You're giving a false option there Gregory. It's not a choice between
SV starting fresh or letting the drama "blow over in time", it's
actually a choice between starting fresh and letting the drama
continue indefinitely. The pattern over the past year has been towards
things intensifying, not things "blowing over". I don't think it's
realistic to think this will "blow over", there are too many trolls
out there putting too much energy into this for them to all just
forget about SV and go onto something else.
I also think your premise in B is incorrect. If continued speculation,
discussion etc were not harmful then why all the effort in
oversighting her earlier edits in various articles etc?
I guess really if the goal is to end the drama and disruption then the
choice is really either 1) if she doesn't care about protecting her
anonymity that she "outs" herself as whoever it is she is thus
deflating the whole campaign to find out and prove that she's X or Y
or, 2) if she does care, abandon her SV userid and get a new one (or
two if it's necessary to segregate edits in order to protect her from

A. continued speculation/discussion/etc on wiki (or elsewhere) about
Sarah's 'real identity' is harmful to her. In which case the best
course of action for *HER* (and, incidentally everyone else) is to
leave, take a break, and start anew with a fresh identity (providing
she doesn't realize how crazy coming back is.. muhaha).
B. continued speculation/discussion/etc is not harmful to her, in
which case the suppression of that discussion on wiki is totally
unjustified and unnecessarily drama inducing. If this is the case we
should just shrug the drama off and go on with life. Like all other
drama it will just blow over in time.
