#2143: Forum "Post a New Topic" Group name dropdown menu

 When posting directly to the Forum section (not through a specific Group
 Forum)using "Post a New Topic", there is a dropdown menu to select which
 group Forum to put the new topic in.

 PROBLEM: The dropdown defaults to the first group in alphabetical order,
 and if a user is not paying attention, they will add their post to that
 group's Forum whether they intend to or not.

 SOLUTION: Add a non-selectable instruction line in the default display of
 the dropdown list that says something like "Select a Group". Then, if a
 user tries to post their Topic without selecting a group, a message will
 pop-up telling them they have to select a group.

 This will help keep users from posting to the wrong group as well as force
 them to become familiar with all of the group options.
