Elegantly done


I don't usually post about OTO controversies; I'm a permanent Minerval (basically a guest), have strong personal biases toward OTO's leaders, am completely out of the loop on the details of such controversies...and anyway, OTO is by design a monarchy, so what's to discuss?

That said, I've noted a dilemma for the leadership when controversy of any sort arises in OTO. Unlike AC, our leaders don't want to rely on "It's a monarchy, now shut your pie-hole" as a response; OTOH, they're committed to preserving the privacy and dignity of individual members. So when controversy of a particularly painful sort arises, what can you do?

Something like this:


Some may feel that it's a sign of weakness that such a statement "needed" to be made. I strongly disagree; it's virtually the only way to respond when painful decisions have been made, and one isn't free to elaborate on the reasons for them.

Anyway, as I posted elsewhere, elegantly done. Hear, hear.

P.S. A major reason I post this is because I have nothing whatsoever to gain from doing so...hence I'm clearly doing it without either fear of punishment or hope of reward. Hell, most of 'em don't even like me. ;)
