From: email@example.com (Tim Skirvin) Subject: RESULT: comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated will be removed Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated Followup-To: news.groups Date: Thu, 25 May 2006 07:46:16 -0700 Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org RESULT remove comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated The Big-8 Management Board has agreed to the moderator's request to remove the newsgroup comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated. Subject to major developments that may cause the Board to change its decision, the group will be removed on 01 Jun 2006. RATIONALE: comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated I answered a request in the group in 1998 seeking volunteers to join the moderators and soon began doing the stats and administering the group. At that stage it was very active. Over time since then both moderators have resigned and the number of active/direct posts has diminished to the extent that I am the only active moderator and the last post I received for moderation was 12 months ago. All posts now coing in are autoposted spam. I think the group has now served its purpose but haven't yet been able to contact Bruce Baugh (the e-mail address from 1998 is no longer valid) who I think was instrumental in setting it up to ask his opinion of declaring it a dead group. I am happy to keep supporting it if it is felt there is case to maintain it but I think it is probably now dead. EXISTING CHARTER: comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated (None listed.) END CHARTER.
