Subject: Send this out to as many people as possible!!! A.S.A.P. (fwd)


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 discussions on the Internet and their formation
requires enough support from the Internet community.

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US HAS ONE VOTE when it comes to creating a new
Usenet group.  I hope you will vote NO and thereby tell these NAZIS we
don't want their stuff on the net. Below is the procedure, please repost
this plea and get the NO vote out.  If you want to see the official call
for votes, you can try on "news.group".

     DO NOT VOTE TWICE - that would constitute voting fraud.

     HOW TO VOTE:

     Send e-mail (posts to newsgroups are invalid) to:

       music-vote at sub-rosa.com

    This is an impartial, third party vote taker.
     Please check the address before you mail your vote. Your mail
     message,  to be accepted by the counting computer,  must
     contain only the following statement with no signature:

        I vote NO on rec.music.white-power

     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 handsdown. But every
one of you must vote YES!  And just voting yes means nothing unless
you do it properly.  So you have   been forewarned. The instructions
are coming to your email  box soon, and they are not complicated.
Just follow them as told, and we will have a WP music newsgroup
finally!"

If Mr. Burdi's confidence disturbs you, please give this letter the
widest possible distribution, and help us deliver the largest NO vote
in the history of the UseNet.
