To me, adults ought to be able to discuss things in an open way, and not act like high school kids sending each other notes. Yeah, I might get my feelings hurt for a bit when someone confronts me, but ultimately it's much better because I know where I stand. All the mindgames is just useless to me. I think a lot of heartache would be saved if more people were just open and honest with each other, and not always interested in keeping secrets or putting on a front. That stuff is so lame.
    Yes, secrets are not worth keeping.

    Who watches the watchmen? Shouldn't the modbox follow the same rules as the general forum? Most of the discussion I see center around the moderators thinking it was private, not that this will not happen again.

    Now that you've said this, that metaphor was probably a lousy one in that sense.

    After all, we're not your teachers.
    And you're not our children.
    We're peers and adults.

    Different dynamic.

    If we go that far, we'll have to start asking who watches the watchmen who watch the watchmen. Boy, what a headache.

    Please don't read too much into that.

    This conversation is centering around the privacy issue because if some of you were having private conversations in PM or wherever else, we would not be moderating them. Because we wouldn't know about them.

    So it would be none of our business until someone posted them publicly or we received word someone was harassing others via PM with the comments.

    Certainly I have my own personal/moral convictions and opinions on the whole matter beside policy, as do the other mods and you and anyone else who has posted here -- based each on our personal knowledge and experience of what happened. I've also got the distinct impression that it doesn't much matter what anyone might say in regards to justifying their own behavior/decisions in the matter, the lines have already been drawn.

    That's one reason why we end up discussing practical policy rather than having a public "soul baring" that would end up probably just polarizing things even further.

    On a sidenote, Jeffster, I think you might be corroding a digit in your MBTI array.

    I've thought this for some time now, but didn't have the direct representation (perhaps a controversial topic (such that the Zergling issue has become...) bubbles more of your ostensible identity to the surface of your online personality) available to make a concerted deduction.


    You just became slightly more curious to me, Jeffster.

    Hahaha...

    Jennifer, you're clearly an N.

    I'll leave it up for posterity.

    Well, I'm confused. I think you just doubly confused the names! Or not. Either way, nice smokescreen job.

    I confused Jeffster's writing for Jennifer's, as it was steeped in sugary metaphor and aromatic phrasing - features I would normally link to Jennifer's pen.

    Nevertheless, I blundered.

    It happens. Frequently.
