    initial v1  
    1 There are other reasons users @mention a someone than to let them know. Users @mention somone just to discuss them with other private group members, so there is a link to the @mentioned user. Our users definitely expect a private group to be just that, private and to not leak content and notify non group members no matter what they type in a post. This is how other social networking sites & apps generally treat non-public groups and messaging. Also, how would you actually go about forbidding mentions in any practical way? People can type whatever they want in a post and @mentions are found by pattern matching & queries after the fact.
