Newsgroup, anyone?

There is an RFD/CFV upcoming for new VW newsgroups, and I'm wondering
whether this might be an opportune time to propose an Audi newsgroup
as well. The mailing list is very busy (averaging 20-25 messages per
day, and much higher bursts), and reading through news is a lot more
convenient for most people.

How do other people feel about this?  A newsgroup is certainly a less
controlled medium, and thus more open to flames and moronic posts.  And
yet rec.autos.vw has a pretty high S/N ratio, and this list has seen a
few stupid articles as well.  :)

Yea?  Nay?  Is it worth proposing and taking it to a vote?
