Followup-To: poster Date: 1 Apr 1996 15:38:28 -0600 Organization: Usenet Fact Police (Undercover) Lines: 28 Message-ID: <email@example.com> NNTP-Posting-Host: solutions.solon.com With the recent defeat of the Communications Decency Act, it's clear it's about time we tried to clean house a little. I refer, of course, to the self-appointed "moderator" of news.announce. newusers, the man who calls himself "Tail". This derogatory, misogynistic nomer is just an example; he is decieptful in the extreme! He portrays himself as a long-standing member of the WWW community, when in fact he only got his account !last year!. We need someone with experience, judgement, and a responsible attitude! "Tail" has approved newsgroups such as comp.lang.ada, comp.lang.c.moderated, and comp.os.linux.misc - all indecent, disgusting, FILTH! We don't need that kind of shit on the WWW, where we want to have a clean environment for our children. TAIL MUST BE REPLACED!!! An obvious candidate for his replacement would be David Lawrence, one of the founders of UUNET Communications, and a long-time citizen of the Net community. David has shown himself, time and time again, to be a supportive and positive member of the community. But he must be nominated! Please make sure to post an RFD naming David Lawrence the new moderator of news.groups! His email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org", and you can email him in support of his candidness! -- Peter Seebach - email@example.com - Copyright 1996 Peter Seebach.
