I still use AR groups and there are some I need to eliminate because they are no longer relevant.  That said, I still have my favorites:  both groups and moderators but naming favorites is not a wise idea  for fear of forgetting someone/some group. The number?  I could look I guess but it's raining right now as I leave this answer I am wondering if it will stop anytime soon.  Southern Californians and precipitation don't mix well together.

David,

I use them, when the spirit moves me...and like Michael Jacobs the rain numbs our senses, although we are so happy for the liquid sunshine that will feed our reservoirs and resuscitate our newest burnt barren mountain.  Happy Thanksgiving!  A

I no longer utilize groups at all.
To much of my labor involved in identifying the ones that are active and have content that is beneficial.

If you wish to create a group, or find a group populated with innovative thinkers, challenge takers, convention challengers. let me know.

This is what everyone says they want, but the reality is such endeavors is simply not in their wheelhouse.
