Why don't you just have one or two 'managers' of the site, and set it so that you can't have random people putting up what they like?

Bit more work, but if he stays part of the group you're going to have a problem.

This happens everywhere not just FB. My Dad has become the BAD GUY by keeping committee stuff private and confidential and another committee member tittle tattling to make my dad look bad... it was a serious issue about a certain volunteer's suitabilty to be involved, reluctance to CRB check, you can guess the rest.

All you can and should do as either a casual group or formal committee is do things by the book... however, I do not think that everything should wait until the AGM especially as the situation now has changed.

Posting private messages should mean instant ejection from the group pending enquiry. That much only should be made public. No mentioning of names (it will be obvious) but a defense of procedure and being seen to be doing something.

Not sure that makes sense, YANBU.

Unfortunately, introducing a rule will work against the morale of the group... so the wording must be clear "no personal irrelevent shit" = low morale, "excessive posting of unrelated material will result in it being deleted in the first instance, a warning in the second and ejection from the FB page in the third" is more open ended. It's very tricky.

By the way, problems need solving as they happen... can you imagine what the reaction would be if MNHQ posted a statement saying "Please wait until our AGM in October before we even consider discussing this issue let alone solving it"???!!

Suggest to him that he starts his own group?
