Abstract: The purpose of this note is to explore two recently discovered lattice-ordered groups, and to establish that they are $ l$-simple, i.e., have no proper $ l$-ideals. These groups are ``pathologically $ o-2$-transitive'' ordered permutation groups acting on the real line. The two groups exhibit even nastier properties than previous pathological groups, and serve as counterex-amples to several conjectures about $ l$-groups.
