    This is the list charter that I drafted for George about 2 months ago. 
    George has never said yay or nay to my charter, so it is not official. 
     AFAIK, it is George's list, so "votes" don't count, unless George 
    chooses to put it to a vote. But IMHO, this charter would be very 
    functional, and seems to fit the goals of what most of the people here want.
    And it would cut down on the meta-discussion about what CRIME is 
    supposed to be about :-)
    Note that there are a few blanks in the charter, e.g. for appropriate 
    resources for talking about virii. I assume that Jimmy can come up with 
    better resources than I can.
