If we'd discussed all that stuff publicly, it wouldn't be as OMFGPOW when they went live. You can't really understand where I'm/we're coming from unless you have first-hand experience. xD
Well, obviously the officials do not know how it is going to affect an ordinary member.
Think of it this way. Do you think it is right for your government to sneak behind your back like Nixon and the Watergate incident (extreme example, but think of it that way).
Yep, and judging by the poll for the recent forum layout change, it sure got a "OMFGPOW", didn't it? I think Prof. Geoffrey was so amazed he left.
