I'm going to chalk this up as one of the joys of censorship. Hadn't read the PM myself yet, but I've answered it now. And I wouldn't mind posting my reply here in public too, if that would help to set a few things straight.
My messages were probably inappropriate, but I could have been told that and we could have had an open discussion about it. Simply deleting them without a word, then locking the thread and refusing to come out for that seems unacceptable to me, but I guess that is all part of the new way of running things around here. Even in this thread there is another call to lock or delete it, more signs on the wall.
I think I can understand bulek's reasons for starting this thread, but he could have just asked the person that made him an admin in private and be done with it. I don't consider lmce3000's PM a flame, he just seems to be confused by what is going on and asking a question to clear things up for him. Private messages however do not mean that their contents are secret in my opinion, but by posting them publicly you do hang someone out to dry which is not always a good thing.
