We have a similar group, where no ads or "Buy-My-Book" auto-posting Spammers are allowed.  We promote each other's books, discuss the industry, marketing challenges and field Questions, Answers and discussions about our industry.  It certainly is much more pleasant when you eliminate the Spam.  Authors Pay it Forward Project is who we are and how we roll.  :)
