Someone (Dana?) mentioned in an article that the consensus on the list
was to go with a .fan group, but I guess I didn't see those messages
(been reallyreally busy lately and have been skimming/deleting all
mailing list mail). 'Cuz if I had seen those messages, I would've
mentioned that I really think the group should go in the*
hierarchy... although I think most ISPs will carry any group (I know
we've got loads of joke alt groups here at, it's been my
experience that .edu sites have better things to use their disk space
for, and tend not to carry those groups (based on my small sample of 3
newsservers at different universities).

Anyways... I vote for changing the group name to
Name: Dave Huang | Mammal, mammal / their names are called /
INet: | they raise a paw / the bat, the cat /
FurryMUCK: Dahan | dolphin and dog / koala bear and hog -- TMBG
Dahan: Hani G Y+C 19 Y++ L+++ W- C++ T++ A+ E+ S++ V++ F- Q+++ P+ B+ PA+ PL++
