Now, that’s a tricky one. Is this a forum for kids, or for
adults discussing their rights?
I guess that the best way is for you to send me the announcement
to be uploaded as a file to KIDS-92. Next step, I’ll announce
the availability there when confirmed.
The advantage of this is that the info will remain in the
Archives and not just ‘scroll off the screen’ and thus be
unavailable to new subscribers.

Yes, it -is- a tricky one….
You see, it’ll be a forum for everyone, regardless of age. Some will talk
of the theoretical aspects of Rights, some threads will talk about what
can be done now, but it will be open for everyone.
One thing that I fear slightly, is that there will be some who will talk
of some of the ‘younger’ members of the list in a patronizing and highly
‘removed’ manner. But it is something I will deal with as the time
Right now, I will draft a ‘statement of purpose’ for the list, and, when the
list addresses are ready (probably on Monday), I will upload them to
KIDPLAN2, and will ask for it to be distributed among the related lists
as it is deemed appropriate.
