I've read members mention this event a couple times now. What do you mean when you say "the women figuratively... yelled loudly"? Did they start calling out posters in debate and election threads? Did they make ATMB threads? Did they email TubaDiva and threaten to cancel their subscriptions? If I think that the moderators aren't doing their (volunteer) jobs, what should I do?

If you're new enough not to understand the coded language I'm using, then this post may be gibberish. Code is all that is allowed in ATMB. I'm betting that the mods can decipher me. You there, in the mod loop, can you hear me now?
No, I don't understand your coded language.
