Where did groups go?

Poof. Bye-bye. Gonzo. But really, we talked about groups and some other "social" type features of the site, and from a management and technology perspective, they were just too problematic. It was hard to police from a moderation standpoint, and it was a big source of the spam issues we had.

Instead, we've decided that the best place for social networking is on the social networks. Google+, Facebook, Reddit, etc. We'd rather encourage those connections to take place and extend in those places where the strengths of social networking lie, and allow us to use the Hub to encourage and build on discussions and conversations. Basically, try to let the tools do what they do best, and not force them to do things that they are less good for.
