All you've said is the exact same things that have already been said,
including that not everyone will see your post if you use Google
Groups. Why use something that unnecessarily restricts your audience,
when non-restrictive posting methods work just fine?

just informing people of the fact that posting from GG will reduce
your potential response sources.
