                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                  remove comp.publish.electronic.misc

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the unmoderated
newsgroup comp.publish.electronic.misc.


RATIONALE: remove comp.publish.electronic.misc

Low traffic, spam, malicious (virus) and off-topic posts.

  http://groups.google.com/group/comp.publish.electronic.misc/about?


HISTORY: 

Created on July 19, 1995.

In 1999, CPEM was in trouble.  Terje Johansen began his attempt to
revive interest in the newsgroup on November 21st of that year.  He
succeeded for quite a few months.  However, he unsubscribed in March
of 2002.  CPEM never recovered thereafter.


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.
