Public Statement  
So apparently I really am the one at fault here. The "Big Brother" aspects of the e-mail I received from the hogwartsishome moderators are just copypasta from the mod rules. I read them in the e-mail and assumed that the moderators were implying that I had done these things, including the phrase:

This means that, though you may want to rant about something in your personal journey [sic], you are asked not to.

From this, I assumed that my personal journal had been a topic of discussion. Likewise, from the following quote:

If you're speaking as an official, the rules of conduct apply, whether the conversation takes place on livejournal or through an outside service, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Chat or email.

I assumed that my Twitter would be under surveillance for violations of this code of conduct.

As these are actually copypasta phrases, though, they were likely not meant in such a targeted manner. I wish I had realized this. One could argue, had I been intimately familiar with the HiH Officials' Rules, I would have realized this. To that, I have no defense.

These are the rules that HiH Officials have to abide by. I have been an HiH Official for 2 years, since Term XII. Recently complaints have come to light that I am not doing honor by my office of Gryffindor Prefect due to my conduct. I'm sorry if my actions have hurt anyone, and I will heretofore endeavor by my behavior to honor the position of prefect and the House of Godric Gryffindor.

Comment to be re-added (or added anew) to my friends list. The content of my livejournal is mostly related to my real life and not to hogwartsishome, Brokeback Mountain, or any fannish activity.

It's already in the past for me. I'm really sorry about the one comment I made in chat, about PMs. It was meant as a joke, and not a barb, but I can see how it was misread, and I can assure you I'll be far more careful about what I say from now on. I've been reminded that I hold what amounts to a representative political position.

Anna and I have been discussing some solutions to the charity problem. Perhaps I should pop into chat and discuss it with you guys.

I think at this point, not knowing about the drama is a good thing. Long list short: 1.) I was reported to the mods for abuse of power 2.) I was caught violating the HiH rating in Gryffindor chat, 3.) I was caught badmouthing another HiH member in Gryffindor chat, 4.) I was caught responding rudely to another HiH members on my Twitter, 5.) I misinterpreted the moderator response to these transgressions (as described above).
