I see this isn't the most actively watched page on meta! - However, I thought it might be useful for me to re-iterate a question that I've put to you ombudsfolk via email, not being particularly private....
I was wondering if the ombudsman commission has any opinion as to the propriety of an individual checkuser telling an editor (me!) when they have been checked, by whom, and for what rationale.
I have understood that the commission is not minded to instruct the release of such information, but I'm wondering if that implies a general restriction or not....
thanks in advance!

- My understanding of the policy is that such disclosure is at the discretion of the individual checkusers. If you were to ask me, "How many times have I been checked, and by whom?" I would decline to answer, but if you gave me a brief note to whom it may concern, asking to discuss such checks, I would forward it to those checkusers who show up in the log next to your name (if any, of course).
