Newgroup line
uk.media.tv.sky:  Discussing programmes on the British Sky Broadcasting network

 	The aim of this newsgroup is to provide a forum for the
 	discussion of programmes shown on the British Sky Broadcasting
 	network.  Discussion of delivery and reception technology, for example
        dishes and decoders, is forbidden.

 	In order to assist the threading of posts in the group, each header
 	should start with a suitable abbreviation of the show to which it
        refers, in parentheses. 
         For example:
 	'(SAAB) What happened to the Wild Cards?'
 		SAAB = Space: Above and Beyond
 	'(M1) So who killed Jessica Costello?'
 		M1 = Murder One
   This will allow readers to killfile threads concerning shows in
   which they have no interest.

 	No advertising is be allowed, except for announcements of WWW
 	sites or email addresses to allow people to obtain further
	No binaries of any kind are allowed; however pointers to
 	Sky-related binaries on WWW or FTP sites are acceptable.

Votetakers Comments

A good ballot, all but one voter managed to keep the %%BALLOT symbol
which I nicked off another votetaker and the vast majority of ballots
were reasonably unmangled. There was a slight problem with acknowledgements
where there was no Subject: header - but I managed to persuade the author
of the software to alter it for me (he lives in the same house :-)).

[0]Most of the invalids have been seen before, there was a surprisingly high
number of spamblocks and I will repeat once again - I will not piddle about
removing them. If you spamblock your mail and send a ballot then it will
not get counted. Now for this times new feature :-)

[1]The References: header indicates that the ballot has been discarded as 
the References header does not match a CFV message, or a message sent
by the votetaker. Unfortunately, many mailers don't use this rather
nice feature. *sigh*

[2] Just mailing a message, "I vote for this" is not valid.
