              REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
              moderated group soc.religion.christian

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) to change moderators of
newsgroup soc.religion.christian, or to remove this group.

RATIONALE:

According to David Kleinecke the group has stopped functioning.
The last post was approved on 2009-09-30.
A probe post showed no result.

David Kleinecke sent a mail in which he volunteered to take over modera-
tion. In response to the 1st RFD he declared on 2010-03-21 that he has
no desire to moderate. In response to the 2nd RFD he wrote on 2010-04-02
that his offer still stands. These two messages are his only contribution
to the discussion in NGP.

Timothy Sutter posted to news.groups.proposals that he is willing to
moderate soc.religion.christian.

However, his erratic behavior in the following discussions, a series
of about 40 posts to soc.religion.christian using rogue approvals, and
the contents of alt.god.timothy.sutter show that he is unsuitable. He
should never have been listed as an option. The proponent apologizes
for not doing a background check in advance.

Helmut Richter wrote that he would give it a try if three other team
members could be found.
