The powers that be (not me this time, the Usenet people) were very
to r.g.m.warhammer simply because it was specific to Games Workshop. A
group would meet as much, if not more resistance.

sf is not specificaly mentioned in the remit of r.g.m.m. What is
are painting, modeling, sculpting and 'other games that do not fit
So a .sf (Speculative Fiction in Usenet terminology, so it covers
games too) group is quite legitimate, as a section that is officialy
a catch all, and not the specific intent of the group, is flooding the
and drowning out the painting, sculpting etc posts.

It might also encourage more use of .m for painting tips etc, and keep
'for sale' posts in their place.
