Labor action notice

I think it's important to remember that not only those with diamonds moderate. We all do - through up and down-voting, through closing, flagging and so forth. It's whats left of the community at stake....

Labor action notice

I have not played the Serverfault game with any gusto for some time but my day job does land me here occasionally. When that happens I will often do some moderation. I have signed the letter and will ...

Do we want anonymity?
