I thought a discussion about moderating soc.history was underway, but then
it seems to have vanished almost immediately....

Regarding my ideas on moderation posted during that discussion, I certainly
did not want to discourage anyone from continuing this process but only to
make some suggestion that may or may not be workable.  So, let me take the
plunge and move this into appropriate channels.

Anyway, let's get back to the big issue.  Who is willing to moderate
soc.history and what will be the procedure?

For those reading this on news.groups who are not familiar with the
situation, the S/N ratio of soc.history has become appallingly low and
numerous complaints have been made.  Nationalistic political arguments
dominate the group; the biggest volume "discussions" are concerning the
existence or lack thereof of the Jewish Holocaust in WWII, and arguments
about who did what early in this century between Turks and Armenians
(and sometimes Greeks).  The issue for me is not so much that these 
discussions go on, but that they generate huge volume (literally making
up the majority of the group) and are endlessly repetitive.

So we have a problem.  Solutions are welcome -- the most obvious seems
to be some sort of moderation.  Some decision on who should moderate
should be made before this discussion can really continue.

	REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION: SOC.HISTORY.MODERATED

Title: soc.history.moderated

This will be a moderated group.

Moderators: Volunteers are very much still encouraged. Preliminary names include
the following:

			Todd McComb
			Richard Miller
			Laura Mollett (Art History)
		 	Jason Esser (BA History Univ. Minnesota)
			myself (Mike Traynor)

More help would be appreciated.

Charter: The group will allow a free-flowing discussion of historical events
and trends of _general_ intrest to the Usenet history devotees.  If desired
later, this group will allow for subgroup formation into seperate historical
periods and topics.  

The moderator will have broad powers to determine what topics are of general
interest.  A non-exclusive list of post characteristics the moderator can
use to determine the acceptance or rejection of a post for general posting
in the group are:

		o ad-hominem attacks
		o flames
		o pathological cross-postings for a given posts
		  (for example, cross-postings to/from groups that
		   bear little relation to the nature of the post)
        	o use of inappropriate vulgarisms in a post
		o general tastlessness in a post

		o historical topics of questionable validity
		o rejections of well-established historical events
		  using references of dubious validity

		(These last two are to be used only when overwhelming
		 evidence confirms either the dubious nature of the
		 "history" in the post or the dubious nature of the
		  sources countering well-established history.  In
		  either case, the moderator evaluating the post would
		  be advised to consult an historian with accreditations
		  if she or he is unsure.)	

If the moderator so desires, she/he will respond to a rejected post stating
the reasons for rejection, and if she/he so desires, suggesting modifications
that will allow a modified post into the group.

Lively, animated discussions on historical events or topics where there is
genuine controversy, or where there is general consensus, are encouraged.
Requests for information are also encouraged.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
			END OF CHARTER

Bluntly, I have very little experience in this, so any constructive suggestions
or helpful comments on this proto-charter are encouraged.  Volunteers for 
moderation are also encouraged.
