Well, why didn't you spend five seconds with a search engine to find
out, instead of displaying your ignorance for all to see?

http://www.just****inggoogleit.com/?...mputer+charter

First hit:

http://www.faqs.org/faqs/games/chess.../preamble.html

To save you the extreme effort of actually loading it in your web
browser, the relevant section is

``CHARTER: The rec.games.chess.computer newsgroup will provide a
place to disseminate reports, discussions and analysis of game
servers, where chess games can be played in real time, similar to
playing games of chess via telephone; information and discussion
about databases, games collections, chess-playing software, and
other computer programs of a similar nature, either offered for
sale, or in the state of development.''

On the other side, like it or not, Sam is involved in a lawsuit that
certainly involves computers, system administrators, the Internet,
Internet security experts, Internet impersonation and defamation as well
as many chess and chess politics aspects.


None of this makes it on-topic in rec.games.chess.computer, since it
has nothing to do with computer chess, i.e., chess played by, against
or via computers and other computer chess software. If the mere
involvement of a computer were sufficient to justify posting on
rgc.computer, any post about chess would be on-topic there, since
every single post is made using computers.

Please don't crosspost your criticisms about crossposting more widely
than the original post. It demonstrates quite clearly that you are
not acting out of any desire to make Usenet a better place.
