Usenet doesn't work that way. To create a new newsgroup would require
weeks of polling the Usenet community to see if there is sufficient
With the other related newsgroups already in place, I question whether
interest could be found. Does compuserve provide access to Usenet
Otherwise, I can gateway some of this traffic through our mailing list
a way to post articles from the mailing list to the Usenet community.
Remember, Usenet works through the cooperation of the each Usenet node to
forward that various articles from each newsgroup. There is no central
which holds and manages a particular newsgroup (though there are news
moderators which can restrict the flow of articles into a newsgroup).
new newsgroup could conceivable result in considerable network (or phone)
which each site would pay for, any attempt to create a new group would
the approval of many people.
Personally, I think we should wait and see if we have so much traffic to
a new newsgroup. At this point, how many of us can even read the groups
exist? Of course, a new group would be a way to announce to the world
Theosophy is here. I've been too busy to follow the Usenet groups to know
that announcement has already been made.
