I don't understand where this attitude is coming from... There was a VOTE
and in keeping with that FORMAL vote, the old groups need to be removed.

It is counterproductive to the goals and intents of the users of these 
groups that you, Mr. Becker, unilateraly decide (for no apparently good
reason, by your admission) to throw a spanner in the work. RMGROUP THEM


Thank you. *sheesh*
