Nothing about all-ages, tho.

They appear to be legit. This can be a good thing. If Susan and Vito ever really submit a multiple group reorganization, the rebuttle from NAN would be "There's already an alt.* group like that". If the soft wreck proponents were behind these three new groups, the charters would probably be much more restrictive and preachy. If the kook(s) was/were behind them, there would probably be a more ridiculous/crude element to the charters.
Not to worry. Propagation of alt.* groups is poor, compared to Big-8 groups.

There's a "Charles Sheller" listing in the vote result for soc.religion.satanism and rec.woodworking.all-ages. Voted yes on both.

Like I said..someone following the discussion. He appears to favor the creation of new groups :-) I still think if it was meant to be a troll attack, there would have at least been some kind of an announcement to get a rise. Let it play out for a while before slamming the guy. The alt.* hierarchy is unmanaged; anyone with proper access and skill may create new groups.
If the news.groups kook was able to send out control messages, he probably would have put them in rec.* instead of alt.*.

None of the new alt.* groups were hijacked, because they were never under any discussion. The only proposed woodworking group was rec.woodworking.all-ages, that was in rec.* not alt.*, and there was no alt.* version of all-ages created. You should be careful what you accuse people of without proof.

Thanks for the heads up. They appear to have been legitimately created by the admin of a small NSP..probably someone following the discussion who wanted to beat Susan and Vito to the punch, and shoot down their chances for proposing a reorganization of rec.woodworking. I don't see any connection to the soft wreck proponents. The charters are too loose, and there is no mention of "decency" or foul language. The alt.* hierarchy does not require a vote, unlike the Big-8.
