Well, such a group (for interesting stuff) already exists in the Internet side
of things. It's called INFO-COBOL. Why not create comp.lang.cobol on the
USENET side (which would be even better from a bean-counter-point of view,
plus have some kind of correspondence with with already existing list.)

Some enterprising soul could set up a one-way link between the groups if
necessary (since I doubt the Internetters would want to put up with the
trash from the USENET side, and the USENET types probably wouldn't put up
with 'moderation' anyway.)

Here's a copy of the mail I sent... I wonder how many header-parsing
programs and news systems it will break?

To: webber@ARAMIS.RUTGERS.EDU
Subject: NO for comp.protocols.tcp-ip.eniac

It might be acceptable if the name were changed to comp.lang.cobol,
since there's an info-cobol (hack) mailing list in the Internet
which could be fed into comp.lang.cobol.

Thanks.
