I'm confused (and concerned) about emma's posting history the last few days.
Hope you are well emma. If not, please take care of yourself. From my vantage point, you've been a backbone to the community.
The first thing that came to my mind was that MAYBE emma's being harassed by law enforcement because of their obvious and vital connection to this site. Or maybe I'm being paranoid?

It's about all the infighting lately. I think it stressed her out. She quit in the matrix mid-drama.
The infighting is an indication that people care and are emotionally invested in Raddle. It shows there is diversity of thought and opinion.
Put another way, the only thing worse than infighting on the site is no infighting at all.
Is it really that bad? I haven't had time to be very active here the last few days, all I've seen is the Defasher drama and a general feeling of chaos. There must be more to it than that, right?
A bunch of people rage quit and 2 of them asked we delete all their themes.
But why? no_fun_allowed has been around for a long time, what inspired the old-timers to suddenly jump ship? I hate seeing the community unravel so quickly.

Nofun destroyed the raddle.spam matrix channel, forcing us to abandon it, and made it clear in there that they were angry at me because I wouldn't unilaterally ban a user they didn't like. They called me a hypocrite who enables trolls and said I pushed people off the site because I wouldn't do what they wanted.
ShiningWing has long lobbied for rules that would stop people from saying mean things about MLs, so I imagine her reasons are similar.
All 3 people who voted in support of a 'no trolling' rule left the site in anger at it not passing, and they were especially unhappy with me for opposing the proposal.

That's sad. Does this mean Raddle's code is unmaintained? No one else to develop it?
EDIT: emma made changes to the README an hour ago.
I think she's just stepping down as admin of Raddle, not necessarily as a developer of Postmill.
That's a shame. Good luck wherever you go next!
Oh man, that can't be good for the site. Anything we can do to help?
i'd help but i'm a filthy american
Wow, emma deleted a bunch of technical details on Postmill setup
she deleted references to raddle not anything technical really
I'm talking about deleted content on riddle, answers in the forums. It was technical.
I don't have time to research what is going on with this site, but it seems highly motivated suddenly in a negative way. Best I depart.
Sad that these things happen. I wish internet forums could find productive ways forward rather than the typical "I need my thing/you suck/i quit" that is typical places like reddit and others.
it kinda seems emma's account has been hijacked. the comment history is surely not her.
