Monica has just posted the following on Meta Stack Exchange:
Stack Overflow is doing me ongoing harm; it's time to fix it!
In particular, the post includes the following:
Therefore I call on Stack Overflow and its individual representatives to:
- Retract all of the negative statements about me described above, publicize that retraction to all places where the original claims were made or are known to have spread, and to the best of its ability clear my name; and
- Reverse the original decision, restoring me to my position without prejudice. The model here must be akin to declaring a mistrial, not akin to an application for early parole.
The last thing I would want is for the company to hold tight, wait for the storm to blow over, and (if it comes to it) deal with any litigation with all the resources a multi-million-dollar business has available to it – yet it has so far shown every indication that this is exactly their strategy. Monica remains unreinstated, and justice remains unfulfilled.
So, my simple question is:
What further actions can we in the Writing.SE community take to put pressure on the company to accede to Monica's requests?
