PROPOSAL: alt.binaries.pictures.watersports

Post by Peter Watkins » Fri, 12 Jul 1996 04:00:00


Hi,

  Given that there is no place to post pictures of watersports on
usenet at present i am suggesting that
alt.binaries.pictures.watersports is created.

Before  I put forward my suggestion to the alt.config newsgroup  I
thought i would canvass opinions from the various watersport related
newsgroups.

It might help if you were to email me direct if you have any really
crucial suggestions because there are a lot of watersport newsgroups
so i may not have a chance to read them all.

This message is being posted to

alt.sailing.asa

As a user of rec.windsurfing and alt.surfing, I support the
creation of this binary group.

Please note that you sent the message to alt.surf, which is
not a valid newsgroup...please resend your proposal to alt.surfing,
where I am sure that you will generate significant support, as well.

PROPOSAL: alt.binaries.pictures.watersports

Hi,

 After posting the original message i've received a considerable
amount of support by email and followups in the newsgroups.
 A *lot* of people have also imformed me that the original title i
suggested alt.binaries.pictures.watersports may attract a fair number
of pictures of a completely unrelated activity that one poster said
"would not be suitable for family entertainment".
 Therefore i'll propose to alt.config that the newsgroup is titled
alt.binaries.pictures.sports.water . The sys Admins who post to
alt.config will comment on whether the title is appropriate in any
case.

 Basically now i'll wait a few more days before a posting a final
message to all the watersport newsgroups to inform everyone that i'm
about to post to alt.config, so anyone who is interested can see what
the sys admins think of the proposal.

 cheers,

Peter Watkinson
