2.  Votetaker's Comments
- ------------------------

No acknowledgements (or rejection notices) bounced.  There were 
thirteen invalid votes, all but one of them free-form (i.e. not on the 
official ballot paper);  some people made several attempts to vote in 
this manner.  One ballot paper contained an invalid email address.  
Votes in the correct format were later received from all except those 
listed above.  Three people sent in duplicate (although otherwise 
valid) votes, the last-received of which was counted in each case.  
Five people voted in HTML.  I was relieved that I had decided to 
process and count the vote manually rather than attempt any form of 
automation in my first vote.

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

- ---------

Dawson's Creek is now about to start its third season's run in the
United Kingdom. It has already nearly finished in the United States
meaning the British viewers either know everything that is going to
happen in the 3rd series or may have to leave the group as the viewers
from USA and Canada do not respect spoiler space for other countries in
the existing group (alt.tv.dawsons-creek) 

- -------

uk.media.tv.dawsons-creek is a group for discussion of episodes of
Dawson's Creek that have been aired in the UK. Postings on future
storylines (spoilers) are acceptable, but if posted, should have a
subject line beginning "SPOILER:" and a 30-line "spoiler space" before
the content of the post. 


Advertising is not permitted, with the following exceptions:

Suppliers of goods and services relevant to Dawson's Creek may post a
pointer to their website or invitation to request details. This may not
exceed four lines and may be posted no more often than once every three
months. The subject line should begin "AD: " or "ADVERT: ".


Binaries (including HTML) are forbidden, except for PGP signatures.
Pointers to relevant URL's are however welcomed.
