                                 RESULT
       rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft will be removed

Following the Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 02 Nov 2007, the Big-8
Management board has decided by vote to remove the newsgroup
rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft.  The vote was five in favor,
three against, and one explicit abstention.

This group will be removed on 09 Nov 2007.


RATIONALE: remove rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft

This newsgroup was created as part of a trial "bulk creation" newsgroup
creation process, in which "obvious" newsgroups were created without
specific proponents or charters. Subsequent to the group's creation, it
was discovered that an active group, alt.games.warcraft, already exists
for this topic. In order to prevent fragmention of the Usenet WOW
community, I propose that the newly-created
rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft be removed before it's widely
propagated and established.


HISTORY: 

The newgroup was issued on Monday, October 8, 2007.
