		New Group Proposal
	I propose that we begin discussion about a new 
mainstream newsgroup named sci.dent. It will be unmoderated
and has as its main objective to allow internet users (dentists,
dental students, researchers, and patients) the opportunity
to discuss Dentistry and any dental related issues. Included in 
this forum would be the issues of dental research, patient/dentist
interaction, new technology in dentistry, infection control
discussion/answers, legislation issues in dentistry, question
and answers, medico-legal issues, and any other related dentistry
discussion.

The hope I have in proposing this new newsgroup is purely one
of opening up lines of communication between patients/dentists/
researchers/dental students. This would allow more people to
have a forum for discussing their specific concerns in this
area. I appreciate any and all comments, and support in this
beginning on the Internet for the dental community and its
patients.

Thank you for your time,
--

This is a formal Call For Votes for the formation of a new Usenet 
newsgroup, sci.med.dentistry, as described below. The RFD for this 
group was originated by Alec Ellsworth  ([email protected]) 
and was posted in news.announce.newgroups on November 10, 1992. 
Discussion in news.groups and sci.med has been generally favorable 
(although light) except for the originally proposed name sci.dent. 
No objections to the creation of the group or its charter have 
been expressed.
 
The newsgroup will be constituted as follows:
 
sci.med.dentistry                Discussion of dentally related topics
(unmoderated)
 
 
CHARTER: 
 
The main objective  of sci.med.dentistry is to allow internet users 
(dentists, dental students, researchers, and patients) the opportunity
to discuss Dentistry and any dental related issues. Included in 
this forum would be the issues of dental research, patient/dentist
interaction, new technology in dentistry, infection control
discussion/answers, legislation issues in dentistry, question
and answers, medico-legal issues, and any other related dentistry
discussion.
 
VOTE ADDRESS:
 
All votes for or against the formation of this newsgroup 
sci.med.dentistry should be sent to [email protected]
 
VOTE FORMAT:
 
Votes should carry a subject line confirming the voter's intent, 
either "I vote yes on sci.med.dentistry" or "I vote no on 
sci.med.dentistry" as appropriate.  Variations in subject line 
format will be accepted as long as the intent is clearly expressed. 
If the vote carries an empty subject line the message 
body will be inspected for confirmation of voting intent.
 
VOTES SENT AS REPLIES TO THE CFV:
 
Votes sent as replies to the originator of this CFV 
([email protected]) will be counted as 
"yes" or "no" votes according to their subject line or message body.
 
AMBIGUOUS VOTE RESOLUTION:
 
Ambigous votes -- those whose subject lines do not make clear the 
voter's intent, or whose subject line clashes with the vote address --  
will, where possible,  be returned to their senders for clarification. 
Ambiguous votes which cannot be returned to their senders or for 
which no clarification is provided will be identified in vote 
mass acknowledgements and in the final vote tally.
 
VOTING PERIOD:
 
Votes will be collected for a period beginning when this CFV 
is approved for publication in news.announce.newgroups and 
ending at 23:59 GMT on Sunday,  January 10, 1993. Votes 
arriving at the voting address after the expiration of the 
voting will be discarded.
 
You may change your vote at any time before the expiry of the 
voting period by simply submitting a new vote. The last vote 
to be cast by any given individual  before the end of the voting 
period will be counted; earlier votes cast by that individual will be 
discarded.
 
And remember, it's one person, one vote.
 
Thank You All
