- --------------------------------

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party member of UKVoting.
UKVoting is a group of independent votetakers who count votes on

following URL:

The UKVoting web pages can be found at <http://www.ukvoting.org.uk/>

4.  Rationale and Charter from the CFV
- --------------------------------------

RATIONALE: uk.local.bath

For discussion of issues relating to the City of Bath, and the
surrounding areas covered by BANES (Bath & North East Somerset) Local
Authority.  There is currently no specific group for Bath.
uk.local.somerset covers a large geographical area.  People have
posted about Bath and other nearby areas to uk.local.bristol, where
their messages are off-topic, and their postings can not be logically
covered by other uk.local.* groups.

CHARTER uk.local.bath

uk.local.bath is a local interest newsgroup intended for discussions
of a general nature by users resident in the City of Bath, and the
surrounding villages covered by the county of BANES (Bath & North East
Somerset). Users resident outside of the area are welcome so long as
the discussions remain relevant to the area. Matters which are not
specific to the area should be discussed elsewhere.

All adverts are forbidden. Short (i.e. under ten lines) announcements
for local events may be posted provided they relevant to the area
covered by this group, and that they are not posted more frequently
than once per month. Such announcements should have a subject line
with the prefix "ANNOUNCE: ".

Readers are reminded of the existence of uk.local.southwest.adverts,
where relevant local adverts may be posted.

Messages posted to this newsgroup must not be cross-posted to more
than a TOTAL of four uk.local.* newsgroups; these may be
geographically adjacent or overlapping, or connected by the subject of
the post (e.g.  "moving house from Birmingham to Bath").

Note that the advertising of widely-available goods or services is
*not* relevant in this context, and that most uk.local.* groups have
restrictions on advertising, or prohibit it. Cross-posted adverts,
where allowed, must meet the requirements of the charters of *all*
groups involved.

All posts must be in plain text. Attachments, HTML and other types of
formatted text are not permitted, however short (under four-line)
references to relevant FTP-able material and web URL's are welcome.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are
forbidden.  Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a
pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used
where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly
formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make your newsreader
comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.


Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their
"postmaster" and/or Service Provider.
