Now we get to the core of things. You say, and from your perspective you are right, that unveiling certain information, if it is for a good cause, is not unethical and permitted. It happens all the time, and yes, that is good. But is this what really happened?
No, Mr. Ramadoss, this is what didn't happen.
The person who leaked the proposal certainly didn't act in good faith, but wanted to create more confusion, suggesting that there was an 'ultra' secret conspiracy going on, while that was clearly not the case. There is no evidence of that anywhere. In the legal sense: there was only speech of a proposal subject to vote. The way this leaked proposal was exploited, and later presented on this very site, was unethical and only served one particular party. This bad proposal became a tool in the hands of those who wanted to make the case that the Algeo supporters had a secret agenda, that Algeo & Co wanted to take your voting right away. That Mr. Ramadoss is the unethical part of it. Please do me favor and check all the archives and all the information Mr. Rozman has on his site and check and re-check.
So to the letter of the law it was an offence, and ethically speaking it was an offence as well, and many, including yourself fell into the trap. It was a brilliant move, I must admit, more than one year after the event we are still talking about it, when can we finally put it to rest Mr. Ramadoss?
