It has come to my attention that not only has vandalism forced me to leave, but that continued vandalism in my absence has been carried out "under my name"........I am sorry, however, that people apparently willing to believe that the real Nancy Sculerati has been making recent harrassing posts.
First it was quite obvious the impersonator was not you. No one who has edited with you would have made such a mistake.
I am sorry too that the men of Citizendium look the other way instead of defend women's reputations when they are smeared. I was a strong advocate of "real names" and I must admit, at this point, I would not advise a female register under her own name.
I have to say that your absense is a mystery to me, it is clear there are things that have been said and edited here that have passed quite a few of us by. My first hint was the obvious absense of your edits poping up on the recent changess along with the red link to your name.
With regard to defending you, or anyone, it is possible i just ignored the comments as obvious trolling. Clearly we have had a lot recently. In general, it is not worth commenting about obvious trolls since that is exactly what they want. But it sounds like something worse than that has happened, maybe people commenting outside of citizendium? A hate site? Unfortunately, there are people out there whose only goal is to bring good people down. They live for the unwarranted attention this brings to themselves.
I think this should be a lesson that citizendium needs to have tighter doors. But how to stop the ignorami and thugs is another matter? But if this is causing good people to leave the project it has to be a priority.
