They do have banded touranments that only allow individuals within a certain rating, say 1100-1200 to enter. You could always join one of those and talk to your opponents via pm.
Or you could create private tourament, and only players you invited would be allowed to join. Games could also be discussed in a private forum.
Personally, I think the best way to learn would be playing people rated a bit above you, (perhaps 1400), as they would be able to explain themselves a bit better.
The problem with a bunch of 1100 rated players all discussing their games is that they may all miss some fundamental mistakes, and not really understand what they are doing wrong.
If you are interested in playing an unrated game with a stronger player who could explain his moves, you can send me a game at some point.
