Remove groups

There are so many completely obsolete groups. Also, a bunch of them only have a few posts. Why not remove them so people can focus on more legit groups?

Because for the most part nobody cares about social groups.

I've been in a social group for years and was actually the highest post count of social groups awhile back and still think its the second highest, so of course I believe social groups should not be totally removed. The freedom to discuss games, etc in a more private relaxed setting at times is appreciated knowing that long-time trusted and reliable members would give me a more direct informative answer rather than tossing an inquiring post outside of the group and fishing for a response .
I do agree some social groups have gone to the wayside and after closer inspection could be removed if there is a need for it.

Well, we have a pretty active group for about 2 years now. I think we're at close to 5k posts, too.

Plotting the overthrow of TA takes lots of time ad discussion.

It's invite-only, that's probably why.
