RFD: Remove comp.theory.dynamic-sys and comp.theory.self-org-sys

Post by Jim Rile » Wed, 19 Jul 2006 18:55:02



REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the following
Usenet newsgroups:

remove comp.theory.dynamic-sys
remove comp.theory.self-org-sys

RATIONALE: remove comp.theory.dynamic-sys
remove comp.theory.self-org-sys

These are two of a set of 31 low-traffic former INET groups proposed for
removal. Please see the article

"2nd RFD: Remove low traffic former INET groups"

posted to news.announce.newgroups and news.groups for a more general
discussion.

**********************************************************************************

RATIONALE: remove comp.theory.dynamic-sys
remove comp.theory.self-org-sys

The newsgroup lines are:

|comp.theory.dynamic-sys Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems.
|comp.theory.self-org-sys Topics related to self-organization.

comp.theory.dynamic-sys and comp.theory.self-org-sys have had one
discussion thread "*Real* Distributed Computing" cross-posted between
the two groups and several other groups including comp.distributed,
comp.object, comp.theory.cell-automata, and comp.theory. It is
improbable that participation was coming from either of the two groups.

comp.theory.self-org-sys had a discussion thread "I need an email
calendar for non-profit org" cross-posted to alt.management,
alt.office.management, soc.org.nonprofit. It is not clear whether the
originator wanted the calendar software to help him self-organize, or he
thought a self-organization was similar to a non-profit-organization.

Both groups also get quite a bit of conference and similar
announcements, but no discussion of their own.

**********************************************************************************

PROCEDURE:

The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ :rmgroup

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove these newsgroups
should subscribe to news.groups and participate in the relevant threads
in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to
news.groups.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion
may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure
that all discussion appears in news.groups as well.

DISTRIBUTION:

news.announce.newgroups
news.groups
comp.theory.self-org-sys
comp.theory.dynamic-sys
comp.theory
comp.ai.alife

PROPONENT:

Jim Riley < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >

CHANGE HISTORY:

2006-07-08 Original RFD.
