Let's make it easier on Robert and use the thread he started to gather feedback. Here's the link:
Beth is right, Nick looked into it and neither of you were members of that group. But it's a public group and that may have caused the confusion.
There will be a lot of other groups available shortly.
P.S. if we could, can we continue discussing site feedback on the able2know group? That is pretty much what that group is for (a group for meta-discussion about the site).
