                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                moderated group soc.support.loneliness

Summary:        Mutual help and chat for those of us who feel alone.
Proponents:     Simon Lyall <[email protected]>
                Jay D. Dyson <[email protected]>

This is a formal request for discussion on the creation of an
moderated newsgroup, soc.support.loneliness.

This is not a call for votes.  Please don't vote now.

RATIONALE: soc.support.loneliness

alt.support.loneliness was created in June of 1994 with the primary
objective of providing a newsgroup in which people could post their
experiences with loneliness, read about other people's experiences,
and share advice and comfort during their difficult times.

Unfortunately for much of 1995 the group has been pretty much
dominated by a small fringe political group. These people have been
abusive towards the often vulnerable posters in the group and have
recently attracted opposing political factions to the newsgroup to
attack them. Requests for these people to move to another (more
appropriate) newsgroup have been ignored and requests to their
providers to restrict their access have also been unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, this newsgroup has been largely overrun by a fringe
political group whose members have been abusive toward the
often-vulnerable posters of alt.support.loneliness.  More recently,
these people have attracted opposing political factions to the
newsgroup, thus further disrupting the group's primary objective.

Requests for the people to move their political discussions to more
appropriate forums have been ignored.  Notices to their providers,
which more than cited the number and severity of disruptive actions,
have gone unheeded.

While killfiles are an option for regular readers of the newsgroup,
many new posters are either discouraged, hurt or offended when their
first post draws vicious flames and ad hominem attacks from these
disruptive individuals. Many first-time posters do not return to the
group again.

A moderated loneliness group in the soc.support.* hierarchy would
ensure better distribution that an alt.* group. It would also enable
abusive and off charter posts to be filtered out, thus ensuring the
group's primary objective would not be compromised.

CHARTER: soc.support.loneliness

Loneliness is defined as "solitary, isolated, unfrequented,
companionless."  Loneliness is that feeling experienced when a person
believes no-one is interested in them (for various reasons), and as a
result, that person lacks confidence in her/himself.  Quite often,
loneliness is most keenly perceived when "everyone else seems to be
having fun / friends / relationships" with the exception of one's
self.

soc.support.loneliness is intended to provide a safe area in which
people may post about their experiences with loneliness, read about
other people's experiences, offer advice, and comfort one another.

Relevant Informational postings and FAQs may also be posted.

Flames, offensive or off-topic postings, advertisements, abusive or ad
hominem attacks may not be posted to soc.support.loneliness.  There
are many other newsgroups where such posts are welcomed.  Users who
wish to post messages of such content will be directed to those
forums.

Neither commercial advertisements or "personal ads" are not welcome on
soc.support.loneliness.

Moderation Policy:

The duty of the designated moderators is to ensure that all posts to
soc.support.loneliness fall within the accepted parameters for
discussion as defined by the newsgroup's charter.  An automated script
will be used to share postings among the newsgroup's moderators.
Posts which are rejected will be returned to the poster with a reason
for the rejection.  Posts may be edited to remove excessive
attribution and/or poor formatting.  The moderator is required to make
note when this is done. User's signatures may also be trimmed, but the
moderator is not required to note when this is done.

Anonymous posts are welcome in soc.support.loneliness.

If the number of moderators fall below three, volunteers will be
solicited by the current moderators in consultation with the newsgroup
participants. An automatic script will be used to share postings among
the moderators.

Moderators are expected to process articles within 24 to 48 hours of
receipt.  Moderators who will be temporarily unavailable for longer
than one week should notify the newsgroup and the other moderators so
that their names may be removed from the list of active moderators for
the duration.

New moderators must have both the majority approval of soc.support.
loneliness participants and unanimous approval of all existing
moderators.  A moderator may be relieved of her/his position by
majority approval of the newsgroup participants and/or unanimous
approval of the other moderators.  Upon removal, the newsgroup will be
solicited for a replacement moderator.

In the event of an unresolvable controversy amongst the moderators,
all moderators will submit to binding arbitration by moderators-advice
at UUNET.

END CHARTER.

HOW TO VOTE:

Send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are not votes) to:

      [email protected]

Replying to this article should work, but check the address before you mail
your vote.  Your mail message must contain one and only one of the following
vote statements for each group:

      I vote YES on soc.support.loneliness moderated
      I vote NO on soc.support.loneliness moderated

Names are required for this vote.  The counting software will extract your name
from the mail message if your mailer is properly configured; if your mail
software does not indicate your name, you must include the following statement:

     Voter name:  Your name here

You can also vote ABSTAIN or CANCEL.  These votes are not counted in the
results, and CANCEL removes your name from the vote listing in the result.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may mean that
your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an acknowledgment of
your vote within three days contact the votetaker about the problem.  IT'S YOUR

disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute this CFV;

or edited copies of this CFV is prohibited, and votes from such sources will be
removed from the final vote total.

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One person, one vote.  Votes must be
mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous, forwarded or proxy
votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW servers are considered to be
anonymous votes.
