP the sitename is simply sq,
e.g. ...!utzoo!sq!vote-no.

The voting period runs from Monday, November 23, to Monday, December 14,
1992, inclusive, reckoned by the local time in Toronto.  One repeat-CFV
will be issued on or about December 2.

[This repeat Call For Votes is identical with my posting of November 23,

 an additional mailing address for votes.]

Well, there is a procedural problem here.  Normally if a mass acknowledgment
is posted, it is done together with a repeat Call For Votes, which makes
sense since if your vote didn't arrive then you know where to try again.
However, I announced in advance that there would be only one repeat CFV,
which has gone out, and (as allowed by the guidelines) I didn't do a mass
ack at that time.

If I repeat the CFV now, wouldn't that be considered improper electioneering?
After all, the usual purpose of a repeat-CFV is to attract more votes in
favor of the proposal.  But if I post a mass ack with a repeat-CFV, and
the proposal then wins by a narrow margin, people will complain that the
extra CFV made the difference and I had originally promised not to issue it.
If I post a mass ack without a repeat-CFV, then people whose copy of the
CFV article expired may complain that they don't know where to vote.  Either
way, people may complain that the mass ack was posted too near the end of
the voting period (votes must be received by Monday, December 14, reckoned
by Toronto time).  And then, if I don't post, then people will complain that
I'm being unresponsive to criticism of my vote-taking, which I'm trying to
bend over backwards to conduct in a manner beyond reproach.

My decision is to take the second of these three options, subject to the
approval of the moderator of news.announce.newgroups [which, if you see
this, has been granted].  If you want a copy of the CFV (which contains
the text of the original proposal, and various voting addresses) please
mail me at [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected] and ask for one.

Below is a list of the votes received up to 1:45 pm EST, December 9, as
identified by From: line.  Last day to vote is Monday, December 14.
This is not a thoroughly cleaned-up list and may contain a few spurious
entries.  From: lines such as root and mailer-daemon have been deleted.

Followups are directed to news.groups.  If you post a followup, please

My proposal to unmoderate comp.society.folklore and make it a replacement
for alt.folklore.computers has been given one of the most decisive defeats
I have ever seen a newsgroup proposal suffer.

Frankly, I expected my proposal to fail its vote.  But my guess was
that the Yes and No votes would be roughly equal.  It's true that the
postings during the discussion period were mostly on one side, but the
whole reason for conducting a vote is that the balance of postings
is not necessarily representative of the readership as a whole --
we've seen that in other newsgroup votes.

In other words, my guess might have been wrong.  [Well, it was!]
And since I still believed that the proposed change was a Good Thing,
and I had raised the issue in the first place, I felt obliged to go
through with the vote.  The issue was clear within a couple of days --
a secret which helped me keep my equanimity in the flamewar -- but the
guidelines do not allow a vote to be aborted once it's started.  At the
end of this article, just for interest, I include a day-by-day summary
of the messages received in the ballot boxes.

If my original guess had been close and the proposal had failed by a
narrow margin, I would have considered alternative plans for "promoting
alt.folklore.computers out of the sewer".  The decisive vote makes it
clear that any such proposal would fail, and I would like to thank the
voters for delivering this message so clearly (and, for the most part,
politely).  This is my last word on the topic of comp.society.folklore,
until and unless someone *else* proposes doing something with it.
In case there are any followups, I have directed them to news.groups.


In each list of votes below, the names and addresses are given as found
on the From: line of the mail message(s) received.  Where there was a
personal name in the message body but not one in the From: line, I have
added it in square brackets.  The list is alphabetized by surnames where
I could identify these, otherwise by first name, login name, etc. as shown
in the left-hand column.  I have done my best to get everything right, but
in such a long list there may be a few errors.  Heck, there may even be
a few votes missing.  Anyone want to call for a re-vote? :-)


The following votes were not counted:

(a) 1 obvious prank:
		
		[email protected]

(b) 5 votes without names issued from non-personal accounts:

		[email protected] (Operator)
		Iowa Student Computer Association <[email protected]>
		[email protected] (Praktikum Verteilte Systeme)
		[email protected] (System PRIVILEGED Account)
		[email protected] (VIDA Telnet Account)

(c) 3 people who each voted once or twice each way, with no clear
    statement that the later vote was intended as a correction:

(d) 1 person who sent in a vote which indicated in its text that it
    was not a vote on the entire proposal:

      Virden      [email protected] (Larry W. Virden, x2487)

    (Yes, I did read every vote.  But not until after the voting period
     was over.)

(e) 2 people who asked to withdraw their original votes:

      Beckett     Dave Beckett <[email protected]>
      Johansen    Frank Tore Johansen <[email protected]>


Duplicate votes from identical addresses were not enumerated --
that is, the voter lists were run through "sort -u".  Messages from
different addresses for what appears to be the same person are also
considered as duplicates, and marked /DUPLICATE/ in the lists below.
(There is no implication of wrongdoing or even silliness in this;
people will sometimes forget that they already voted, or they will
re-vote, maybe from another site, if an auto-ack does not reach them.)

Messages which appeared to be from different people with the same
name are marked /NAMESAKE/.

Votes with many repetitions of "Yes" or "No", with numerous exclamation
marks, or with such rhetoric as "A thousand times Yes/No" -- there was
one of those on each side, by the way -- were counted as one vote each.
Just thought I'd make that clear for next time. :-)


The following votes were counted in the opposite sense to that of the
ballot box in which each vote originally arrived.  These appearance of
the names in the Yes or No list below shows how they were counted.

(a) 7 people who wrote to say either that they had changed their mind
    or that the auto-acknowledgment showed that their vote had reached
    the other ballot box from the one they had intended.

      Sward       David Reeve Sward <[email protected]>
      VanDevende  [email protected] (Steve VanDevender)

(b) 1 person who voted 8 times, voting the same way every time but the
    first.  Also the first vote to arrive was marked "third time lucky",
    I felt that the other 7 votes were a sufficiently clear expression
    of intent that the majority of his personalities should win. :-)
    I think we know one more person that the auto-reply did not reach...

      Plum        <[email protected]> [Nicolai E.M. Plum]
		/DUPLICATE/ <[email protected]> [Nicolai E.M. Plum]
		/DUPLICATE/ Mr N E Plum <[email protected]>



AND NOW, THE VOTES.

First, the pinheads, lackeys, stooges, and would-be hijackers :-)
-- the Yes votes.

And the day-by-day counts of messages in the ballot boxes.  These add to
higher numbers than the above totals, because of duplicated votes and
the odd administrative message that I filed in the ballot boxes for
safekeeping.

FORMAL PROPOSAL
----------------------------------------------------------------------
NAME: comp.society.folklore (moderated)

MODERATOR: Eric S. Raymond <[email protected]>

CHARTER:  

maintain an online history of Computer Folklore and Culture;
discussion related to the maintenance of the "Jargon File"; other
material related to Computer Folklore and Culture, past and present.

VOTING PROCEDURE:  

The voting period will last 21 days beginning with the posting of this
notice to news.announce.newgroups.  Votes must be clear and
unambiguous and preferably will be of the form "I vote YES for the
group as proposed" or "I vote NO for the group as proposed".

I will endeavor to post a single mass ACK at the 14 day point
(approximately).  I will not send email ACKs.  Replies to this posting
will go to the voting address.  Followups have been directed to
news.groups per the guidelines.

Votes should be mailed to:  [email protected]

RATIONALE
----------------------------------------------------------------------

There is demand and traffic for a newsgroup about Computer Folklore
and Computer Culture (evidence alt.folklore.computers).  Also, the
traffic about the Jargon File tends to spill into all sorts of groups
all over the net.  The existing ALTnet group has high volume and an
ever decreasing signal/noise ratio.  A fair number of the postings to
the ALTnet group are wildly inaccurate in answers to questions about
the history of computing culture.  A moderated group can filter out 
such postings as needed.

By creating a regular USENET group that is moderated, a forum will be 
available that will have a good signal/noise ratio and also tend to
siphon off Jargon File items from the more technical newsgroups (many
of whose readers consider them noise).

The proposed moderator has experience in moderating USENET groups and
is one of the people currently maintaining the Jargon File and hence
is qualified to act as moderator.  He has agreed to moderate this
group if the proposal passes.

The proposed name was chosen because the comp.society.* area is intended
for non-technical computing related groups such as this and the proposed
name should be clear to any first time USENET user.

The existing ALTnet group alt.folklore.computers will not be affected by
any part of this vote and will continue to provide an unmoderated forum.

Here is the list of people whose mail seems to contain a vote one way
or the other.  It was obtained by running grep and sort across the
mailbox.  No attempt has been made to eliminate duplicate or conflicting
votes.

Votes should be sent only to:  [email protected]
A reply to this posting will go to the correct mailbox.

Please be sure that your votes are clear and unambiguous.  I've had
some problems with folks who include lots of text that appears to me
to be commentary/rationale/discussion rather than a vote.

It appears that the moderated newsgroup comp.society.folklore
has passed.  There were no late votes received.

I have made a quick attempt to remove duplicates, but it is still
possible that there are some.  If so, I'm sure someone will point
this out in news.groups shortly.

I count 170 YES votes and 28 NO votes.

By my math,  (170 - 28)  > 100
             (170 / 198) > (2/3)  
which are the criteria as I understand them.
(Again, if I am confused, I'm sure that it will be pointed out shortly.)
