However, you're not allowed to discuss your secret pair with anyone or speculate as to who else may be in a secret pair.

The issue with this is that especially in LoL you were left with people so obviously hinting at other pairs that they would get known easily. You were also left with people wanting to get others out for pair-related reasons but not being able to state those reasons.

Was the idea poorly executed? Yeah. But nobody knew that beforehand. It wasn't really brought up (nor did it seem to be occurring) in Eon.
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.

i think the main problem with LoL was that we all knew the pairs were from separate starting tribes so it heavily encouraged a pagong strategy to eliminate all pairs

I think the reason it wasn't a problem in Eon was because the pairs were kept on separate tribes until the final 14, which is 10 boots into the game. Pairs were placed on the same tribe as early as F18 in LoL, which was after only 2 rounds.

ID guesses are a thing anyway. Like if you think "OMG this Porunga person...is definitely drench" banning it being typed in confessional for people to laugh at you changes nothing.

Because you can think things without confessionalizing them.
