                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
         unmoderate or remove comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to either unmoderate or
remove the moderated Usenet newsgroup comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated.

RATIONALE: comp.os.ms-windows.win95.moderated

I answered a request in the group in 1998 seeking volunteers to join
the moderators and soon began doing the stats and administering the
group. At that stage it was very active. Over time since then both
moderators have resigned and the number of active/direct posts has
diminished to the extent that I am the only active moderator and the
last post I received for moderation was 12 months ago. All posts now
coing in are autoposted spam. I think the group has now served its
purpose but haven't yet been able to contact Bruce Baugh (the e-mail
address from 1998 is no longer valid) who I think was instrumental in
setting it up to ask his opinion of declaring it a dead group. I am
happy to keep supporting it if it is felt there is case to maintain
it but I think it is probably now dead.
