Hello L Peter,

I am so sorry that you had that experience.

To leave the Music Notation CG, use this link:

I think the UX bug is this: I think you see the “leave” link on the group’s home page ONLY
if you are (1) in the group and (2) logged in. So my guess is that you were not logged in, 
in which case you would only see a “join” link and not a “leave” link.

Apologies again for the frustration. Your report will help us fix the site,
