Default RFD: remove rec.aviation.answers moderated

This is a copy of an RFD regarding the possible removal of the
newsgroup rec.aviation.anwers. Discussion should occur in
news.groups.proposals, and the Followup-To header has been set to that
================================================== ====================
remove rec.aviation.answers

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the moderated
newsgroup rec.aviation.answers.

RATIONALE: remove rec.aviation.answers

The last approved articles were in February 2002. Most of the FAQ's
in the group had not been updated from periods ranging from about 3 to
6 years.

5 of the 8 FAQ's posted to the group were associated with single
groups in the rec.aviation.hierarchy: ra.aerobatic; ra.homebuilt;
ra.hang-gliding; ra.simulators; and ra.ultralight. FAQ's for those
groups could be posted directly to the groups. If there was interest
in updating and posting the other FAQ's, they could be posted to
rec.answers and news.answers (note: at present, such postings may
require self-approvals).

The content of the group makes it inappropriate for an unmoderated


The newsgroup rec.aviation.answers was created in September 1992, as
part of a re-organization of rec.aviation into 13 newsgroups
(rec.aviation.announce (ra.announce); ra.answers; ra.homebuilt;
ra.ifr; ra.military; ra.misc; ra.owning; ra.piloting; ra.products;
ra.simulators; ra.soaring; ra.stories; and ra.student).

There were interruptions from March 1995 to November 1995; and from
May 1997 to February 1998. The final interruption was in February
2002 to the present.

Over most of its history, the content of the group consisted of the
following 8 FAQ's. Most were revised at least once per year for the
first few years, with changes becoming more rare later on. Most have
not been updated for roughly the past decade.

Netiquette on rec.aviation (Oct 1992-Feb 2002; Jan 1994)

The charter (periodically posted to the group) is:
