Due to a highly turbulent situation, the moderator status network wide is very chaotic.

Main meta post:

Firing mods and forced relicensing: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

For this site, it means I'm suspending activity, while called2voyage, moderator on both here and Astronomy, has stated they will keep up moderation as for now.

Update: I'm resigning.

It is possible for users to also participate in communication.

We can read and vote accordingly on the comments and answers to the heavily downvoted An Update to our Community and an Apology.

update: @Machavity's comment is high importance so I'll echo it in this post:

Apology 2.0 seems to have finally learned the lessons V1 did not

but let's wait to see how this new wording is bourne out in corrective actions...

  • $\begingroup$ @JCRM They have honored their word so far, though Monica says she is still not satisfied after they contacted her but we don't have more details on that yet. $\endgroup$
