We've had woefully poor success attempting to dialogue with the company through Meta, a petition, email, phone, and the Contact Us form.
What attempts, if any, have been made to reach out to members of the Board of Directors (other than Joel Spolsky)?
The composition of the Board: Brad Burnham (Union Square Ventures), Adrianna Burrows (Payscale), Anil Dash (Glitch), Peter Levine (Andressen Horowitz), Neil Rimer (Index Ventures), Bijan Sabet (Spark Capital).
@Lewis has suggested that to attempt contacting any of them would constitute harassment. I am asking if this has been tried, in order to avoid going back over ground that may have been tried already.
If anyone wants to write up a post that lays out reasons for or against contacting them, please write a separate question where such a post would be on point.
January 19, 2020 (one month after posting the question): Has anyone taken Anil up on his kind offer? Has he been responsive? (I was tied up with Winter Session, but have emailed him today.)
Also, a new, related idea: If anyone has some personal connection with Adam Fenty, "special advisor" to the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (which invested $40 million in SE in 2014, according to Wikipedia), "hired to advise the firm's portfolio companies on working with local, state, and federal governments," and wants to reach out -- I wonder if that would help? Note, his undergraduate and grad schools were Oberlin and Howard, respectively. If you are an alum from either of these schools -- that might make it easier to make a cold call.
