Removing unwanted Newsgroups

Hi all,
I wanted to find out how I could move servers and remove some unwanted newsgroups.
When I created the my current news service, I had used the active file from a peer server that had over 15000 bogus (hipcrime) newsgroups created as well. These are now on my server as well. How do I remove all these unwanted newsgroups? The man page for ctlinnd suggests that doing a rmgroup will generate an e-mail sent to the peers?
I am sure that I am missing something really obvious - but I don't want to tick off my peer news administrators with 25K rmgroup notices etc.
Thanks in advance for your help.
