Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we
started this platform. We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social
media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and
exercise their rights to both.
We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We
will not let civil discourse perish!

The smears against John and Alina are exactly the sort of tactics he is
imploring us all to abandon. Let’s all commit to working together toward
unity and healing.
