Current public discourse has tremendously raised the perceived cost of
being in the wrong.  Typically, it is possible to negotiate a way
forward for everyone involved, while all parties can somehow save face
in the public eye (at least formally).  In a fully public environment,
this wouldn't be possible, so there wouldn't be much incentive to make
any compromise at all.
