Re: Vote NO!!!!
MathGroupers: I clearly strongly disagree with Andrew's request below. I do not believe that the moderated mailing list has the effect to "shrink interest and input drastically" and this will not occur with a moderated newsgroup either. I suspect the exact opposite will occur. Just as I have with the mailing list, I will work very hard to make the Mathematica newsgroup very useful and very fairly moderated. Please vote YES. Thank you.
