                   MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
                  moderated group soc.culture.indian.info

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because 
moderated newsgroup soc.culture.indian.info 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 
installation 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.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:
soc.culture.indian.info Info group for soc.culture.indian, etc. (Moderated)

traffic was in August 2001.
