Red Text Attacks like these often put innocent employees at risk of doxxing and harassment by trolls and the worst parts of the internet. While you may not feel sympathy for the company's management, keep in mind the large number of largely innocent people who are now at risk.

EtcetEraThread The mental health of this community [Read Staff Post Before Posting]
Red Text Let's try this again. As stated before, hijacking this thread to complain about the strictness of moderation or cancel culture will not be tolerated. More broadly, this is a very serious discussion that warrants sensitivity, empathy and a responsible approach. You have no compulsion to post if you don't care about the subject. The team will be reading the thread and discussing suggestions that come up, as well as responding to constructive feedback. We want the forum culture and community to improve, just as much as you all. But insensitive, dismissive and inflammatory posts will be subject to moderation.

We expect more details of the situation will become apparent soon.
