SO is running scared when because Monica got lawered up.

Not only did she raise the funding to bring the case to court she had a pretty strong case to bring, at no point did she actually break the CoC even though the CoC was not in effect at the point they ditched her.

She merely questioned if it was still acceptable to use gender neutral pronouns if she was unsure of which pronoun the poster would prefer.

She did not even bring up obvious points, such as would she be required to use "Your Majesty", or "Oh Greatness" if a poster identified as such. And what is the correct pronoun to use when the poster identifies as a "free spirit penguin" (answer "you smug idiot Piers").
