Deputies are also posters.
If 2 and 4 are ok, I think all of them should be ok.
I would hope I'd never use the option, since personally I think none are ok, and I'd hate to break my own personal code of honor.
But we're posters, Dr. Bob. We're helping you out because we care about Babble. But that doesn't make a separate standard fair or appropriate.
To me, deputies being able to take heat means we should be able to refrain from posting in kind. To me, it doesn't mean that we deserve abuse just because we volunteered to help you out in a mentally stressful position that is difficult enough as it is without knowing that you think we deserve a special lack of protection.
If it's not ok for Poster A to tell Poster B that they don't like them, I don't think it's ok for Poster A to tell Poster B (who just happens to also have answered your request for volunteers) that they don't like them.
It's not fair under any definition of the word that I know of.
