Leslie K got some rather ridiculous email last night from 2-3 active people on the site and she regretfully tells me she's going to be unable to keep moderating the page.
The kind of personal and hateful language in these emails was such that my very first thought was to just shut the page down and let cretins like these in question go find some other place to exercise (and maybe exorcise) whatever darkness allows them think that the pseudonymity of this site allows them to write such terrible shit.
Leslie's note says, in part: "I love College Misery, and had such a good time. But, seriously, I do it just for fun, and being targeted like this - even if it's by such a TINY percentage - makes it not worth my energy and worry. I hate to do this, because I've had such nice communication with so many Miserians over the past four months. Please tell all of them how much I've enjoyed being a part of things, and let everyone know that I'll likely remain a reader. Sorry, Fabby...seriously."
I don't know many people who are more funny, wonderful, and as tough as Leslie K. She's a real world pal of mine, and I love her and her family very much. I hate that a job I asked her to do resulted in some douchebags taking out their anger on her personally.
The page will continue as is for the time being, and I hope that we can enjoy the site without it turning into a shooting gallery. For the offending parties from last night, shame on you.
