What is the point of the petition?
LinkedIn put these two questions for group owners on LinkedIn Answers a couple of days ago:
What are the key features you need to manage your LinkedIn group?
How can LinkedIn Groups managers best work with each other and LinkedIn?
Thank you for contacting LinkedIn Customer Support. We understand that you may be inconvenienced by this change to the site. We do ask that you do not set up another account in order to have more groups, this is being tracked as well and we are watching for those types of actions as wells.
If you have any further questions, please just let me know.

I can't believe you are limiting the number of groups a person can
belong to. This has to piss off users most dedicated to linked in. I
guess I'll have to create another account and keep half my groups in
it. You would piss people off less if you charged for having unlimited
group. This is the worst news I've had all year. This is the first
step to a company being qualified as "Evil" Give me a call if you want
to talk this over.

Same issue - after over a decade of networking I have been a part of MANY groups. I was shocked to see a warning that I'm close to my "limit". Many of the groups I'm in are for professional certifications - should I drop those? Should I drop the ones I'm on the board of? Should I drop the ones my customers are managing and want me to keep an eye on? If they are closed networks that require an approval to join, how does LinkedIn need to police beyond that? This is heartbreaking - it stops me from doing my job.
