It's great to hear the sentiments and protestations of loyalty to the site users and all the rest.
But lets keep it real. Not one mod stepped up to the plate to help TWP by remaining for at least a bit longer. And realistically that's the proof to the pudding.
It's a pretty clear cut attempt to coerce SE into something, or punish. Not constructive in any way or indicative of respect for the rest of us. So while I'm sure they all have reasons, there's no point pretending it's in anyone's interests but theirs. Certainly not the people who voted them in to start with.
Just an observation.
