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.next.advocacy The NeXT religion.
comp.sys.next.bugs Discussion and solutions for known NeXT bugs.

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.

Hi,

comp.sys.next.marketplace is just about the only place one can post requests for NeXT hardware and software these days. Please leave it in place.

I think the advocacy group could probably go since NeXT clearly ate Apple.
Alternatively perhaps there only needs to be one NeXT group for everything related to NeXT.
comp.sys.next or comp.sys.next.computer might do it!

Thank you,
T
