REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

This is a request for discussion of a new newsgroup, tentative proposed title
"rec.food.healthy".  The purpose of this newsgroup will be to discuss food,
food preparation, eating habits, etc., (including social, medical, and
psychological aspects, etc.) as it relates to the quality and longevity of
human life.

"Scientific" discussion is particularly encouraged.  (Perhaps "sci.food", or
"sci.food.healthy" would make better names.)

Though vegetarianism and healthy eating are somewhat associated, this
newsgroup is explicitly *not* for the discussion of the morality or immorality
of eating meat and other animal products (nor the discussion of abortion).
These topics are adequately covered in rec.food.veg and rec.food.cooking.

Thank you,
Mike Coleman

CALL FOR VOTES: sci.med.nutrition

This is a call for votes for proposed newsgroup "sci.med.nutrition"
(originally titled "rec.food.healthy").

The RFD was published approximately two months ago, and the brief discussion
consisted of suggestions for an appropriate name for the group and simple
positive comments such as "Let's do it."

VOTING

To place a vote either for or against the creation of the
sci.med.nutrition newsgroup, send a mail-message to
[email protected]
(...!mit-athena!pit-manager.mit.edu!mail-server, if your site does not
understand domain-style addresses) with one of these two lines
(omitting the quotation marks) in the subject or body of your message:

	"vote sci.med.nutrition yes"
	"vote sci.med.nutrition no"

The first will register a vote FOR the creation of the newsgroup, and
the second will register a vote AGAINST it.

The vote-counting service is being provided by Jonathan Kamens
<[email protected]>.  DO NOT send your votes to him directly, or to
the authors of this posting, and DO NOT post votes to a newsgroup.
Posted votes, or votes mailed to the incorrect address, will be
ignored.

Your vote will be acknowledged within 24 hours, unless the return
address in your mail is invalid.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgement of your vote, you can write to
[email protected] to ask whether or not it was received.

All votes must be received by Aug 15, 1992.

As per the rules, if there are more than 100 yes votes than no votes
by that date AND at least 2/3 of the total number of valid votes
received are yes votes, the newsgroup will be created.

CHARTER

The purpose of this newsgroup will be to discuss food, food preparation,
eating habits, etc., (including medical, psychological, and social aspects) as
it relates to the quality and longevity of human life.

Though vegetarianism and healthy eating are somewhat associated, this

                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
     moderated group sci.med.nutrition (moderates existing group)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on moderation  of an
existing unmoderated newsgroup, sci.med.nutrition

Follow-ups are directed to news.groups - please honor.

Newsgroups line:
sci.med.nutrition       Physiological impacts of diet. (Moderated)

RATIONALE:

Right now, there are a significant number of posts on sci.med.nutrition
that are either sales pitches for nutritional products or cross-posted
arguments over the ethics of eating meat. The ethical considerations
for eating meat are on topic themes for talk.politics.animals and
rec.food.veg - they are not on topic for sci.med.nutrition. Sales pitches
are not welcome in sci groups. The on topic discussions have become
the minority in the last year, and as a result many regular contributors
have left the newsgroup.

The action of moderating sci.med.nutrition has been chosen to change
the character, but not the goals, of the newsgroup, in such a way that
only on topic discussion will be allowed.

CHARTER: sci.med.nutrition

The scope of the discussion will include questions about nutrition,
health, nutritional treatments of illness, nutritional content of
various foods. Questions about the ethical considerations of eating
any food are specifically not allowed.

The general "netiquette" FAQs posted in news.announce.newusers and
news.answers apply to sci.med.nutrition.  Excessive flaming is not
tolerated

END CHARTER.

MODERATION:

Volunteers for the job of moderator:

As requested by the Usenet moderators, I have assembled a short
list of persons who have volunteered to moderate the new version
of sci.med.nutrition.  This does not in any way prevent others
from volunteering for the job of moderator at any time during the
discussion period.  I have given each volunteer his own section,
and listed the questions asked prior to each answer.
-------------------  Start of volunteer section --------------------

From: [email protected] (Daniel Markham)

>What are your qualifications
1. I'm an educated layman in the field of nutrition but a highly
educated computer consultant in real-life.

>How would you moderate?
2. 	A. Get rid of MLM bozos
	B. Dsicourage political chit-chat
	C. Encourage a free mix between laymen and the scientific community

>Why would you be a good moderator?
3. I'd be a good moderator because I'm stupid enough to let the simple
questions through, humble enough to listen to the experts, and
assinine enough to tell the salesmen to buzz off. Besides, it would be
fun (I think)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

From: [email protected] (Mark Thorson)

>What are your qualifications?
1.  bachelor's degree, neurobiology, UC-Berkeley, 1978

>How would you moderate?
2.  block all dishonest questions, i.e. where a "question" is
    intended to elicit or convey a commercial advertisement
    block all factoids transmitting information that cannot
    be supported by the scientific literature

>Why would you be a good moderator?
3.  I would reduce the bandwidth of this newsgroup by a factor
    of ten

------------------------------------------------------------------------

From: [email protected] (Tim Triche, Jr.)

>1. Why do you want to moderate?
To get this group hard core again.  To toss out the irrelevant crap.

>2. What, if any, are your qualifications?
Ummmm...none.  Actually, I edit the FAQ, if that's a qualification.

>3. _How_ would you moderate?
Nix all the ads and off-topic crossposts, and let everything else in.  I
believe a mail pipe could be installed, no?  Ask the other groups how they
go about piping the message flow to the group.

------------------------- End of volunteer section ---------------------

END MODERATION.

PROCEDURE:

Posting of this RFD initiates a discussion period of at least 21 days.
Discussion about the proposed newsgroup will take place on
news.groups ONLY, which is a newsgroup dedicated to the discussion
of new newsgroups, and anyone interested is encouraged to
participate.

Also note that under the Usenet guidelines:

        The RFD discussion period will last for between 21 and 30
        days.

        The discussion will be followed by a CFV (Call for Votes).

        The vote will be run by a neutral third party, probably the
        Usenet Volunteer Votetakers (UVV)

This message is *not* a Call For Votes (CFV) - do not try to vote:

        before the CFV is posted, or
        by posting anything anywhere, or
        by sending e-mail to anyone but the votetaker.

The voting procedure will be clearly described in the CFV when the time
to vote arrives.  Now is NOT the time to vote.

DISTRIBUTION:

The complete official messages - RFD, CFV and vote results - will be
posted to these newsgroups:

news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, sci.med.nutrition
