Groups: Deviating from Google Quality of Service

I administer some 10+ mailing lists using Google Groups and it has been disappointing to see that the service continues to carry bugs which had originally floated over an year ago and users have been complaining all along.

Case in point: Owners of groups are getting their messages to the group bounced back with the message:
We're writing to let you know that the group that you tried to contact (eb_xxx) either doesn't exist, or you don't have permission to post to it. There are a few possible reasons why this happened:

* You might have spelled or formatted the group name incorrectly.

* The owner of the group removed this group, so there's nobody there to contact.
* You may need to join the group before being allowed to post.
* This group may not be open to posting.

If you have questions about this or any other group, please visit the Google
Groups Help Center at http://groups.google.com/support.

Thanks, and we hope you'll continue to enjoy Google Groups.


The Google Groups Team
This can of course not be true for owners of groups.

The problem has been reported many times to Google Groups Team on mailing lists, but is apparently being ignored.

One morning as I woke up in Germany I found that Paypal decided to lock up our account without any specific reason. There were no disputes or complaints from buyers or anything that suggested provocation. They just locked it. In it a few thousands of dollars of cash-flow and the account was listed as a favored payment option for some 100 pending auctions - now customers couldn't pay for …

SnagIT Problem Solved! (Hangs for minutes)

Here's the solution to the SnagIT sluggishness (hangs for several minutes)
I would try first turning off the magnifier window under tools > program preferences > program options. Uncheck the box to show magnifier windows. Click apply > ok and then try the capture again.Check your security software and make sure that Snagit is set as a safe application. A security program that consistently scans the process will cause a very slow response like you are seeing.Please also check your printers per this article:Answer Title: Slow SnagIt startupAnswer Link: http://techsmith.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/techsmith.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=742Finally, please review the steps here and try these as well:Answer Title: SnagIt crashes or hangs when launchedAnswer Link: http://techsmith.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/techsmith.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=137Let me know what happens.
