From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Tim Skirvin) Subject: RFD: unmoderate or remove soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated Followup-To: news.groups Date: Mon, 22 May 2006 13:22:24 -0700 Reply-To: email@example.com REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD) unmoderate or remove soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to either unmoderate or remove the moderated Usenet newsgroup soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated. 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. PROCEDURE: As this is fairly untested ground, we have decided to discuss the proposal publicly before anything is changed. Please discuss this proposal in news.groups. DISTRIBUTION: This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups news.groups soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated PROPONENT: Martin Tierney - Moderator, soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated CHANGE HISTORY: 2006-05-22 RFD formatted by Tim Skirvin. 2006-05-01 Original e-mail received by B8MB.
