With all due respect, I think what we are all about is UNCOOKING. I think
we would be viewed as oppositional to the aims of rec.food.veg.cooking if
we went in there in the manner you suggested. Instead, I repeat, let's
take over alt.org.vitality-4-life for 1996, with the aim of having a
veg-raw or veg.no-cooking newsgroup in 1997. I really think the name
vitality-4-life is a great one for us because raw foods are so full of
vitality the source of all life!
