SE recently changed their policy about featuring posts, specifically about moderator resignation notices. This change was posted on MSE as essentially an announcement, without any discussion.
Just now a change to this policy was announced as far as I interpret it, it isn't entirely clear as the new announcement is a bit generic and fuzzy.
The one thing that is very obvious here is that SE is dictating these changes from above, and isn't even trying to defend them or argue their merits with the community. They're just dropped on meta and we're expected to follow them.
That is not what we mean when we ask for SE to engage with the community on meta. Meta is about discussion, about substantiated arguments. There is nothing like that visible in these recent announcements, there is no indication SE is even interested in any kind of discourse. Clarifications don't count, I'd expect SE to be able to defend the substance of their changes. In this particuar case the major question is why SE doesn't consider regular moderation sufficient to handle these kind of post, even if they attract more trouble than usual, it should still be possible to moderate them. SE seems willing to respond to some of the details of the policy, but not to the fundamental issue.
I don't expect to always agree with SE, and that's okay. But right now they're not even trying to defend policy changes, we're just supposed to accept them without question. Is this how it is going to be from now on?
