This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are below. Newsgroup line: rec.models.rockets.politics Political issues in hobby rocketry. RATIONALE: rec.models.rockets.politics The newsgroup rec.models.rockets (RMR) exists to discuss hobby, amature, and professional rocketry. In the past few years a very vocal group within rec.models.rockets has taken to discussing the politics involved in many rocketry organizations. Rec.models.rockets.politics would give this group a place to discuss thier unique political views. These political discussions usually end up as offensive personal attacks and serve only to clutter rec.models.rockets and make it harder for users to find usefull information regarding rocketry. Several users have left the newsgroup rec.models.rockets because of these types of posts. CHARTER: rec.models.rockets.politics The newsgroup rec.models.rockets.politics would be a great compliment to the newsgroup rec.models.rockets. It would let users in express thier political views involving rocketry without requiring the users in rec.models.rockets to sift through all the politically oriented posts to find useful information. Commercial posts while not prohibited should be short and pertinent. Binary postings not encouraged. END CHARTER. PROCEDURE: This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups should be raised and resolved. The discussion period will continue for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this proposal is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For Votes (CFV) may be posted by a neutral vote taker if the discussion warrants it. Please do not attempt to vote until this happens. All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.
