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.
