How to join Dgroups. NOTE: with DGroups you can create sub-communities for more focused discussions of themes, so these sub communities can discuss their on their own, then share with the larger 'mother' community, the synthesis of their discussions. However, at any time, a user can choose to send their message to a sub-community or to all members of the mother community (you automatically become a member of the mother community if you join a sub-community).
