The Maltese newsgroup alt.culture.malta was set up for the discussion of
anything related to Malta, or the Maltese islands. It may be used by web
page creators as a springboard for URL announcements of Maltese websites.
Created on the 25th October 1996, this is now another good place where to submit
a message describing your new Maltese web page. The newsgroup is
unmoderated. The alt.culture.malta web page can be found at the URL

Why has alt.culture.malta been set up? What is its purpose?

It has been set up as a new Maltese newsgroup since there is a
demand for a newsgroup where to discuss Maltese topics.
Anything related to Malta, Gozo, the Maltese Islands, Maltese
culture, tradition, history, future, whatever is Malta-related.
Even discussion of Maltese WWW sites and announcements of Maltese
Web resources physically located in Malta and abroad may take place
on the newsgroup. alt.malta is technically "defunct" and still
exists only in a few isolated pocket locations, it does not
propagate any more (if at all) since most sites have now dropped it
replacing it with alt.culture.malta.
