      Description

      As commented by Jeremy Hopkins and Dave Laurie in MDL-66952, the default group icon should not be displayed in forum posts, as it serves no purpose and is confusing for users.

      If a teacher wants groups to be shown in forum posts, then they add a group picture; otherwise not. (Also, there should be no need for the setting 'Hide picture' as raised in MDL-48269).
