                                 RESULT
                  misc.business.credit will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 28 Mar 2007 initiated a five-day period
for final comments.  Following the comment period, the Big-8 Management Board
has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup misc.business.credit.

This group will be removed on 09 Apr 2007.


RATIONALE: remove misc.business.credit

The last approved message was in September 1999.  There had been
roughly 5 approved threads per month for the first three years of the
newsgroup (October 1995 to September 1996).  For the final year, there
was typically only 1 or 2 approvals per month.

Alternatives include:

(1) Assign a new moderator.

(2) Convert the newsgroup to unmoderated status.  I do not believe
that group with "business" in its name can function as an unmoderated
newsgroup (see misc.business.records-mgmt, the only unmoderated
misc.business.* Newsgroup).

(3) Remove the newsgroup.  Discussion of business credit may (continue
to) occur in groups such as misc.business.moderated or
misc.entrepreneurs.moderated.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup misc.business.credit was created in October 1995.
Approved threads were around 5 per month for the first 3 years of its
existence.  In the last year, there were typically 1 to 2 approvals
per month.  The last approval was in September 1999.


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups.proposals
  misc.business.credit

The proponent will also post pointers to:

  misc.business.moderated (moderated)
  misc.entrepreneurs.moderated (moderated)
