As long as three people want to carry on under an established public
label for an online forum, it is unconscionably oppressive for any
ill-defined "majority" to "do away with" the forum.  This "tyranny of
the majority" model allows a large group to meddle in the business of,
and even demolish, a smaller group and thereby gives democracy a bad

Yes.  Only the people involved in uk.p should get to vote on the
fate of uk.p.  Even then, the vote ought not include the option
of the group to do away with the forum.  Each individual can leave
the forum if they don't want it to exist.
