Salvador Cordova recently posted in Noyau the contents of a private email he received from Barry.
Administrator Neil Rickert thanks Salvador for posting it and suggests an OP.
Administrator Alan Fox suggests an OP.
Administrator and site owner Elizabeth Liddle suggests an OP.
None of them call into question the wisdom of posting the contents of private emails on the site.
Extremely poor judgment by them all.
Salvador indicates his willingness to publish more of his private correspondence with Barry and does so.
Elizabeth creates an OP which includes some of the contents of the original private email.
One can only speculate how things might have been different if it wasn’t Barry Arrington’s private correspondence that was being published.
I’d like to propose a rule that prohibits publishing the contents of private correspondence on this site without the permission of all parties to the correspondence.
Such a rule should not be necessary here but recent events clearly indicate otherwise.
A sad few days in the history of TSZ. Please publish such a rule and let’s move on.
