Please refactor after walking a mile in my moccasins.
Seriously, the trouble is that the prohibition on sharing personal correspondence is being applied in such an obviously cabal-serving and hypocritical way, so obviously that no third party can take the moral claims seriously.
Didn't Durova herself
post somebody's e-mails to the main mailing list around the time of the !! fiasco, then apologize, saying she'd meant to send them to the now infamous "sooper sekrit" list?
Didn't Elonka herself
manipulate Krimpet into posting a certain contributors' real world identity onto Wikipedia?
While the e-mails which have been suppressed in the name of privacy contained no private information at all, but were only agitating against others.
Meanwhile, exposing pseudonymous editors' real world identities, once thought unacceptable, is not only tolerated, but encouraged and practiced
by arbitrators themselves, who solicit, cherish, curate and publish attack farms against their own contributors.
