Thread: New group: "comp.protocols.dicom.software"

  1. New group: "comp.protocols.dicom.software"

    Hi All.

    With great interest I read all the messages posted in this group for
    already several years. I have learned a lot from it that I could use
    to my benefit in my job.
    Now that more and more programmers worldwide become interested in
    DICOM, more and more messages about DICOM software products appear in
    this newsgroup. I am not a programmer myself, but a service specialist
    in MRI, networking and DICOM for a major manufacturer.
    Although some of the messages dealing with DICOM software products
    have my special interest, the majority of the software-related DICOM
    messages do not ahve my interest.

    Lately the dicom newsgroup contains many messages about software
    products dealing with DICOM.

    With this message I want to propose to start a new DICOM newsgroup
    besides the present group: "comp.protocols.dicom". I would suggest a
    group with the name : "comp.protocols.dicom.software". or something
    similar. I think this does not need any further explanation.

    I would greatly appreciate any respons from the people in this group
    who always answer questions.

    Kind regards
    Kees

    Hi Kees

    Since you asked, I am totally opposed to this.

    There is not enough volume to justify splitting what little traffic
    there is into a new subgroup, and there is considerable overlap
    in terms of what is relevant to developers and others.

    Not to mention the intensely tedious and bureaucratic process that
    is necessary to establish a new non-alt group. David Channin was
    lucky to get the votes to establish the original group in the first
    place.

    If you aren't interested in the messages that don't apply to you,
    skip them, but don't try to sequester them somewhere else where
    they won't offend your tender sensibilities.

    David
