No lobbies connect to dedicated server

I have been running a dedicated server for some time now and it is only utilized once I have connected a lobby of my own. I want it to be used by any lobby that hits 'start game' (given the randomness of which server valve picks I understand it may not choose mine) and my question is simple: How do I accomplish this?

I think I have done everything properly, but no one connects to the server unless they are in a lobby that I have created and I have used mm_dedicated_force_servers or sv_search_key.

OS: Debian Lenny i386
CPU: Pentium D 3GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR2-667
Start up command:
./srcds_run -game left4dead2 -autoupdate -ip -port 27015 -maxplayers 8 +exec server.cfg
MODS: MetaMod/SourceMod

// Server Name
hostname "xxxx"
sv_search_key "xxxx"

// Admin and Server Passsword
rcon_password "xxxx"
//sv_password ""

// Server Admin Email
sv_contact "xxxx"

// Server Logging
sv_log_onefile 0 //Log server information to only one file.
sv_logbans 1 //Log server bans in the server logs.
sv_logecho 1 //Echo log information to the console.
sv_logfile 1 //Log server information in the log file.
sv_logflush 0 //Flush the log file to disk on each write (slow).
sv_logsdir logs //Folder in the game directory where server logs will be stored.

// Executable Config Files
exec banned_user.cfg
exec banned_ip.cfg
If you remove the commands
sv_steamgroup_exclusive 0
sv_steamgroup xxxxxx
from server.cfg your server will be open to everyone. Those commands will stop anyone from entering until a group member enters first. I can't wait until lol554 comes to tell me I'm wrong. But at least this way you will get an answer from the great one.
