This seems to be a regression of https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com/q/32755/151554​; right now, Stack Overflow co-founder Joel Spolsky, who is no longer an employee, is a ♦ moderator on this site. He's also listed on the moderators tab.

    It's not really a regression, there hasn't ever been a fix for this other than manually removing diamonds as they appear. ;) Almost don't wanna remove this one though...

  • @animuson According to the policy you can read about here moderators who are inactive for over 6 months are to be removed. The user is not an employee anymore and wasn't active on this site for years ( Last seen more than 4 years ago ) and therefore should be removed. Jun 12, 2022 at 14:19

    @Henry That policy is really not relevant in any sense here. The diamond needs to me removed because they are no longer an employee and nothing else... I only jest at the action of removing it from the founder.
