There is a proposal currently in news.announce.newgroups to remove 198
unmoderated newsgroups all across the BIG8. Because of the magnitude
of the group list the proposal is not crossposted to target groups.
Instead pointers are posted to a few selected groups.

The full text of the proposal is available here:

http://www.big-8.org/wiki/Nan:2011-02-01-rfd-great-downsizing
http://groups.google.com/group/news.announce.newgroups/msg/091abc69fd45436b

Affected groups that might interest you:

comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.marketplace PC clone games wanted and for sale.
comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard.advocacy Advocacy for a particular soundcard.

If you have any objections, please make them heard in moderated group
news.groups.proposals. The "Followup-To:" header is set on this message,
so simply replying to this post should do the right thing.
