I'd assume that, if they were asked in another public method of discourse, then it'd be similar to posting something to the mainpage.  Otherwise, I'd be kinda leery of posting a private matter on a public forum.  Kinda like what Lana did to get the boot in the first place, ya know?

I asked for consent to discuss publicly (which I've since received). That's exactly what "If I can" means in the previous post.

(I should also note that tumblr asks are public by default and while I chose to answer them privately that was out of concern that whoever reads my tumblr doesn't care about this, not a specific request for privacy)

Anyway, having as mentioned received consent:

Lana argued that the rules do not explicitly ban sharing PMs. I rejected the appeal on the grounds that sharing PMs was only part of the violation, as well as  considering it a common sense interpretation of the rules that PM sharing fails both "don't post private information" and "don't be a dick"

(I can't post the exact text of the appeal because tumblr is a terrible website and private replies to asks are not preserved in any way without third party extensions)

Oh wow that was the extent of their argument?

And somehow, pretty much exactly what I would have expected.
