Default Why can't all members post in the public forum TFIY?

So I got a comment from Jerome that was this question. I don't want to answer in comments and figured others might not know the way it works.

The member who started the thread can post as well as mods/admins. It's public like the threads in the staff forum, but not open to all posts.

Jerome knows the answer. He doesn't like the answer.

I got the same comments. Told him to start his own thread here in TSO.

And it's somehow impossible to start a peanut gallery thread on the topic?
Is that the problem?

I mean there needs to a be a way for someone to talk to mods and admins without others filling up the thread.
If it can't be done in public it would have to be done in private.

^ What Butters said..... The Floor Is Yours, not The Floor Is Everyones.

The forum title makes it exclusive for a reason: not everyone needs to be involved, in the actual thread.

Opening it up to everyone would just create a lot of extraneous chatter. Especially from the usual overbearing blowhards, from the failed forum. It’s like allowing a bunch of people, with STDs, to crash a small invitation-only orgy. Some people need to keep their STDs to themselves.

Jerome, just do what I do. Any time you want to post in a forum that you can't then you just hit report post and post it in the report.

That is silly, it separates the idea from the thread one is meaning to interact with.
