                    misc.news.bosnia will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 15 Sep 2006 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following the comment period, the Big-8
Management board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup
misc.news.bosnia.

This group will be removed on 27 Sep 2006.


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
