I urge all mathgroupers to vote NO to the proposed newsgroup.

A moderated group will choke out any possibility of a non moderated 
newsgroup in the future. Yes, it is technically possible to have 
non-moderated newsgroup but in practice this rarely happens.

The moderated format will shrink interest and input drastically. Thes two 
reasons combined will make the newsgroup basically useless.

Vote NO!!!!
