consider just how many people delayed transferring their group till "the right time" and Yahoo stompped on that, big time.
Consider that the sudden influx of yahoo groups' owners suddenly deciding, in one or two days, to move to groups.io.
Still that's an issue caused by yahoo. Finally consider where all of the suddenly needed server/archival/backup and other groups.io paid for services are going to come from.
Mark had two choices, Ignore the obvious requirement for infrastructure expansion or let everyone into an undersized  and unreliable system.
Please, as with refugees, new groups need "food and lodging" of a sort, hardware and storage/backup.  There is always a cost when new burdens are accepted.
