New Design, More Transparency?

The web page of the District of Columbia Bar has an announcement

The D.C. Bar Web site will get a new look later this month. With its  streamlined navigation, new online storefront, and improved search features,  the site provides Bar members and the public greater access to important legal  information.

The dynamic visual design will point users toward the latest, most  relevant news and offer a more interactive experience while conducting legal  research, registering for their next course, or searching for pro bono  opportunities around the District of Columbia.

In addition, the new Marketplace serves as a one-stop shop for members  to buy or download materials made available from some Continuing Legal  Education and Sections programming, and numerous publications such as the Practice Manual. Users also can register  for events in one easy transaction.

Need information while waiting on the platform for the Metro? No  problem. The new site renders in a mobile-friendly interface to make browsing seamless  on any device, from your tablet to your smartphone.

I hope that the new design will provide ready access to all public information regarding the disciplinary process.

For starters, there should be links to all charges and responses. This information is clearly public but not available on the present web page. (Mike Frisch)

Aren't you being a little hypocritical when you yourself avoid reporting cases which could prove embarrassing to your bar disciplinary friends?

Since I do not believe that I pull punches for anyone in the D.C. disciplinary system, I have to answer "no" to the question posed above.
