The Yahoo!group is used for general discussion and to organize social events. The largest contingent of members is centered in the CITY-ONE, California area, with a second large group in CITY-TWO, Oregon. Group was formed in February 1997 as an offshoot from its mother list, NAME-of-mothergroup, when name-of-SOMEONE noticed a surplus of EXAMPLE was being posted, and recognized a need for a more specialized list. The group is currently moderated, and membership requires approval. The group had 200 members on November 6, 2007 and 475 members on May 8, 2010. The first Yahoogroup was deleted by Yahoo for unspecified TOS violations and was replaced by Name-2. The second group was shut down in March 2009 following a REASON-FOR-SHUTDOWN.
