I remember these threads and being a bit frightened by the anger and scorn the user showed towards those trying to help. Thanks for making this little corner of the internet safe for us Mods.

Thanks JulieC and Redheadedtwit :)

Just a reminder to everyone - my inbox is open if there's anything about this situation that's particularly bothering you that you want to keep private, and of course anyone can feel free to discuss it here in thread if you need to.

Chiming in- I feel like I'm in the running for "quietest mod" but I'm a pretty good listener and also here to listen or talk to anybody who needs an inbox. (That goes for anything, but this situation is particularly relevant.)
When I am wearing my mod hat, it's official business. Otherwise? Nothing special. :)

I just want to take a moment to thank the mods. You're a great team of mods and this community would not be such a safe wonderful place without ya'll.

I'm sorry that you've had to deal with this, but thank you for keeping on top of it for us.

Adding my thank you to the pile!
I post super sporadically because of anxiety and other life stuff, so sometimes it takes me ages to follow up on things.

I also compose things.

Had a scan through the threads. All I can say is... yikes.

You mods are tough cookies, dealing with that. So many jedi high-fives.
