moderated Re: Need help figuring out a policy on this

I suggest that there is nothing that can be done to the platform (groups.io) that will prevent hijacking when trust deteriorates between co-owners. Who is the "true" owner of a group? That is a pact between the owners and the members of the group in which the platform has no voice. The only thing the platform can do is make clear that when disputes between owners arise, ejecting other owners is a race condition. A group owner should be aware that extending ownership to another entity is dangerous and should be done only after proper consideration.

Nevertheless, having more than one owner confers many benefits, but only when the co-owners trust each other.
Best, Marv
