                  misc.news.southasia 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.southasia.

This group will be removed on 27 Sep 2006.


RATIONALE: remove misc.news.southasia

The last approved message was in March 1998.

Since the 1990s, development of the Internet and World Wide Web have opened up
direct access to news sources in South Asia 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.southasia was created in March 1991 to post "News
Reports from the countries of South Asia- Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and
Sri-Lanka."


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups
  misc.news.southasia

The proponent will also post pointers to:

  soc.culture.bangladesh
  soc.culture.indian
  soc.culture.nepal
  soc.culture.pakistan
  soc.culture.sri-lanka


PROPONENT:
