                          Request for Discussion

Proposed Newsgroups: sci.techniques.mass-spec (moderated)

This is a request for discussion (RFD) for the creation of
sci.techniques.mass-spec.  The discussion will last 21-30 days from
today's date.  If enough interest is shown during
this period, a formal call for votes (CFV) will be issued.


Rationale
     Mass spectrometry is becoming increasingly more common.  The
     American Society for Mass Spectrometry has approximately 3700
     members, and membership is increasing by more than 5% each year.
     The number of papers presented at the annual conference shows a
     similar trend.  In addition, mass spectrometry is being used more
     often by those whose primary expertise is in other fields.  New
     techniques are being developed, and existing techniques are
     becoming more widespread.  The goal of the proposed newsgroup is
     to provide a place for the discussion of all areas of mass
     spectrometry.

Charter
     Sci.techniques.mass-spec will be open to discussion of all areas
     of mass spectrometry.  Topics may include, but are not limited
     to:
          Ionization
          Mass analysis
          Mechanisms
          Hyphenated techniques
          Troubleshooting

     Short commercial announcements will be allowed, but the newsgroup
     is not meant to be a substitute for the normal announcements, and
     long, detailed descriptions of new or improved equipment should
     not be submitted.  To quote from the Moderator's Handbook, the policy
     should be, "Information, not promotion."

     Similarly, the newsgroup is not a substitute for peer-reviewed journals.

Moderator:  David Bostwick <[email protected]>


Procedure
     Please post responses to news.groups.  The followup feature of
     most newsreaders should do this automatically.  Discussion of the
     merits of the proposed group should not be posted to any group
     except news.groups.

     Comments for or against the proposed group will not count as
     votes.  The voting will be announced by a CFV after the
     discussion period.


Distribution
     This RFD is being cross-posted to the following groups:
	  news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, sci.bio, sci.chem,
	  sci.chem.electrochem, sci.chem.labware, sci.chem.organomet,
	  sci.engr.chem, sci.materials, sci.physics, sci.polymers,
	  and sci.techniques.spectroscopy.

     This RFD is also being sent to the mass spectrometry local
     discussion group mailing list at <[email protected]>,

HOW TO VOTE

Send MAIL to:   [email protected]
Just replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

It would be apprciated by the votetaker if you did NOT forward the entire
CFV back; this mail is archived and I really don't need several hundred
copies of the CFV on my system.

Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:
      I vote YES on sci.techniques.mass-spec
      I vote NO on sci.techniques.mass-spec

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome.
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.
It is your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

Only one vote per person, no more than one vote per account.  Addresses and
votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.
