I enjoyed the levity in your post.
Actually, contrary to popular belief, mods don't act on their own recognizance; all actions are based on team input.
But to answer your question, the post in question was made in the Open Forum which has been retired for the time being.
No further decision has been offered as to when we can expect access.
Thats pobably not the answer you were looking for but many people share in the desire to have it returned to functionality.
I believe that is on the WoC's docket for future discussion.
