locked Re: Delete Group
Mark, I have a suggestion for that, please do not ever consider a requirement of a poll that asks members to vote on a new moderator.
Why? Well, for example, there is a group on Yahoogroups I would love to become a moderator of, but, there is no way in the world that I am willing to show all the spammers on there what my email address is.
These guys are sending the most vile messages you can imagine to what was once a very good group, but there is no way I would want a hundred or so of those guys to know what my email address is, as I would become, well, a target.
I would think if you sent a message to the indicated owner and it bounced back to you, for a period of (X) number of days (a value you can determine) that you can consider the owner to be nonexistent.
At that point, just interview the person asking to be made moderator, via email, you certainly ought to be able to decide whether he is legitimate, and make him a moderator.
Maybe without the ability to delete the group, that would be fine.
