              MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
              moderated group misc.activism.anti-fascism.announce

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
moderated newsgroup misc.activism.anti-fascism.announce is not functioning,
and may have been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function,
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and instal-
lation of a new moderator.  In practice, the Big-8 Management Board
considers the third alternative--changing the status of the group from
moderated to unmoderated--as likely to cause more harm than good.

RATIONALE:

Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.
