                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
          unmoderate or remove soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to either unmoderate or
remove the moderated Usenet newsgroup soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated.

RATIONALE: soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated

I agreed to moderate and admin this group after being asked by the
person responsible for it after the hosting arrangements changed. I
set it up on Russ' box around 1999 I think, with his permission. This
has never been a very successful group however and the person who
asked me to help has been difficult to contact even in the early
days. There actually hasn't been more than a handful of active posts
in all that time and the only posts are an automated mailing list
which hasn't had any content for some time and autoposted spam. I
have removed the mailing list from the group in the hope that zero
posts will trigger the old organiser to contact me but this is most
definitely a dead group.

EXISTING CHARTER: soc.culture.ethiopia.moderated

(None listed.)

END CHARTER.

publicly before anything is changed.  Please discuss this proposal in
news.groups.
