RATIONALE: rec.crafts.***stamps

The craft of ***stamping has enjoyed a great increase in interest and
popularity in the last several years. People of all ages and abilities
are able to enjoy the craft of ***stamping and have a desire to
meet together to discuss their craft, techniques, vendors, sources of
supplies, arrange swaps, and improve their knowledge of their craft.

There is currently no newsgroup to discuss the craft of ***stamping.
A ***stamp listserv does exist but due to the large volume of mail
(up to 150+ messages a day and 350+ subscribers), many members have
inquired about the establishment of a Usenet Newsgroup. This newsgroup
would not replace the mailing list but would be a compliment to it and
enable many more ***stamp crafters to have a place to discuss their
craft.

CHARTER: rec.crafts.***stamps

The purpose of the newsgroup is to facilitate open discussion of the
craft of ***stamping. It will provide a global forum to discuss
topics concerning ***stamping, its techniques, vendors, sources of
supplies, and to arrange swaps.

The group will be unmoderated.

Postings from vendors advertising their products and sales are welcome
provided they announce the word vendor in the subject line of their
posting.

END CHARTER.
