A reason for value discussion to exist in clubs is because there's a demand for transparancy in shiny values.
Value discussion belongs in the value advice thread, but that does not mean that it shouldn't be allowed in clubs.
That's like saying "Plants belong in the outdoors, so having plants indoors is not allowed."
Usually I'm on board with the actions of staff members as they are aimed to improve the game/community as a whole.
Removal/Censorship of Value Discussion is one of my main irks when it comes to staff-made rules, as it's completely unfounded and baseless.
I'd like to know, doesn't have to be directly from you Bear since I'm well aware you did not make this rule, Why is this rule in place?
Before anyone answers, the answer I will not accept is "Shiny traders may spread false information to manipulate the market."
The reason why I don't accept that answer is that it's simply not true, due to the sheer size of the market.
