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 an elected moderator. Thank you.
Soli Deo Gloria.
Elsewhere I've posted some additional thoughts on what I feel is the key issue.
I was also remiss in failing to make clear in this post the respect I have for the moderators and members of the community who have chosen to take a different approach to dealing with this situation. This is a deeply personal decision and it's no surprise that we should come to different conclusions.
