You should know that alt groups are very hard to remove.
Since alt.* has no rules, one person in particular has taken
it upon himself to champion the existence of every single
alt.* group -- his argument is "If someone posts there, then
the group deserves to exist".  If you don't want to have
two *.infosystems.www.programmer groups, then I'd reccomend
against creating alt.infosystems.www.programmer .
