You are allowed to reveal what one player said to you in a private chat to another player(s).
You can even copy-paste their words, but I don’t think there is any reliable way to prove that you have not potentially changed them, besides inviting the other player to the private channel (which you are not allowed to do).
Note that private threads can be quoted, however, one can arbitrarily change the text in the quote:
A screenshot can also be easily faked, either by using the developer console (available in all modern browsers) to easily edit the page, or by using a image editing tool to manipulate the screenshot.
Thus, while I think using faked quotes and faked screenshots is okay, it’s probably not worth the effort to go to such trouble, rather than just copy-pasting.
I wanted to say all of this publicly, just so everyone is on the same page about what type of subterfuge is possible.

Would everyone be happy with this? I can’t imagine @le_4TC likes this board position…
If you assume there is no information about what the other players do, random.org is a good way to give you a good chance to play one of your favourite moves.
However, people are saying what they will play, so you actually do have information about what the board state will likely become. I’d say it’s better to think of an optimal move considering what the board might look like.
Think about it like this: both you and Vagabond want to get a corner. If you don’t cooperate, you might end up blocking each other twice in a row, which means neither of you gets a corner. On the other hand, by cooperating, you can both get one of the corners, given that nobody else interferes.
Since you missed the deadline, it was extended for a full 24 hours. The round will end on 2020-08-13T00:00:00Z, and all players are free to continue discussion and (optionally) change their moves until then.
