in thread Having our anonymous cake and eating it too

I appreciate the outreach, and I understand you're trying to explain why you think it all went so sideways, and smooth it all over, but I think we've already burnt that bridge, salted the ashes, and nuked the site from orbit.

I'm sorry that there seems to be no way to find common ground between my personal principles, and those of the majority here. (I did not force my views on anyone. The "cop" remark was inappropriate.) As such, I can't continue to participate here without either making compromises I can't live with, or dealing with hostility every time we disagree.

Life's too short to hang around places I know will upset me. See you at conferences, maybe.

    Or you could hang out here, but stay away from the "meta". Or are you saying that the site's imperfections make it morally intolerable for you?

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      I'm saying that there are certain users who I can't interact with in a fruitful way who are in a position of at least perceived power, and that having to self-police to avoid inflaming them outweighs the value I get for participating. I apologize for the late reply. I logged in to make it easier to look up some old threads.
