I hate using really emotive words like 'thug' for plants. Plants are what they are, some are more vigorous than others, but a vigorous plant may be just what you need for your poor soil, so I really don't think it's helpful to apply such emotive terms, they're just not accurate or helpful. I have that Hellebore self seeded in my garden and I really don't think it a problem, have many things in my garden which are much, much more invasive, but still grow them because they are useful one way or another. As for stinking. I've never noticed.
