Chess.com and Nakamura distance themselves from donor-moderator

A high profile moderator and donor who goes by Chessbae94 was stripped off all moderator rights by Chess.com. Hikaru Nakamura apologized to the chess community for what were apparently her actions. Chessbae94 has been spending significant time and money to support chess streamers and bought herself influence that she used against streamers she didn’t approve of. Her behaviour has been controversial for some time. It escalated after she dished out copyright infringement claims against other streamers on behalf of Chess.com and Nakamura, which Eric Hansen from Chessbrah made public.
