RATIONALE:

I took over moderation of this group in September of 2007 as a result of
an MVI after the group had been dead for some time.  There have been no
submissions received (aside from email spam to the moderation address)
and there appears to be no need or desire by users for this group.

Since posting of the 1st RFD for removal on 2009-11-25, 3 people have
posted in support of removal of the group with the following Message
ID's:

<howard-306310.01474330112009@news.newsguy.com>
<hevr24$l2u$1@news.eternal-september.org>
<jollyroger-444F60.11074803122009@news.individual.net>

There have been no posts in favor of keeping the group.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:
