                             RESULT
		    198 groups will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 2011-04-10 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8
Management Board has decided by vote to remove the 198 unmoderated
groups listed below.

RATIONALE:

All groups listed below fulfill these conditions:
- no moderated groups
- no group names matching *.misc
- zero on-topic, non-crossposted threads in the past 18 months
- on-topic questions that received no on-topic answer do not count

The discussion following the publication of the 1st RFD brought up
principal opposition to the removal of groups, and the notion that
some groups have a function beyond mere traffic.

The claim that the groups in question have not been used for a long
time was not disputed, however.

DISTRIBUTION:

RESULTS:

Vote results are given as yes-no-abstain.
