Can't Leave Group - Group Setttings
1
When I try to leave a group, I get the message "you can't leave this group because the group's settings prevent members from leaving." 

I've read that "If you’re signed in to a work or school account, you can't leave any group that your administrator has set to include all members." https://support.google.com/groups/answer/46608?hl=en

But this is a personal account, and is neither school nor work. Any ideas?

Same issue here. I'm in a couple of groups I've neves asked to join. They belong to a school (with which I have no relationship with or contact), maybe that's why they have the "power" to not allow members to exit the group. The issue is that that power should only be applicable to email accounts within that org...

I'm also running into this issue. I have no idea how I got added to this group and I tried contacting the group, but the e-mail just bounces back:
This is my personal e-mail so I'm not associated with any organization. It seems so screwy that you can be added to groups, but you can't remove yourself. That seems like a really bad defect or bad design.
