This is a call for votes from the users of this newsgroup about the current
interest in having it moderated.  If the vote passes the charter will be
modified to include the following paragraph:

The moderation policy of Plant-ed will be based on a liberal interpretation
of the newsgroup charter, i.e. anything marginally suitable will be
accepted.  Mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and similar
postings not germane to the newsgroup charter will be deleted without
comment.  Use of the newsgroup for commercial purposes is prohibited.  The
moderators of this newsgroup will be Jonathan Monroe or Susan Singer, or
his/her designee.

If you would like to express your opinion on this, please vote on the
following  question by marking an X in the yes or no lines in the subject
line of this message and returning it to me at monroejd at

***Should this newsgroup be moderated?***

I will close the voting on July 4, 1997.  Thanks.
