I would have to agree with Ron here, and had been planning the very
thought of just such a disclaimer. (My planned story, as yet no title,
was planned as a romance at a time when what was left of Mobius was being
I guess that even under the most dire of circumstances, I believe in
hope, which is why I really liked the SatAM (now SunAM) StH, because it
*was* a positive theme within a grim world...

That is a very good idea, though I'd have to say Bookshire's WWW story
page does just that!

I guess you don't know what did lead to the creation of the Sonic list
then. For the record, I'll explain:
During the time I was proposing a.f.s-h in alt.config, a teenager going
by the handle "Tom Servo", who was already notorious for bogus newsgroup
creations, decided to proclain (and then proceeded to) that he will
create every newsgroup proposed, whether it went through discussion or
not, for a few weeks. Deciding not to risk it, I decided to put a.f.s-h
on hold until it blew over. (It wasn't until sometime in February I
started it back up again, after bowing out in mid-December of last year...)
Thinking I had failed to get support (the opposite was true), Erich
Schulman (sp?), et al, started work on the mailing list. Just the fact I
put a.f.s-h on hold, because I did not want it tagged as "bogus" (which
anything created by "Tom Servo" would have been automaticly been tagged
as), I'm partly responsible for this mailing list's creation. Both have
the same goals, but the mailing list has been more successful than the
newsgroup, which saddens me. :(
