HELP FIGHT THE UK USENET COMMITTEE ----------------------------------

This is just to let people know of the current campaign for a NO vote in the vote of confidence concerning the UK Usenet Committee.

The vote is expected to begin later this month. ANYONE can vote, you don't have to be in the UK.

Please visit the No Confidence website, which is at:


A quote from that site:

"A victory for NO in the coming Vote of Confidence will almost certainly lead all the elected members to resign. There will then be new elections to all 9 elected posts. The No Confidence campaign will cease to exist at its moment of victory, so obviously it will not be fielding candidates. It does not seek to be an 'alternative cabal'. However, we do seek to take part in a movement of community activism, and we see this vote as an important way to help create such a movement. We are not 'vote heads', but we relish the chance to use the voting system in a way for which it was NOT designed: namely, to stick one on the arrogant bullies who sit on the Committee. If the result is NO, hopefully the new Committee will be in a weaker position relative to the community than the present one is. For two reasons: first, the new members will know that they can face a confidence vote if they go too far; and second, the community will have greater confidence in keeping members in line."
