Do not call this group uk.rave.

Any of

    uk.rec.music.rave
    uk.rec.rave
    uk.soc.rave

would be a far better name.  (My preference lies with the first, since
the rave culture is primarily defined by the music it listens to.  Also,
the idea of a uk.rec.music hierarchy has been mooted before, and I
suspect there will soon be proposals for other groups which would belong
under it.)

If you doubt me, compare and contrast the flamage following the creation
of uk.gay-lesbian-bi with the near-consensus that has been reached on
the name for a Babylon 5 newsgroup.  I predict that the latter will soon
be newgrouped, widely propagated with little controversy, and create
several useful new nodes in the hierarchy to boot.

Tim.
