The most recent SE incident (as well as several others earlier) was largely inflated by the interaction of SE/SE Staff with the press and some social media interactions (tweets/re-tweets, in particular) done by individual SE employees.
I am very glad that a new no comment policy was introduced (however, not expressed formally anywhere yet as of Oct 30, 2019) recently.
Maybe, the voluntary or mandatory "Views Expressed" social media disclaimer policy for SE Staff can be introduced as well. The particular phrasing can be left open, something along the lines:
All views expressed on this site are my own and do not represent opinions of any entity whatsoever with which I have been, am now, or will be affiliated.
- SE is now a corporation. It looks like a corporation. It behaves like a corporation. Maybe, it's time to treat it like a corporation.
- The Press would not be able (at least, they would be inaccurate) to take statements from personal social media account and easily integrate it into the story.
- Theoretically, it can minimize the damage that can be done (for a good or bad reason) to an individual in a conflict with SE as a company or some particular SE employee.
- It makes the separation between individual SE employees and SE company more visible.
Such policy, in theory, can contribute to the protection of users, SE employees, and SE company. So, it's not targeting the benefits of one particular group.
