    Seeing the PM will not make everything transparent. You got it backwards.

    after all, shouldn't we all get to judge forum behavior?
    No, I won't post any PM, I didn't start this thread for that purpose. I believe people have the right to know how, and if they're respected as an intellectual behind the curtain... How is it beneficial for members of society, if they can't have enough confidence in their peers to remain honest, practical, unbiased?...

    Exactly. So post the PM.

    It's the most equal solution. Why should Mods be the only ones who have disciplinary power? As an "intellectual" it should be within my rights to participate in discipline decisions, thus the PM in question should be released.

    What you try already has been clearly stated no by Prototype.

    Another option is to open the modbox.

    A third is to to bribe a mod.

    You seem to be a bit single minded, not at all what I would expect from an INTP to make a wanted discovery.

    Or do you have hidden motives? :fear:

    Se above. For Proto to do so would be inconsistent. Opening the modbox would be transparency. Posting the PM seems to just add to what is being criticized.

    Besides there are two PMs in question, people have not even specified the one they would like to see. Or did they, ehh, not sure. Just skimming the thread.

    I think he's just single-minded because it's such an obvious inconsistency that to say "no" sort of invalidates the rest of his argument.

    Why refuse to prick someone in their Achilles Heel?
    it's pretty typical for INTPs to see the obvious flaw and stab right for it.
    No sense in wasting energy arguing, after the argument is already fundamentally flawed.

    ... but honestly, I don't even care much about the topic, it's just funny how much has been generated over this already, and related to this mysterious PM no one seems to know anything about!

    For that matter, all private messages should also be made public. It would help solve this issue.


    And the only reason why I voted "no" on the poll is because I deeply fear the administrators' retribution.

    Thank you.

    We'll release your pet turtle now, just as we promised.
