Glad everyone is on the same page but please use precise language. These two statements don't actually say anything, since the mods already believe they are "transparent" and have given sufficient explanation in the Corey Feldman thread. At best we'll get a slightly more detailed explanation in the bans thread, followed by a silencing of debate with "you had a chance to propose rules changes" once this is all over.
For example, instead of saying "a suitable explanation" which is open to interpretation, say something concrete. Like: posts that resulted in a ban must be linked to in the ban reason and left up for all users to see for a period of 2 days unless leaving the post would result in extreme disruption or legal consequences for the forum (personal information, serious death threats, advertising spam). Or something like: All bans should be allowed a discussion thread if a poster requests one. If 2/3rds of the posters believe the decision to be unacceptable, than the mod who made the decision should be subjected to popular recall.
This "rules suggestion" idea is obviously strictly limited and controlled, and most likely is more to calm the userbase and defuse anger . Even so, we have to do our bests with the limited power that we have. Please be more careful and more creative MTF userbase, we may do something despite all odds
