** Status Update **: Had a very constructive video conversation with LM personnel, who genuinely are taking on the concerns expressed and trying to find timely solutions to support a healthy community amidst their priorities and resources. Not that everything is going to be perfect in any immediate timeframe, but there were understandable reasons for them being where they are and they are finding our feedback constructive in their attempt to implement their philosophy for a solid and healthy community.
