                comp.sys.apple2.comm will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 2012-11-17 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8
Management Board has decided by vote to remove moderated group


        Posting volume had dropped to little more than two FAQ posts per
        month since 2007. FAQ posting ceased in December 2010 and the
        group had 2 posts in all of 2011 one of which was off-topic, and
        2 posts so far for this year, both of which were off-topic.

        Discussions of Apple II systems and software can take place in
        the main comp.sys.apple2 newsgroup, which has a far wider
        readership and posting volume. As the catch-all newsgroup for
        the Apple II, all on-topic posts in csa2.comm would also be
        on-topic for comp.sys.apple2.

        Whereas the rise of broadband Internet has all but extinguished
        the use of modems and telehpone-based communications, and being
        that the Apple II computer system is obsolete, it is improbable
        that the volume of on-topic discussions will ever increase in


comp.sys.apple2.comm    Apple II data communications.




        === CHARTER:  comp.sys.apple2.comm (unmoderated) 

        The original proposal called for the "comp.sys.apple2.bbs" 
        newsgroup.  The new name is offered here as a more accurate 
        alternative.  Topics suitable for discussion in csa2.comm
        include (but are not limited to):

        1. Telecommunications software (ProTERM, ANSITerm, ZLink, TIC,
        2. Bulletin board software (METAL/FutureVision, ProLine, Warp
        Six, GBBS Pro, Prime, etc.) 
        3. Online services (GEnie, CompuServe, America Online, etc.) 
        4. Telecommunications hardware (high-speed modems, building
        cables, selecting a serial card, etc.) 
        5. Networking (AppleShare, LocalTalk, Ethertalk, CAP, etc.) 
        6. Cross-platform connectivity (IBM-to-Apple,
        Apple-to-Macintosh, Apple-to-UNIX via UUCP, etc.) 

       This proposal also calls for the merging of the "a2bbs" mailing 
       list, currently maintained by Doug Granzow on the ProLine BBS
        network system.  Creation of csa2.comm will expand the
        distribution of this popular mailing list (over 100 readers) to
        the Usenet domain. 


        comp.sys.apple2.comm is an unmoderated newsgroup which passed
        its vote for creation by 259:38 as reported in
        news.announce.newgroups on 28 May 1993.

        For your newsgroups file: 

        comp.sys.apple2.comm            Apple II data communications.
