From Usenet Big-8 Management Board
From: email@example.com (Tim Skirvin) Subject: RESULT: soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated will be removed Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated Followup-To: news.groups Date: Fri, 26 May 2006 11:25:58 -0700 Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org RESULT remove soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated The Big-8 Management Board has agreed to the moderator's request to remove the newsgroup soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated. Subject to major developments that may cause the Board to change its decision, the group will be removed on 01 Jun 2006. RATIONALE: soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated I agreed to moderate and admin this group after being asked by the person responsible for it after the hosting arrangements changed. I set it up on Russ' box around 1999 I think, with his permission. This has never been a very successful group however and the person who asked me to help has been difficult to contact even in the early days. There actually hasn't been more than a handful of active posts in all that time and the only posts are an automated mailing list which hasn't had any content for some time and autoposted spam. I have removed the mailing list from the group in the hope that zero posts will trigger the old organiser to contact me but this is most definitely a dead group. EXISTING CHARTER: soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated (None listed.) END CHARTER. PROPONENT: Martin Tierney - Moderator, soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated CHANGE HISTORY: 2006-05-25 Result prepared. 2006-05-22 RFD formatted by Tim Skirvin. 2006-05-01 Original e-mail received by B8MB.
