This lack of communication is entirely my fault, I'm afraid. When the truth about Wizzard arose, it was discussed in the Moderator's forum and - for fairly obvious reasons - things discussed there are deemed private. No Moderator would break a confidence, just_another_fe, so I suspect your questions left them in a very uncomfortable position. I apologize both to you and to our Moderators for leaving this issue in "private mode."
Privacy is a big issue, though. We don't have a whole lot of rules at Passions, but we do have a few. And where there are rules there will be people who break them. Sometimes out of ignorance of the rules, sometimes out of anger, and sometimes just out of spite. Often the infractions are public simply because everyone else who posts here can see them. But it's always been our policy to not make them public when they don't have to be. No one wants to have a finger pointed at them.
To be frank, it's a bit of a fine line the Moderators have to walk. On the one hand, we always want to be open and honest to all of the Members of Passions. But we still need to respect everyone's privacy. If you wrote a post asking if so-and-so was really sleeping with such-and-such, that would be a very obvious invasion of privacy and your posts would be deleted. Quickly. It may be less obvious that asking why someone was banned from the forums is just as much an invasion of their privacy. But it is, and we generally won't answer the question, and certainly not in public without good reason.
Suffice it to say that Wizzard was banned for very good reasons, and for the safety of all our Members. Such drastic measures are rarely taken at Passions, and never taken lightly. But sometimes they are necessary.
