Disclosure. Deception. Duplicity. Defamation.

From my point of view, at least, we're having a good, constructive conversation about this over at Talking Philosophy ... arising from the #MTRsues controversy. Do feel free to join in. I'm not sure that we're going to reach any consensus, but we might at least get some more clarity on issues to do with what public figures should disclose about themselves, and, conversely, what it's legitimate for us to disclose about them and/or speculate about concerning them.
