His machine's mailhandler has been functioning erratically, and he's not sure whether or not the call has been received.  He sent the call both to news.announce.newgroups and to Eliot Lear.  He asked me to forward the call.  If you have already received the call, please ignore this message.  Also, per Bob's request, please edit the "newsgroups" line to include news.groups, sci.philosophy.meta, talk.philosophy.misc, talk.politics.theory, alt.individualism and alt.atheism in addition to news.announce.newgroups and sci.philosophy.tech.  Thanks a lot!  -- David Bombardier    [email protected]  --------------------------------------------------------------------------- >From @att.UUCP:[email protected] Sun Feb  4 15:04:12 1990 Received: by iitmax.iit.edu 	(5.61+/IDA-1.2.8) id AA08078; Sun, 4 Feb 90 15:04:09 -0600 Date: Sun, 4 Feb 90 15:04:09 -0600 Message-Id: <[email protected]> From: [email protected] (R W Stubblefield +1 201 949 2846) To: [email protected] Cc: demodsb Subject: Another attempt to CALL FOR SPO VOTES Status: R  Eliot,  The att gateways are causing much trouble.  Please ignore this if you've already gotten my first attempt to call for votes for sci.philosophy.tech.  Otherwise, please submit what I have below the cut line.  For your information, I'm receiving mail this morning some of which was sent by people a week ago and some (like your CC to me answering Dave Bombardier's question) written yesterday.  Apparently they've fixed the att gateway problems to let current stuff through but still have a big backlog of past mail to work on.  Thanks, Bob Stubblefield ====================CUT LINE=========================================== Path: cbnewsh!rws From: [email protected] (r.w.stubblefield) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,sci.philosophy.tech Subject: CALL FOR VOTES - sci.philosophy.objectivism Message-ID: <[email protected]> Date: 2 Feb 90 14:51:46 GMT Reply-To: Robert W Stubblefield <[email protected]> Followup-To: news.groups Organization: AT&T Bell Laboratories Lines: 85   This is the first CALL FOR VOTES for the sci.philosophy.objectivism newsgroup, which is to be unmoderated.  If you are in favor of this group and charter (as defined below), send me mail with the single line of text:  YES for sci.philosophy.objectivism as proposed.  If you are opposed to the existence of this group with this charter, send me mail with the single line of text:  NO for sci.philosophy.objectivism as proposed.  I receive mail addressed to [email protected], 			[email protected], 			or att!houxa!bobs.  Because of the recent troubles with att gateways, the vote will run for 28 days.  Votes received after 3/2/90 will not be counted. ====================================================================  1.  The Name--SPO  Sci--because of the approach participants should use when contributing to this newsgroup.  What is scientific about it is that conclusions should be drawn by reasoning based on observations of reality.  Neither "Ayn Rand says so" nor "I just feel it's so" should be used as a premise for a conclusion.  Philosophy--because fundamental principles, at the base of all other human knowledge, will be the content.  All five branches of philosophy will be discussed.  Objectivism--because most participants will be people who have already grasped the fact that Ayn Rand has identified a set of fundamental principles that integrate to make a philosophy.  Most contributors should have actually read the relevant works by Ayn Rand before making any lengthy comments on a topic.  Posters who question her conclusions are NOT excluded.  Rational, reality-based, logical opponents asking specific questions are welcome.  2.  Charter  sci.philosophy.objectivism	for those who grasp that philosophy is 	a science and are interested in studying Ayn Rand's philosophy 	of Objectivism.  The primary content is intended to be 	reasoned analysis of philosophic principles (and their 	applications) based on facts of reality.  This current posting (in total) comprises a longer explanation of the charter.  Note that the word "primarily" allows the contributions of announcements, publications, classes, club meetings and such as long as they are interesting to people studying Objectivism.  It also allows the derivative use by honest, polite, serious folks who are not studying it but may want to learn more about Objectivism.  3.  Quality  Several things will help SPO achieve the quality its founders desire.  a)  The precise wording of the charter above should be used in Gene Spafford's list of newsgroups.  b)  This notice will be posted monthly.  c)  Guidelines that rational people should follow to attenuate noise of irrational posters will be posted periodically.  d)  Style guidelines arrived at within the newsgroup will be posted periodically.  e)  Guidelines for expressing disagreement will be posted periodically.  f)  The only action needed by system administrators should be to prevent the only way someone can initiate (indirect) force; i.e., they need to remove USENET privileges of those who fraudently associate their words with the signatures of others.  DISCLAIMER:  the intent of this group is not to represent Objectivism but to provide a forum for studying it.

The vote was opposed to such a group by 174 to 221.  Those in favor are listed first; those opposed, afterwards.  Since SPO was voted down, I will continue to use sci.philosophy.tech for my twice weekly philosophical questions and answers-- until I have a better alternative.  Many of the no voters indicated they would have voted yes for a group in another hierarchy, usually mentioning talk.  Some objected to labeling philosophy in general and Objectivism in particular as science.  Others were concerned about the amount of traffic that might be generated.  I wonder if some of the no voters would support me in an effort to create SPO as a moderated group with me as a moderator.  If anyone has something polite to say to me about this, please drop me some e-mail.
