I have found the same problem in the USA Southeast group, one particular member isnt even an American and is also a member of another USA group......


    If you can solve that problem, you'll become rich beyond the dreams of avarice.

    How do you propose weed out non-Americans from the USA Southwest group? Set up a House Committee on un-American Activities?

    Yeh, it's like joining the cool boys and girls group. I wanted to join, but deep in my heart I know I'm not cool (enough). But if I was (cool enough), I would become an admin and the first thing I would do is start deleting those people who were not as cool as they think they are. I would delete and delete until I was the only cool one left.

    So what is the use/point of having "groups" then if a "group" can be just one ?!

    To be able to set up vote chess games versus an individual?

    A perfectly good reason. Another is that in the great majority of cases a group represents a concept rather than an individual person.

    Q-What would be the purpose for removing all one person groups? What would we gain?

    Reb could save a few euros on HOGWASH, those 40 gallon drums are not cheap. Laughing
