                     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)
               unmoderated group

Newsgroups line:   Lyrics, albums, performers, enjoyment of the 

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 18 Mar 1996.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party. Please address any
questions about the proposal to the proponent.

Proponent: Milton John Kleim, Jr 
Votetaker: Michael Handler 


There is no appropriate newsgroup for discussion of White Power music, a
phenomenon which is international in scope.  Persons who have an interest
in this genre of music have no appropriate venue on USENET in which to
discuss this controversial topic.  Other groups' topics are too
dissimilar, and many of their participants are in no way receptive of
posts about this heated topic.  Some discussion of White Power music
occurs on alt.skinheads and alt.politics.white-power, but is inappropriate
there due to the former's mostly lifestyle-oriented matters, and the
latter's largely political nature. will prevent the
"intrusion" of fans into other, more vaguely-defined, newsgroups, where
they will not be welcomed.  Discussions would necessarily be free and
open, due to the topic's controversial nature.  This group should be
unmoderated because a moderator could exercise undue control over one
viewpoint's postings.


All issues relating to the genre known as White Power music, since it's
inception until the present, covering all languages and nationalities of
performers, and all themes of pieces. is an unmoderated newsgroup for the entertaining
and enlightening discussion of revolutionary new forms of rock, country,
and other sub-genres having racist/nationalist themes.  Both supporters
and opponents will find the group educational and intriguing.

Potential topics will relate to the origin, development, and
dissemination of White Power music; to the artistic composition and
performance of the music; and to the personal opinions and perceptions of
those who enjoy particular bands and performers, and pieces.

must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI

persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute

to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise
edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.
