This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are below.  Newsgroup line: sci.med.diseases.blood	diseases of the blood.  RATIONALE: sci.med.diseases.blood  There are many different diseases that affect blood. In the United States alone approximately 72,000 people have sickle cell anemia with about 2,000,000 carrying the trait. There are 20,000 hemophilia patients in the U.S. Each year, nearly 27,000 adults and more than 2,000 children in the United States learn that they have leukemia (statistics are from NIH and Cancernet web sites). There is now a listserv named MPD-SUPPORT-L which has 600+ recipients and has a daily traffic of 10 to 20 postings. MPD stands for Myelo Proliferative Disorders, which are diseases of the blood. The myeloproliferative disorders include polycythemia vera (PV), chronic myelogenous leukemia, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, and essential thrombocythemia (ET). This newsgroup will include these plus all other diseases of the blood including sickle cell anemia. AltaVista and HotBot have been searched with the keywords of "blood" and "hematology" and no alternate newsgroups have been found.  CHARTER: sci.med.diseases.blood  Many people have some form of blood disease, either detected or not. The purpose of this newsgroup is to establish electronic media for communication between patients, scientists and any other individuals with interest in diseases of the blood. Such communications will provide quick and effective means to exchange information and knowledge, offer encouragement, and solve problems.  The sci.med.diseases.blood newsgroup will target participants who are afflicted with any blood disorder. Doctors, researchers, students or anyone with interest in diseases of the blood will also be welcome.  A FAQ for new users will be posted on a regular basis.  No binary posts will be allowed.  No advertisements will be allowed.  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 newsgroup 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.  This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal". Please refer to these documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any questions about the process.  DISTRIBUTION:  This RFD will be crossposted to the following newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups,bionet.general, sci.med, sci.med.laboratory, sci.med.pathology, alt.support.hemophilia  and the following mailing list: mpd-support-l Subscribe by: Email to: [email protected] Subject line: Anything you want but not blank.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES: READ THIS BEFORE VOTING  The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest in reading the proposed newsgroup, and soliciting votes from uninterested parties defeats this purpose.  Do *not* distribute this CFV;  instead, direct people to the official CFV as posted to news.announce.newgroups. Distributing specific voting instructions or pre-marked copies of this CFV is considered vote fraud.  This is a public vote:  All email addresses, names and votes will be listed in the final RESULT post.  The name used may be either a real name or an established Usenet handle.  At most one vote is allowed per person or per account.  Duplicate votes will be resolved in favor of the most recent valid vote.  Voters must mail their ballots directly to the votetaker.  Anonymous, forwarded, or proxy votes are not valid, nor are votes mailed from WWW/HTML/CGI forms (which should not exist).  Votes from nonexistent accounts are also invalid, and the votetaker will reject any "munged" address he cannot decipher immediately.  Please direct any questions to the votetaker at <[email protected]>.  HOW TO VOTE:  Extract the ballot from the CFV by deleting everything before and after the "BEGINNING OF BALLOT" and "END OF BALLOT" lines.  Don't worry about the spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that your reply inserts.  Please, DO NOT send the entire CFV back to me!  Fill in the ballot as shown below.  Please provide your REAL NAME and indicate your desired vote in the appropriate locations inside the ballot.  Examples of how to properly indicate your vote:    [ YES     ]  example.yes.vote   [ NO      ]  example.no.vote   [ ABSTAIN ]  example.abstention   [ CANCEL  ]  example.cancellation  DO NOT modify, alter or delete any information in this ballot! If you do, the voting software will probably reject your ballot.  When finished, MAIL the ballot to: < [email protected] > Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.  If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker about the problem.  You are responsible for reading your ack and making sure your vote is registered correctly.  If these instructions are unclear, please consult the Introduction to Usenet Voting or the Usenet Voting FAQ at http://www.stanford.edu/~neilc/uvv.  ======== BEGINNING OF BALLOT: Delete everything before this line ======= .----------------------------------------------------------------------- | 1ST CALL FOR VOTES: sci.med.diseases.blood | Official Usenet Voting Ballot  (Do not remove this line!) |----------------------------------------------------------------------- | Please provide your real name, or your vote may be rejected.

This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are below. Newsgroup line: sci.med.diseases.blood diseases of the blood. RATIONALE: sci.med.diseases.blood There are many different diseases that affect blood. In the United States alone approximately 72,000 people have sickle cell anemia with about 2,000,000 carrying the trait. There are 20,000 hemophilia patients in the U.S. Each year, nearly 27,000 adults and more than 2,000 children in the United States learn that they have leukemia (statistics are from NIH and Cancernet web sites). There is now a listserv named MPD-SUPPORT-L which has 600+ recipients and has a daily traffic of 10 to 20 postings. MPD stands for Myelo Proliferative Disorders, which are diseases of the blood. The myeloproliferative disorders include polycythemia vera (PV), chronic myelogenous leukemia, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, and essential thrombocythemia (ET). This newsgroup will include these plus all other diseases of the blood including sickle cell anemia. AltaVista and HotBot have been searched with the keywords of "blood" and "hematology" and no alternate newsgroups have been found. CHARTER: sci.med.diseases.blood Many people have some form of blood disease, either detected or not. The purpose of this newsgroup is to establish electronic media for communication between patients, scientists and any other individuals with interest in diseases of the blood. Such communications will provide quick and effective means to exchange information and knowledge, offer encouragement, and solve problems. The sci.med.diseases.blood newsgroup will target participants who are afflicted with any blood disorder. Doctors, researchers, students or anyone with interest in diseases of the blood will also be welcome. A FAQ for new users will be posted on a regular basis. No binary posts will be allowed. No advertisements will be allowed. 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 newsgroup 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. This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal".

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party. Questions about the proposed group should be directed to the proponent. Proponent: Robert Tollen <[email protected]> Mentor: Richard Miller <[email protected]> Votetaker: Jim Davis <[email protected]> RATIONALE: sci.med.diseases.blood Many different diseases affect blood. In the United States alone approximately 72,000 people have sickle cell anemia with about 2,000,000 carrying the trait. There are 20,000 hemophilia patients in the U.S. Each year, nearly 27,000 adults and more than 2,000 children in the United States learn that they have leukemia (statistics are from NIH and Cancernet web sites). There is now a listserv named MPD-SUPPORT-L which has 800+ recipients and has a daily traffic of 10 to 40 postings. All postings can be seen at http://listserv.aol.com/archives/mpd-support-l.html MPD stands for Myelo Proliferative Disorders, which are diseases of the blood. The myeloproliferative disorders include polycythemia vera (PV), chronic myelogenous leukemia, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, and essential thrombocythemia (ET). This newsgroup will include these plus all other diseases of the blood including sickle cell anemia. The WWW.DEJANEWS.COM HEALTH and FITNESS discussions have been searched with the keywords of "blood and diseases" and no alternate newsgroups were found to exist. Shared information on treatment of blood diseases is important to participants because in many instances there is a wide variety of treatments for the same disease. The grave seriousness of most questions and replies significantly outweigh any fluctuation in daily traffic. Blood diseases are so complicated that a newly diagnosed patient deserves support and facts, no matter how rare the disease. CHARTER: sci.med.diseases.blood Many people have some form of blood disease, either detected or not. The purpose of this newsgroup is to establish electronic media for communication between patients, scientists and any other individuals with interest in diseases of the blood. Such communications will provide quick and effective means to exchange information and knowledge, offer encouragement, and solve problems. The sci.med.diseases.blood newsgroup will target participants who are afflicted with any blood disorder. Doctors, researchers, students or anyone with interest in diseases of the blood will also be welcome. A FAQ for new users will be posted on a regular basis. No binary posts will be allowed. No advertisements will be allowed. END CHARTER. VOTETAKER'S NOTE: 13 ballots were received from mia-cs52-001-vty67.as.wcom.net [209.154.12.67] between 08:06 and 08:36 on 20 January, claiming to be from a variety of different addresses and, curiously, all with the real names typed entirely in lower case. sci.med.diseases.blood Final Vote Ack -- this is not a mailing list!
