In addition to the fact that “rusi” evidently does not hold that
position, the Virtualenv project <URL:> has
its official discussion forum hosted at Google Groups, and the above
quote merely points that out.

One can recommend strongly against Google Groups in general as a
dreadful service, while still directing people to the official
discussion forum for a particular project which has made the (to
whatever degree misguided) decision to use that service.
