Can someone reactivate a moderated newsgroup if the moderators just -quit-?

    misc.industry.insurance was not a terribly active group, but it served a
    useful purpose.

    Last summer, however, the moderators just stopped. No explanation, no
    request for someone to take over the job, nothing. E-mails to the
    moderators are now 'bounced'.

    The group is still archived, and there are several [formerly active] posters
    who would like to see the group activated again as alt.business.insurance is
    mostly spam.

    How do we go about choosing a new moderator, or is the group just dead in
    the water?
