In my experience this has not been an issue and I don't believe we
have evidence of that fact. I do believe that group dynamics are
important and believe that throwing out the entire group is going to
be dangerous. Without a strong demonstrated need, I believe that the
potential harm of such a procedure outweighs any potential good.
