Breaking News!We, the open letter to the authors of the open letter to FD authors, speaking on behalf of the community, demand to know the contents of the private conversations between said authors and Zac.
As we understand, some or all of the authors of the open letter have had conversation with FD based on this statement by ryan_m
We find this lack of open communication by those who claim to represent the community and are themselves demanding more open communication from FD, frankly speaking, disturbing.
We demand that the contents of those discussions are published publicly for consumption by the community and not locked away behind closed doors.

An "unnamed source" today informed us that NOT ONLY did Zac talk to FDev PRIOR to talking to the authors of the Open Letter, but that was also PRIOR to the open letter even being written!
Some are now even saying that the so called "open letter" was in fact a "closed letter" which only later became "open."
While those claims could not be verified, another insider has contacted us to claim that the "open letter" was originally a series of secrete communications between the two parties, and that the open letter was actually one of those correspondences which was released BY ACCIDENT.
These revelations have rocked the player base, and several players have now promised to compose their own "open letters," but then refuse to release them. This has also lead to a backlash from other players who clearly feel that un-released letters just can't be considered "open."
On top of all of this, in a shocking move the PVP Alliance (aka Greifers Anonymous) have published an official press release stating that in retaliation for this situation, they will for the foreseeable future spend all their time PVPing in systems which nobody visits.
