                   soc.religion.shamanism will be removed

Following a period for comments begun with the Last Call for Comments
posted on 1 April 2009, the Big-8 Management Board has decided
by consensus to remove this group.

This group will be removed on 18 April 2009.


soc.religion.shamanism was originally created in October 1993.  In
January 2007, the moderator position was reassigned to a robo-moderator
run by Tim Skirvin, in consultation with Doug Freyburger and Kevin

Rationale for removal:

No on-topic traffic in over a year.  The current moderators have
agreed that it is not worth salvaging and agreed to request that the
group be removed.
