Re: TPF Transparency Report
Message ID:
Further to what I said before...

While not naming names is good, I feel that there should be a lot more detail on 
the alleged crime, where it is spelled out exactly what was said that was 
considered to be a problem.

The main announcement can omit it but there should be a published supplement 
that has it.

That way the community has the evidence upon which the verdict was reached, 
including its seriousness, and not just the highly subjective interpretations.
