PROPOSED GROUP: comp.unix.advocacy		(unmoderated)

CHARTER:

 For discussions of the form 'Unix sucks!', 'Unix rules!', 'Unix is
obsolete!', 'Unix is better/worse than system X', and similar.

RATIONAL:

 Discussions of this form currently infest various other groups where
they are generally not wanted; the most visible current example is in
comp.sys.dec and comp.sys.hp, with comp.unix.user-friendly arguably
overrun by them; past discussions have happened on comp.unix.misc and
comp.unix.questions, among others. Creation of a comp.unix.advocacy
newsgroup would create a place for people interested in such discussions
to hold them without disrupting other newsgroups, along the line of
other .advocacy groups.

Caution:

 If you have comments that you want to make sure I read, please send
a copy to me by email, as I may miss a comment posted to news.groups.

       unmoderated comp.unix.advocacy group vote passes 164:32
 
There were 164 YES votes and 32 NO votes, for a total of 196 valid
votes.  There was 1 abstain.
 
For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES
and NO) votes.  There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO
votes.  Thus, the group passes.
 
There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.
If no serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the
moderator of news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly
thereafter.
