                   talk.current-events will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 31 March 2009 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8
Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the moderated group

This group will be removed on 18 April 2009.


talk.current-events moderated was created in September 2006.

Rationale for removal:

Insufficient on-topic traffic. While the group was successful for a year
or two, there has been little to no traffic in the last year, and there
is no indication that this will change in the future.  The moderators
are requesting that the group be removed.


This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups (moderated)
  news.groups.proposals (moderated)
  talk.current-events (moderated)
