I suspect that if you look at Usenet newsgroup data that you'll find
quite a lot of examples of this sort of thing. A specific variation
on this that I've seen twice involves, after a series of acrimonious
arguments, a new group being formed from a small subset of the
members of the old group, such that only a small fraction of the old
group is informed of the existence of the new.
(To make it more interesting, in one of these cases the group subset
actually appropriated a newsgroup for a completely unrelated topic
that hadn't attracted any traffic in a while, rather than creating a
new one. :) )
