Who is Monica Cellio?

I’m new here and not familiar with why there are so many questions regarding her. I can’t find her on SE either.

    I wonder, where did you first read/saw something about Monica? – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Dec 26 '19 at 13:22

    "I can’t find her on SE either." Huh?? meta.stackexchange.com/users/162102/monica-cellio – πάντα ῥεῖ Dec 26 '19 at 13:31

    I'm somewhat uncomfortable having the answer to "Who is Monica Cellio?" as [link to recent unpleasant events]. What about all her positive contributions over the years? – Rebecca J. Stones Dec 26 '19 at 13:35

    @Rebecca well without those unpleasant events, nobody would be wondering about her like that, so it's unavoidable. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Dec 26 '19 at 13:53

    Monica Cellio is a thoughtful and considerate individual who has volunteered countless hours of her time to helping moderate a half-dozen different Stack Exchange sites. Everything else is minutiae. – Double AA Dec 26 '19 at 14:07
  • I’m new go SE. It’s only natural I don’t understand. – Dora Dec 26 '19 at 16:11

    @Shadow The Burning Wizard, it came up as one of the hot questions on the site about SE’s declaration about her or something. I’m really sorry to hear about her though. – Dora Dec 26 '19 at 16:12

    @Dora fair enough. Hope you got your answer, and now with over 20 rep you can join chat to discuss it further if you like, and not in comments. :) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Dec 26 '19 at 16:13
  • I did, thank you. Where is the chat section? – Dora Dec 26 '19 at 16:13

    VTR as I think the answer to this question could be an expanded version of @DoubleAA 's statement – topo Reinstate Monica Dec 26 '19 at 21:44

    @topo or a verbatim quote. As I said, everything else is minutiae. A random Google searcher that comes here need know nothing more than what I said. – Double AA Dec 27 '19 at 0:14

    @DoubleAA I agree that the 'recent events' don't deserve to have equal prominence to Monica's years of freely-given service. But I'm sure there are plenty of people who might have many remarks about the high quality of that service that would help the OP - and others - understand the situation better. Answered in that spirit, a question like this could also redress the record somewhat wrt what people find when they google this topic. – topo Reinstate Monica Dec 27 '19 at 0:19

    @topo in Hebrew we have an expression תפסת מרובה לא תפסת. You grab too much and you haven't grabbed [at all]. We could write pages of quality anecdotes and descriptions of praise about Monica, but I'm not sure that helps a random googler who won't bother to read it. Short and sweet does the trick – Double AA Dec 27 '19 at 0:23
