                        moderated group

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because 
moderated newsgroup 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 

NEWSGROUPS LINE: AIDS: treatment, pathology/biology of HIV, prevention. 


Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.  The last on-topic 
article dates from 2004.



CHARTER:  Not available.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:   There is no information on the newsgroup at the 
ISC archive.  The group was active from mid-1989 until early 2004.
