FORMAL votes apply ONLY to the "big 7", i.e.
"comp, misc, news, rec, sci, soc, talk".
"unix-pc" isn't part of the formal UseNet,
it's just using the same facilities, just
like "biz, bionet, vmsnet, alt, gnu, ...".
There was substantial difference of opinion
among the members of "unix-pc" as to its
eventual demise - I'm merely providing for
the (admittedly minority) concerns of those
who felt that it should remain.
Also I suppose that if the "Unix-on-a-PC"
crowd started using it, the eventual outcome
might be to the common good, since it might
lead to a lessening dependence on the evil
drug msdos 8^)...
