I want to remove the red message which says

Google Groups will no longer be supporting the Welcome Message feature. Starting 13 January, you won't be able to edit your welcome messages, but you will still be able to view and download the existing content. See this announcement for more information and other options for storing your content. [ Download Welcome Message Content ]

I tried making the message empty and I hoped that this red message would go away after 13 January, but it is still there and I find it ugly.

How can I remove it?

According to this article, Google are switching this feature off during Feb 2011 so maybe you have to wait until they do this.

Alternatively, I don't know if you have done this or are able to do this, but you could switch your Group to the new style which is discussed in detail in this article.
