Pass this on!!!!!
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: email@example.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.
