Monica was removed as a moderator over the weekend by the SE staff. It wasn’t her decision.
As a result of that decision and way it was undertaken, I have taken the easy decision of immediately stepping down.
Good luck to you and all who follow.
Snow and Jane, it has been an honor to serve with you and the other moderators and work with this community.
On Friday, half an hour before Shabbat and two days before Rosh Hashana, Stack Overflow Inc. suddenly revoked my moderator status on all sites where I had it. I found this out while handling flags, when I suddenly got notifications for Marshal and Deputy badges (which moderators are ineligible to earn). They did this not because I've done anything to violate SE policies, but because they think I will in the future violate a thoughtcrime-style provision of a Code of Conduct change that hasn't been made yet. My questions and requests for discussion were ignored, and incorrect claims were made about me in places where I can no longer defend myself.
I wrote more about this on a different site's meta.
I just requested that my profile for this site ( and 66 others ) be deleted permanently.
I have had many moments in my time here, mostly good but some not. Most of them were kept going in a positive direction by our interactions. I consider you a friend, and support your decision completely.
I am holding out hope that this wrong will be righted and things go back to the way they should be.
Monica was our captain, you are my friend.
Holding out hope for now, and wishing you a generally upward trend.
Thank you for all the hard work as a diamond moderator - as a former diamond mod on RPG.SE I know how much thankless work is involved.
Thank you also for the principled stand, I would like to think that if my mod team had a fellow mod treated this way by the CMs we'd have mass resigned in protest as well. Well done.
