                     Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI)

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
the moderated newsgroup sci.aeronautics.airliners is not functioning,
and may have been abandoned by its moderator.  This investigation will
attempt to verify the reasons for non-function, and may result in the
removal of the group, the unmoderation of the group, or the selection
and installation of a new moderator.

To discuss the issues affecting the group, to propose a new moderator,
or to provide information regarding the current moderator, please respond
to this thread in the news.groups newsgroup.  If you are interested in
the continued existence of this newsgroup, please also indicate that
interest in the news.groups newsgroup.

If you *are* the current moderator, and retain an interest in the group,
please reply to this announcement immediately.  If the current moderator
appears and re-asserts control of the group, the investigation may be
halted entirely, or shifted to discussion of technical problems which
may have adversely affected the functioning of the group.

Unless the current moderator appears and expresses an interest in
continuing, the presumption of this investigation is that a problem
exists, and that a change is needed.  The MVI procedure is initiated only
when such a presumption exists, formed due to both absence of postings
in the group and either absence of response from the moderator or an
explicit statement that the group is abandoned or should be removed.

Pending the confirmation of a vacancy, and the successful completion of
these proceedings, a new moderator may be installed on a probationary
basis at the discretion of the news.announce.newgroups moderation team.
Note that the removal of the group at the conclusion of the MVI is also
a strong possibility.  In many cases, moderators abandon groups because
no one is interested in using them.

STATUS: sci.aeronautics.airliners

The status with regard to finding a new moderator is as follows:

Interest in this group was expressed by John Kohl.

"I suspect that this group was for those who didn't really think the
discussion belonged in rec.aviation.*."

If such a distinction is to be maintained, the group might need an
active moderator.


This is a preliminary procedure.  It will run for a minimum of 21 days,
at which point a decision will hopefully be reached.  It is possible
that the MVI period will be extended at that time.

Probationary moderators may be removed by the NAN Team.  Moderators
installed by vote during a RFD/CFV, or given the group by an active
previous moderator installed by vote (including in a chain from such a
moderator), are not subject to probation.



You may post pointers to this investigation announcement to other
interested newsgroups.  However, all discussion should appear in

Note:  The majority of this post is a form letter, indicating an MVI
procedure for the group sci.aeronautics.airliners.  The primary exception
is the STATUS paragraph.

65. Moreover, where goals are pursued through earning money, climbing
   the status ladder or functioning as part of the system in some other
   way, most people are not in a position to pursue their goals
   AUTONOMOUSLY. Most workers are someone else's employee as, as we
   pointed out in paragraph 61, must spend their days doing what they are
   told to do in the way they are told to do it. Even most people who are
   in business for themselves have only limited autonomy. It is a chronic
   complaint of small-business persons and entrepreneurs that their hands
   are tied by excessive government regulation. Some of these regulations
   are doubtless unnecessary, but for the most part government
   regulations are essential and inevitable parts of our extremely
   complex society. A large portion of small business today operates on
   the franchise system. It was reported in the Wall Street Journal a few
   years ago that many of the franchise-granting companies require
   applicants for franchises to take a personality test that is designed
   to EXCLUDE those
