This surfaced in the apology thread, but I believe it deserves more exposure.
The apology thread was posted October 6th, 2019. In it, the idea was expressed that SE, the company, had done wrong by Monica and were reaching out to try to mend that situation.
As has become habit the management of SE then went radio silent. Despite the company announcing a new CoC, Monica remains in limbo. No one has addressed whether she violated the CoC, and the new process for moderator reinstatement has not been announced.
I'm calling this out in an attempt to not let it wither and die in an ignored thread. Monica is one of our own and she deserves closure, as do we as a community.
It’s been 8 days, and the words in the apology ring more and more insincere with each day. The only conclusion I can reach is that the apology was an attempt to silence the controversy, and that the core issues (the debacle around Monica's treatment, and the lack of transparency and disregard towards community feedback reflected in the behavior of SE staff) will remain unaddressed.
What can we, as a community, do to get a response from the SE staff?
EDIT: SE Has now provided a process for reinstating moderators
However, the critical question, "What did Monica do that violated the CoC" has not been resolved. She remains unsatisfied, and the process that has been outlined presupposes the guilt of the person being reinstated.
While I appreciate the efforts taken so far on part of the SE team, I believe we as a community have an obligation to continue to pressure them until the issue is fully resolved.
EDIT2: Monica has replied to the reinstatement issue
EDIT3: The Situation remains unfixed and I am beginning to think that SE will not take action unless forced to.
EDIT4: It looks like Monica is being forced to resort to litigation to get an answer. You can find the details by searching
