Unfortunately, there have been numerous instances where groop members
have become mysteriously "kicked" out of groo-l. 

So when it so happens that a person, middle-ager/old-timer who's had the
experience of being "kicked" out or has heard of the occurence of such,
notices no emails from the groop after a days of large volume, they
assume they have been so "kicked".

It's awful.
