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.
