Why do the Boddhisattva precept reject telling a person of their misdeeds?
Discussing misdeeds or infractions of Bodhisattva-clerics or Bodhisattva-laypersons, or of [ordinary] monks and nuns are not allowed, nor encouraged. Why? How can they grow if they aren't told when they're doing something wrong? Didn't the Vinaya say that if someone witnesses an offense it should be spoken of and told otherwise it is participating in the unwholesome deed by enabling and covering up unwholesome deeds of others?
