What Is a PII, and How Did My Post Violate the Forum Guidelines ?

I just noticed a reply I posted <here> in the Norton Tech Outpost yesterday was edited by a Forum Moderator for violating the Norton Community Participation Guidelines. It now reads:
Malwarebytes xxxx [PII removed by Admin] just posted in Version 4.0 - Updating Definitions that the "Check for Updates" link located at Settings | About | Version Information "will check for all update types (Malwarebytes version, component package and database package)."
In my original post, "Malwarebytes xxxx" simply said "Malwarebytes employee LiquidTension". What is a PII (or did they mean PPI for private personal information), and why would posting the username of a Malwarebytes employee violate the Norton Community Participation Guidelines when the quote was taken directly from a reply LiquidTension posted in the Malwarebytes Support forum that anyone in the general public can view?

Yes, thank you peterweb
sorry Imacri, I was too quick on that one, I see now it was their public forums account name.
