With sadness I wish to make you aware that I am stepping down as moderator from this site.
There are a number of reasons for this, but the primary immediate causes are Stack Exchange's disgraceful treatment of Monica Cellio and new mandates that will soon be added to SE's Code of Conduct. I am not willing to donate precious hours of my life in order to support a for-profit company that is so openly hostile to what "Be Nice" means to me.
I do not expect to run afoul of the updated CoC in my personal interactions on this site, so I do not intend to delete my account, but at this point I'm not sure what my future involvement here will look like.
It's been an honor to serve this community as moderator. It has been a pleasure, and to whoever replaces me, you will have two great moderators to work with in Joonas and Cerberus. Thank you.
As things have unfolded, I have written a bit more about what I feel is the key issue in this debacle. I continue to bear no ill will toward those who on account of different beliefs or priorities have chosen to take a different path. Thanks!
