Group Closure and Sale

The group was closed on May 13th, 2013 after it was revealed that group members had been severely breaking site policy on "bumping" and low quality posting. This was revealed in a thread which was moved to the Rules, Announcements, News, and Feedback section and a member was offering a service to Marketers members to have their threads bumped. Many member's accounts were accidentally deleted upon the group closure and most were eventually recovered.

The group was purchased by Cryptic and remained a blank group for approximately a month, until June of 2013. In June, 2013, the group was reformed into The Brotherhood.
