The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 2010-01-10 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8
Management Board has decided by vote to remove moderated group
sci.psychology.consciousness.

Vote results (yes-no-abstain): 10-0-0

RATIONALE:

Russ Allbery has been running an autoresponder on the submission address
for sci.psychology.consciousness, telling people to use the corresponding
PSYCHE-D mailing list instead (which was gated to the newsgroup).

According to http://www.lsoft.com/SCRIPTS/WL.EXE?XH=LISTSERV.UH.EDU
this mailing does not exist anymore. Looking at groups.google.com reveals
that the newsgroup was unsubscribed from the mailing list in 2006 and
there has been zero traffic in the moderated newsgroup since then, except
for one bit of forge-approved spam.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:
