This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
moderated newsgroup comp.internet.net-happenings is not functioning, and may have
been abandoned by its moderator(s).
This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function,
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and instal-
lation of a new moderator. In practice, the Big-8 Management Board
considers the third alternative--changing the status of the group from
moderated to unmoderated--as likely to cause more harm than good.
