Right, but the point is… we know no one cares about user groups :-) We're
trying to get people to care about user groups ;-). In particular, we're
trying to empower user groups and one way to do that is to give them a
spotlight of sorts.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "way too many". Can you have too many
user groups? You can certainly have a hard time keeping track of them all
(and keeping the list current), but that's a different story…
