Hush rule and last year's authors board

In last year’s IFCOMP authors boards, there were a ton of threads:

  1. Many authors had summaries and reviews of the other games
  2. There were threads about hidden material in games
  3. There were discussions about games breaking ifcomp rules
  4. There were interviews of authors
  5. There were jokes
  6. There was a thread were everyone who was nervous could get positive feedback about their game.
  7. There were threads reviewing the ifcomp reviewers

Which of these threads would be appropriate for public discussion? Was there anything on the author board that would not be appropriate in a public forum?

If there is public discussion, will there still be a private forum for the material not suitable for public discussion?
