I've nothing against people wanting to set up their own ng but
rec.skiing.resorts.europe pratically is a discussion group for UK skiers.

Quite, there's no argument I can see that rec.skiing.resorts.europe
isn't working. Diluting it would make it weaker.

Not the point at all. If sufficient people want the group in uk.* and
the naming is sorted out it will happen.

But is there any indication that there will be?

Dilution of
rec.skiing.resorts.europe isn't an issue for people concerned with the
uk.* hierarchy.

But it is for those who already read this group.

I suspect that several of the readers of this group will vote against,
because they will be worried about the effects a new uk group would
have on this one.
