I am no longer an "owner" in this community. Recently there was an attack by an unidentified third party who demoted all the owners and then assigned someone else. A few days have passed and the situation has not been resolved despite my repeated attempts and requests to have the previous owners re-instated.

I wish there was more that I could do to ensure the safety of this community, but I have not been able to regain the needed access despite many attempts to do so. That part is out of my hands at this point, but I continue to reject all new management decisions as a matter of principle since the removal of the "owner" status was affected by the unknown attacker, and I refuse to recognize any new self-proclaimed authority that continues to operate without first returning the "owner" status to those who had it prior to the attack (in essence, to "make things right").
I have enjoyed being a participant, and meeting so many wonderful people (and cats, and aliens, and whatever else people are claiming to be), but I worry now that my days are numbered even though it's still unclear what the motives behind the attack was, or how it occurred.
Please know that I have thoroughly enjoyed being what I consider to be a meaningful part of this community. It is with great sadness that this situation has not been rectified, yet I hope for a day that it will be.
Sincerely, and with a heartfelt love for all of you,+Fidem Turbāre
