What, exactly, happened to The Base Camp and the other chat rooms?
The Base Camp, which I followed regularly, disappeared in the wake of The Mess. I saw no incitement to riot or other bad behavior in TGO's Chat Room, only disappointment at the course of events. Ditto for the ELU Chat Room, which, like ELU as a whole, seemed oblivious to the entire imbroglio.
Yet, as far as I can tell, someone decided TGO and the other chat rooms had done something wrong and deleted them.
If I have just overlooked a link to The Base Camp, abject apologies.
