The following is a redirected message about the election for or against the
of a neo-Nazi newsgroup. Follow the advices for how to vote, and please vote NO
allready today, if that is your opinion.
"Just yesterday B'nai B'rith's annual report (Canada) on hate and racism
located the net as the one source of exploding and uncontrollable
dissemination of hate mail. I feel strongly that every NO vote on the
formation of a neo-Nazi newsgroup is a public and civilized blow against a
pernicious, evil movement. Please vote to affirm society's rejection of
neo-Nazis. Please distribute the following message as you deem appropriate.
A group of neo-nazis are trying to form a newsgroup on Usenet called
rec.music.white-power, so that they can get their message of hate out to
young people using the Internet. Newsgroups are public discussion areas on
the Internet and their formation requires enough support from the Internet
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU HAS ONE VOTE when it comes to creating a new Usenet
group. I hope you will vote NO and thereby tell these Nazis you don't want
their stuff on the net. Below is the procedure, please repost my plea and get
the NO vote out. This is my personal opinion. If you want to see the
official call for votes, you can read in news.group or ask me for a copy of
the notice calling for votes.
Do not vote twice - that would constitute voting fraud.
HOW TO VOTE:
Send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are invalid) to:
This is an impartial, third-party vote taker.
Do not REPLY to THIS message, if you are trying to vote. Please do not
assume that just replying to this message will work. Check the address before
you mail your vote. Your mail message should contain only one statement:
I vote NO on rec.music.white-power
I REALLY HOPE YOU VOTE NO!
Vote counting is automated. Failure to follow these directions may mean that
your vote does not get counted. If you do not receive an acknowledgment of
your vote within three days contact the votetaker about the problem. It's
your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.
Here's what Canada's George Burdi, of the neo-Nazi Heritage Front, had to say
about this vote, on February 21, on his RESISTANCE mailing list:
"There is a call for votes coming on rec.music.white-power in
the next week or so, and you will be notified in a
special issue of RREN exactly what to do. FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER. Let me be perfectly blunt and
state that we have more than enough "net-nazis" to win this
thing hands-down. But every one of you must vote YES!
And just voting yes means nothing unless you do it properly
