Under the forum rules which we all had to click "agreed" to be registered here " 2) Posting trash talk in other forums or blogs that directs or points unwelcome "visitors" to harass the Ehell forum or encourages a forum war in any way. "
If the group is private, how would the mods know who posted and or created problems for e-hell. Is everyone belonging to the group being treated as though they are spewing hatred on FB? Which again is a HUGE assumption here.
Because they were sent posts from the secret forum? http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=107408.msg2550202#msg2550202
The Dame posted a few excerpts of PMs too (with permission). I am guessing just by the nature of the group (to bash EHellions) is falls against the rules. "People got banned for a variety of reasons...most notably if they did anything that aided, abetted, facilitated, condoned or directly participated in a group whose whole sole raison d'tre was to cyberbully, humiliate and harass people on Ehell the group deemed were "annoying". "
Also, Tychabrae asks "I'd like to add, if a group exists that contains members of Ehell, how can they be "unwanted visitors"?" Anyone causing trouble for EHell would be an unwelcome visitor in my book.. and aparently in the Dame's as well.

Hi, I heard you were asking about a chat group or friends group? Can you tell me a bit about yourself, and the ehell names of 3 or 4 posters you agree with, and 3 or 4 posters you disagree with , a few that you think they're not too stable, and a few you admire.

Well, You have over 3,000 posts. No one stands out that you agree with, or that you shake your head at? There is a group, but it's not an etiquette group at all. We'd just like to get a sense of who you are, and if you'd fit in.
These personal messages you mean? Seems to me that Wry Exchange was doing exactly what she said she was doing - trying to get a feel for who Scubadog is, she didn't just ask negatives did she? While 'not too stable' may not be the best choice of words we all know too well that there are posters here with views and opinions way outside the norm who others may consider 'crackpots'.
I like to give the benefit of the doubt and Wry could just as easily be recruiting for a member fan club as a troll group or, you know, just a group of like minded individuals who might want to chat about things other than the allowed topics here.
