Aaron - Reinstate Monica
I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics and Informatics in the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, and have been involved with Stack Overflow for almost ten(!) years. However, on October 17, 2019, I suspended my involvement on Stack Exchange due to the issues surrounding the firing of Monica from her moderator position. I agree wholeheartedly with the following statement of support:
The recent actions of Stack Exchange have been reprehensible. The lack of professional conduct, the tone deaf way they've been dealing with the community, and the unfair and unjustified way they've dealt with Monica Cellio. Monica is an exemplar of the community, it's incredible how she's managed to keep a level head during this time when emotions have been very high. REINSTATE MONICA
Please consider supporting her financially through her GoFundMe page.
I take this step with great reluctance, but I am sadly no longer hopeful that the situation will be resolved satisfactorily, and may not check back regularly. So if there's been an update I should know about, please contact me via email to let me know. Thanks. It's been lots of fun participating on this site, and I've learned a lot.
