                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                        remove misc.news.bosnia

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the 
newsgroup misc.news.bosnia.


RATIONALE: remove misc.news.bosnia

The last approved message was in May 1998.

Since the 1990s, development of the Internet and World Wide Web have opened up
direct access to news sources in Bosnia and southeastern Europe in general so
that a newsgroup is no longer the most efficient means of news distribution.  In
addition, it may be impossible to have a moderator who is considered neutral,
and there may be copyright issues with regard to distribution of news articles
published in other media.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup misc.news.bosnia was created in September 1994 to "provide prompt
& timely information on Bosnia"


PROCEDURE: 

The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here:

  http://www.big-8.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=policies:rmgroup

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

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

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

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 as well.



DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups
  misc.news.bosnia
  soc.culture.bosna-herzgvna

The proponent will also post pointers to:
