Default Moderator Vacancy Investigation: soc.support.pregnancy.loss

moderated group soc.support.pregnancy.loss

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
moderated newsgroup soc.support.pregnancy.loss is not functioning, and
may have been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function,
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and
installation of a new moderator. In practice, the Big-8 Management
Board considers the third alternative -- changing the status of the
group from moderated to unmoderated -- as likely to cause more harm than

soc.support.pregnancy.loss Issues and support related to pregnancy loss.

RATIONALE: Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.




Soc.support.pregnancy.loss is a MODERATED forum for discussing all
aspects of pregnancy loss. Its objective is to provide support and
information for everyone experiencing or concerned about the trauma of
miscarriage, (including blighted ovum), ectopic pregnancy, therapeutic
terminations, still birth or neo-natal death. Postings should be
supportive and non-judgmental.

The following are examples of topics appropriate to this newsgroup:

* Causes of pregnancy loss
* Monitoring pregnancy and preventing miscarriage (where possible)
* Risks for subsequent pregnancies
* Coping with fear in subsequent pregnancies
* Grieving for our lost babies
* Funerals and remembrance
* What to say (and not to say) about pregnancy loss
* Deciding to terminate a pregnancy when an abnormality is detected
* Deciding to continue a pregnancy when an abnormality is detected
* Deciding what to do when the baby has died but the pregnancy
* Organizations that can help

Most importantly, this newsgroup functions as an on-line support
group, a place to tell our stories and receive support from people who
have been through similar experiences.

Unwelcome Posts:

All criticism about choices made when faced with pregnancy loss are
Unwelcome. Unsupportive posts concerning therapeutic terminations, as
well as posts debating the moral, ethical and political implications
of abortion will not be approved by the moderators under any
circumstances. Flames, all pyramid selling and "get rich quick"
schemes, and postings of a commercial nature (although posters
will be free to recommend or criticize commercial products on a
personal basis.), are also unwelcome and will not be approved for
posting. Binary files are also unwelcome.


The group passed its vote 10 December 1997 by 153:51. Traffic dwindled
to zero in late 2005.

PROPONENT: Steve Bonine
