	I have already unaliased the unix-pc.* groups on my machine. (I feed
nobody.)  I would request that those who keep unix-pc.* around to please
also unalias it, especially those sites running B-news.  I have no objection
to those who so desire keeping it around, but I would rather not have
systems shoehorning "unix on a pc" artilces from there (where I can read or
ignore as I desire) into the comp.sys.3b1 group. where I cannot see any
reason for the mistaken posting to occur.

	Since I am a leaf node, I'll probably keep the groups in my active
file for a while to see if there IS any traffic once the aliasing stops
muddying the waters, but there will be no POSTINGS in those groups from this

	Please, let us not start a flame war over something like this.
