I also don't see it, but I suspect that it is getting filtered because
I have Agent configured to skip crossposts. That means that if the
message has been retrieved in one group it will be skipped in any
subsequent groups it appears in. In this case I see it in news.groups,
but, because rec.woodworking is later in the subscribed groups list,
it is skipped here.
Either way I saw it and am casting my "no" vote.
I've been lurking here for a few months and I see how everything here
works. However, I have one concern with the new group. If this
rec.woodworking.all-ages actually happens.. will rec.woodworking
become rec.woodworking.*? And if so, won't we be flooded with cross
posts from people who just want an answer about some basic thing and
are trying to post to as many groups as possible? I see that this
happens all the time in that kind of group (look at rec.antiques for
example.) Maybe this is an out of place post, or im misunderstanding
or or something, so if this is wrong, I apologize in advance
(braces himself for fire)
I think that's certainly a possibility. I had a very short private
exchange with one of the proponents of the new group where I encouraged
them to pursue the moderated group with a better set of moderators. I
likely would have voted yes if that had gone to a vote. The current
proposal makes no sense to me, being unmoderated, and I don't
understand what color the sky is in the proponents' world.
Not at all. This is a great place to discuss the issue.

Ayup, very likely. Also likely that somebody with an idea will cross-post
to both groups as well (or worse, multi-post, resulting in duplicate,
redundant messages taking up additional space).
This is one of the reasons rec.ww has never split, there has yet been no
clear identification of a split hierarchy that would not result in multiple
posts, dilution of effectiveness, or efficiency of reading.
Seems like you have a pretty good grasp of potential consequences.

IIRC from the discussion leading to r.c.t's creation, rec.ww is kind of
grandfathered into its current position in the hierarchy. At some point,
the name space cabal realized there was a large proliferation of rec.*
groups and started further segregating them by interest, thus the
rec.crafts.* hieararchy. Thus when the turners' group was started, it was
placed in the crafts hierarchy to meet the new approach to classifying
groups. rec.woodworking retained its original position because to change
that would have had severe consequences in numerous places, for example, in
the archives, etc.
Don't think so. Anybody else have better memory retention than me on

I recall the same from when I started lurking on the wreck. See this
post by one of the proponents.
