I find it interesting that you would have even thought that the mod might have misled a player and changed an answer, especially in an open, non-bastard game.

This is a pointless discussion but it has nothing to do with balance, just how a semi-open setup with no bastardry should work.
You’re right it isn’t balance. It’s your interpretation of semi-open, and your stubbornness in thinking that the way you interpret things or the way you think is optimal is the only correct way of doing things. Interesting you are attempting to turn everyone away from discussing this.

Why couldn't someone of any alignment ask the mod a question by pm, then ask the same question in thread because they want to be seen asking the question, or because they want the answer public, even if they know the answer would be no comment?

Why is this so unlikely from scum!Sabrar?

Wait, where did BoomFrog claim he’s not doing a gambit?

are not very good at guessing what questions I would ask. I suggest not spending too much time on this.
? Hmmm. Note: second attempt.

Disagree, and disagree. For example WoT3 should have caught no one off guard (except perhaps Mark) so it's not essential that the gambit do so. And gambits have other benefits. See here
