Today I discovered what I can only describe as the juvenile nonsense surrounding Monica Cellio's dismissal as a moderator. I've spent hours wading through it and almost coming to tears over it. No one likes seeing an associate they've come to respect and admire be treated like dirt — especially over something as ephemeral as the political issue d'jour. As I read, I felt sickened. I have nothing against people of any gender or gender-preference, but ever since I loaned my support to the same-sex-marriage movement, I have become increasingly disillusioned by the LGBT political engine. And in my opinion, Monica was run over by that engine.
I have decided that I'm done with Stack Exchange. I posted a longer version of this announcement in frustration over on SE Meta. In the grand scheme of things, it won't matter much, with possibly one exception.
I was hosting the Sandbox (i.e., I'm the user who created the latest Sandbox). Before my move to Montana I was very active supporting it, which is natural since as the "OP" for the current box I was notified of everything that went on in it. If there's no way to transfer that "ownership" to someone else, then everyone will need to remember to visit it regularly and help out the new users.
I have greatly enjoyed participating here. Honestly, I'm going to miss it. But SE has become something I can no longer support.
My thanks to everyone.
