                                 RESULT
                  soc.religion.gnosis will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 28 Jun 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
soc.religion.gnosis.

This group will be removed on 11 Jul 2007.


RATIONALE: remove soc.religion.gnosis

The last approval was in December 2000.  Approvals in 2000 were often
sporaradic.

Possible actions include:

(1) Revive the group with a new moderator.

(2) Convert the group to an unmoderated status.

(3) Remove the group.

There is an equivalent unmoderated newsgroup (alt.religion.gnostic),
so an unmoderated soc.religion.gnosis may be redundant.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup soc.religion.gnosis was created in July 1994.  An
earlier creation effort in November 1993 had narrowly missed the
required +100 plurality (151:56).  It approvals until December 2000.
Traffic was often relatively light, with around 5 articles per week.


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups.proposals
  soc.religion.gnosis
  alt.religion.gnostic
  talk.religion.misc

The proponent will also post pointers to:

  soc.religion.shamanism (moderated)
