It's really annoying when I get all excited about new posts, and then I find out it's just two people using a shittier version of pms while speaking in different languages.

They're not exactly analogous to PMs though.

Namely, they are publicly available information, therefore you don't get in trouble for passing on a key. (you aren't showing a screen or forwarding a pm, but you can essentially 'unlock' things for other people, say upon a death... or ensuring a message posted via proxy came from the appropriate person.)

But what's actually the point? I really don't get it at all. Also AustinFathman, we are allowed to print out a screen and show it to people and we are allowed to verbatim quote communications with other players, (though I still have no clue how to begin understanding what's going on, so there might still be arguments for using cryptography)

Chiming in to say I'm also super confused.

aok said "You may not show anyone a computer/phone screen, forward a screenshot, or repeat/copy verbatim communication from god (Exception: private rules clarifications may be copied verbatim). You may print out a computer/phone screen to show, and you may copy verbatim communication with other players."

So I'm not sure what cryptography lets you do that pms wouldn't.
