I didn't vote because it IS a free country and they have the right to start
a news group. If they try to alter rec.woodworking, I will definitely vote,
and solicit opposing votes from as many people as I can find.

Then why in the Seven Bouncing Hells are you here, if you're got
your own group?
Eagles can soar ... but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
So what's the problem it passed. Big deal. Does that mean everyone
that knows anything about woodworking will leave this group and go over
to the new one - Not Likely.
I'm relatively new to woodworking less than 2 years since I retired and
although I have been messing with computers for over 20 years I have
never had much need or use for newsgroups over those years. I
subscribed to this one and a wine making one about 6 months ago. I will
likely also subscribe to the new one at least for a while. If it proves
useless I will dump it.
I joined this one because I know there are a lot of people out there
with a lot of information they are willing to share and I have a lot to
learn. Occasionally a topic will come up when I can help, I spent
nearly 30 years in a Nuclear plant as an Industrial Electrician and
Electronics technician. I took up woodworking when I retired and it is
a great way to keep busy and the mind active.
I've found my newsreader - outlook express only downloads the headers so
if I see an OT post that doesn't interest me I use the most important
tool in my arsenal - my brain. OT political - likely some zealot who
figures if we don't agree with him we are lost - pass on to the next
thread. Coarse language - big deal- As a Christian I try not to use it,
occasionally I do, but I have realized that if you do it's not my
problem so it doesn't really bother me.
Basicily what I am saying is a new news group great. Hopefully there
will be new people we can learn from or help if not it will likely die a
slow death, why worry about it.

Vote fraud? Aw, no way!
