      Abandoned Groups, or groups whose owner has gone inactive, have been
      an issue within the Groups community for some time. While it may seem
      as though this is a simple issue to address, it's actually fairly
      complicated. There are several factors involved that make it
      difficult for us to re-assign ownership responsibilities without the
      original owner's consent.

      In order address this on-going issue, we are going to create a new
      Guideline regarding owner responsibilities to lay the groundwork for
      transferring the ownership of a group where the group owner is not
      fulfilling his/her responsibilities. For example, this Guideline
      might inform group owners that they are responsible for monitoring
      group activity to make sure the group remains true to its purpose and
      that pending messages and members are processed in a timely fashion.

      To read more and offer feedback to help shape this new Guideline,
      please visit the Groups blog here:
