1. Yes, we're aware that McAfee is reporting this as a "malicious site", we don't know why. I have some indirect evidence suggesting someone filed a bogus report somewhere. In the mean time, doing some software updates. Probably safe/harmless, but things might be down occasionally until it's done.

    • because i haven't been doing much actually on-site to talk about but there've been a bunch of policy things I've talked about to other mods + Seebs, I kind of want to post some about that process, but I'm editing a paper for a journal and then I have an abstract due for a class and then i have class and i'm not sure quite how to articulate what i want to say, so just. like. putting a pin in this to come back to.

    Okay. So, like, Seebs put some newer limitations on Alix's account, which has been discussed various other places on the forum. There were reasons, like unbanning from ITA at request and so Alix can take advantage of the space to work through things if she wants, but limiting her access because due to previous discomfort on other people's part about her using privileged information against people and the sensitive nature of a lot of the posted stuff, that seemed like the way to make the most people safest. But I think it's important that even though I agree with the logic, and I think we're all more or less behind that decision, it's not something that was decided by committee. There is no mod hivemind. We tend to have similar ideas about harm reduction, but not the same ones. We argue. And, ultimately, Seebs is the dictator/admin and makes stuff happen if they want to. In some ways I think it'd be better if we could have our modly arguments in public to reinforce that no we are super not a hive mind and to show that a lot of things are not arbitrary, but also those arguments sometimes involve confidential information, so we have reasons to keep the discussions themselves private.

    Edit: Spock also moved stuff! We were both editing at the same time. If you got multiple notifications, don't worry, nothing's wrong, we just hadn't sufficiently coordinated!
