What does that mean?  I'm on groups and have had posts since then...

It seems to be only the Usenet groups that are affected. I've checked in Opera, and more recent posts are showing there, but as far as I can see, nothing posted through Google Groups since the 25th.

No more profile edits, and all profiles are deleted this upcoming November.

Dunno. New strategy? Closer integration with other Google services?
