This issue is primarily about the trust relationship the CSM has with CCP, and the risk CCP is taking with these lax repercussions for severe breaches of the NDA. With this motion I would like the CSM to advise CCP to disallow CSM candidates from running if they have been removed from previous CSMs for breaching the NDA.

The relationship between the CSM and CCP is in a large part based on trust. In order for CCP to be able to ask the CSM for advice or get our feedback on ideas, CCP needs to be able to trust that the CSM will keep this information to itself. If CCP cannot rely on the CSM to honour the NDA, they may very well choose not to disclose information at all - which is obviously counterproductive for the whole CSM process.

Based on the current situation, the penalty for breaking the NDA is reasonably light. Only a short (30 or 60 day) ban, and a temporary (less than 2 years it would seem) ban from participating in the CSM. With Eve's level of metagaming, I think it is not unreasonable to imagine that the CSM may one day be told something that is worth 'falling on his sword for' for a CSM member: where the benefits from disclosing NDA information outweigh the temporary punishment.

This would not only greatly damage the CSM's public image, but also risk a fatal blow to the trust relationship between CCP and the CSM. In order to protect the CSM as an institute and to make the punishment 'fit the crime' (risking permanent damage to the relationship between CCP and the CSM), I would like the CSM to advise CCP to dole out the harshest of punishments in these cases. Permanent exclusion from the CSM and possibly even a permanent banfrom Eve of all accounts of the offender (would require discussion with CCP).
