Whilst I think it's wonderful that the messages on deleted threads are funny,

this is not English:

"Message from MNHQ: Deleted for possible breaking all the rules, but mainly for speculation, goading and trollery."

"possibly breaking" or "possible breaking of" or "breaking of all possible rules"


(mainly just wanted to show what a funny note it was)

Trollery is a word.

It's a very new word, but it is a word.

Helen is a pedant when it comes to words being used incorrectly.

Trollery was being used perfectly correctly there - and when a word is as new as that you have to allow people some leeway while its precise meaning and correct usage settles down.
