 sci.med vs. misc.health.alternative

sci.med readers:  Where do discussions of alternative health care belong?
(This is separate from the question of whether alternative health care is
valid or not.)

It's been proposed that they belong in a new newsgroup,
misc.health.alternative.  The discussion phase in news.groups about the
creation of such a group is drawing to a close, after which we will have a
formal vote on its creation.

The argument has been made in news.groups that sci.med is already the
appropriate newsgroup for discussions of alternative health care and that
we don't need to create another separate group.

Indeed, if the vote to create misc.health.alternative fails, sci.med
*will* be the appropriate place to discuss alternative health.

For this reason, I'd like the readers of sci.med to think about where
discussions of alternative health belong, make any last arguments in
news.groups, and then watch for the misc.health.alternative CFV (Call For
Votes).  The CFV will be posted to sci.med and other newsgroups (if you
think you'll miss it, email me and I can email you a copy after it has
been posted).

In particular:

  If you think discussions of alternative health care belong in sci.med,
  you will want to vote "NO" on the creation of misc.health.alternative.

  If you think discussions of alternative health care belong in a group
  other than sci.med, and misc.health.alternative is an appropriate group,
  you will want to vote "YES" on the creation of misc.health.alternative.

  Discussions of alternative health care are going to happen somewhere.
  If you don't want them in sci.med, but don't like something about
  misc.health.alternative as proposed, SPEAK UP NOW by replying to this
  post or otherwise posting to news.groups, or by sending email to me.

Thanks!
