Sometimes group admins can block a user forever from a group, even though no action they did was criminal, right?

Doesn't have to be criminal. I'm a fb group administrator who had to not just block but BAN
a user that was harassing several including myself. He's lucky that I didn't press charges.

The answer is a definite yes. Even if no criminal acts were done, groups already have the right to permanently ban users for violating the rules.

Any admin can block any member of a group for as long as they want for any reason. They don't have to only recognize criminal behavior. If they don't like the way you post or respond in a group, they can keep you from doing so. That's what a group is. It's a closed environment and you as a member don't make the rules.

Usually, when you join some group or other, you click that you agree to abide by the terms of some group rules. If you then break the rules, they have every right to end your association with the group. It's that simple. You break the rules, you get booted.

Admins can block anyone, they do not have to give a reason.
The only time that is illegal is if they are explicitly racist etc., such as blocking people based on ethnicity or religion, rather than their online behaviour.
However, a user breaking ANY rule set by a site owner or admin is committing a criminal offence by doing so.
They say you should not do something and you do it anyway - that's a criminal offence under the computer fraud and abuse act (in the US), the computer misuse act (in the UK) and equivalent laws in most other countries.
It's "Unauthorised access" - and it makes no difference how trivial or silly you think the rule is, the admins word is literally "The Law".
There are thousands of people prosecuted and many imprisoned each year just because of what they post online.

Yes! It's a feature that definitely needs work but there are so many groups that it'll be impossible to monitor the legitimacy of a person being kicked out of a group.
