Hi all!!!

The proposed cuseeme news hierarchy is as follows:

<(moderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.announce
<(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.mac
<(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.pc
<(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.reflectors

I tend to agree with Tim Dorcey on the issue of naming the CU-SeeMe
newsgroups. I feel that *multimedia* is both inappropriate and misleading.
Apart from anything else, the term multimedia is over-used, over-rated,
little understood and in this case, just plain not true.

Just an opinion...
