REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
======================

This is a request for discussion on the creation of a newsgroup for
debates about the Atari range of personal computers.

Group Name
==========
comp.sys.atari.advocacy

Status
======
Unmoderated

Rationale
=========
This group will separate a section of discussion from the current
newsgroup comp.sys.atari.st and atari.8bit.

The discussion of advocacy currently takes up over 50% of the items
in the atari.st newsgroup and so it is felt that the original
purpose of the newsgroup is being left behind.

New users and people who need information about the Atari ST can
continue to use the original group and would hopefully get more
attention if there is less advocacy mail present.

What a FAQ for this group could contain is also a matter for
discussion.

Discussion
==========
Comments on this proposed new newsgroup should be posted to the USENET
newsgroup news.groups.  If the reader is not able to do so, comments may
be e-mailed to any of the proposers, at the addresses below, and we will 
post them.

Voting
======
If no problems arise, voting will start one month from the posting date
of this RFD.

FIRST CALL FOR VOTES
====================

This is a Call for votes on the creation of a newsgroup for
debates about the Atari range of personal computers.

Group Name
==========
comp.sys.atari.advocacy

Status
======
Unmoderated

Charter
=======
This group is a forum for discussion of topics in connection with the Atari
range of computers - marketing, capabilities, comparisons and other
arguments... It will move discussions of this nature from the existing
comp.sys.atari.st (and atari.8-bit) newsgroups, which will exist for a more
advice orientated discussions.

Users will be requested to not post the above discussions in the existing
newsgroups if advocacy is formed.

Rationale
=========
This group will separate a section of discussion, mainly from the current
newsgroup comp.sys.atari.st but also relatted topics including the Atari 8-bit
range of computers (atari.8bit) and the new Atari Falcon computers.

The discussion of advocacy currently takes up over 50% of the items
in the atari.st newsgroup and so it is felt that the original
purpose of the newsgroup is being left behind.

New users and people who need information about the Atari ST/8-bit computers
can continue to use the original group and would hopefully get more
attention if there is less advocacy mail present.
