I just wanted to clarify my decision to step down. When I say “personal reasons,” I mean it. It has nothing whatsoever to do with my experience of moderating. I really enjoyed moderating and I now that I’ve had a peek behind the scenes, I can definitively say that the moderators of this board are more impartial, reasonable and fair than many give them credit for. Really, the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Hats off to admin as well, including Ed. Truly lovely people, the lot of you.
Likewise, it has nothing to do with anything anyone on this board said or did while I was moderating. I have nothing but positive things to say about the whole experience, and I appreciate the love many of you have given me during my short tenure.
I’m stepping down because I do, in fact, have personal matters to attend to. Nothing to worry about, everything’s fine – in fact, since I’ve turned my attention to these things, I’ve been doing much better. It’s a bittersweet choice I had to make, but I already can see that I made the right decision.
I appreciate everything, every bit of it. Thank you.
