To All Members - Regarding Bounce Probes
First, if you receive a bounce probe message and activate the "unbounce" link, rest assured that does work. I thought that Groups.io sent an automated response back confirming you are unbounced, but if they do not, PLEASE, please, please assume that you are if you did not receive any error message when activating the unbounce link.
There is nothing that Group Administration, on any group, can do to unbounce members. The whole idea behind a bounce probe is to not only detect that an e-mail address is existent, but that someone's reading it and reacting to content. That is something that only the member who receives a bounce probe can do.
For those who want additional information about how bouncing works, and from the Group Admin perspective, see this page from the Groups.io Owner's Manual, paying particular attention to the last line that starts with, "Important!" https://groups.io/helpcenter/ownersmanual/1/additional-information/groups-io-bounce-handling
Please do not send test messages to see if you are unbounced. If you receive a single message that anyone has sent, you are unbounced, and our traffic is high enough that messages tend to come through pretty regularly.

[Regarding the Supreme Court refusing to hear the case brought by Texas to overturn the votes certified by 4 states:] Pleased with the SCOTUS ruling, but also immediately slightly terrified of where this crazy train goes next. We should know by now there’s a bottomless supply of crazy.
