Jason,

You should also be aware that there are a number of 
people here such as myself that use Google Groups for 
various reasons and there is concurrently some discussion 
of this in other threads including the correction of
just plain erroneous info about GG that has been
propagated here.

AFAIK, there is no real definition of "regular" nor 
any count of how many of them (whoever "them" is) that 
ignore GG.  Pretty obviously "crap user interface" is 
in the eye of the beholder and the login requirement 
is a personal issue.
