Message-ID: <jp07pc9d659bunrmk4battsfi1t143f98f@news.airmail.net>

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) to remove the 
{moderated or unmoderated} newsgroup {insert newsgroup name(s)}.

Distribution:
	news.announce.newgroups
	news.groups.proposals
	misc.legal.moderated

Proponent: Bernie Cosell <mlmmod@fantasyfarm.com>

Charter:

	See <https://www.dropbox.com/s/74g5zyaa9qc5i29/charter.txt?dl=0>
    
Rationale for removal:

	After a 20+ year run, the traffic in m.l.m has dropped to a post
    every month or two, if that
    
History of the Group:

    Group was created in 1994.  It was created to provide a moderated
    alternative to misc.legal.  In the past it has run with as many as
    20+ posts a day.  Now there's hardly a post at all any more.
    
Procedure:

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup should 
subscribe to news:news.groups.proposals and participate in the relevant
threads in 
that newsgroup.  

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to 
news.groups.proposals.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to 
news.groups.proposals.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion may
be
crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure that all
discussion appears in news.groups.proposals as well.
