|I think that is mistake.  The only reason for using them is to talk about
|the unix-pc.  Since that is now done with comp.*.3b1, there is no reason to
|keep the groups.  The only use they will get is the occasional pc unix
|question.  They probably will not get their questions answered, as there will
|be few people reading those groups.  There are already groups for that,
|and keeping the unix-pc groups will only confuse those new readers.

	Nevertheless, I've decided that I don't
	have the right to interfere with any of
	those uses, as inefficient as it may be
	viewed by anyone not using them...
