Sweet! I finally found a way to fix the sh--ty broken version of Google Groups (aka the NEW and "IMPROVED" *cough*sh--ty*cough* version) they're forcing on us! First I tried using various addresses, changing the groups-beta part to groups - but it redirected me back to groups-beta. No dice.
But there is a way! http://groups.google.co.uk/
still uses the 'classic' version of Google Groups the US version won't let anyone at! w00t!! Current Mood: w00t!! Excellent!!
