Goodbye, Stack Overflow! It's been fun collecting 11,758 Internet points and helping start the overflow site, but I'll be leaving as part of the Monica Cellio backlash.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I’m sorry to see you (and so many other SE users that I respect) go. It is certainly making me question my future here. Oct 3 '19 at 20:54

    @Fennec - I'm sorry to see you leave. These are interesting times, and I think there's still some good things going on here. I've been here nearly 10 years, and for now, will whether the storm. I appreciated your participation, and want you to know you're always welcome here. Oct 4 '19 at 21:19

  • Don't worry, it's gone. Account deletion is not instant. Also, the content won't be removed. Just the account associated with it.

    @Vicky The name was in the post for some time before a CM deleted the member name. See my comment above, where I said goodbye. Oct 13 '19 at 1:09

    @Vicky I'm not close to leaving the site or even just resigning as a mod at the moment, though I have very mixed feelings about the current situation (far too long to put in a comment!) and things seem to be going gradually downhill rather than getting better. Oct 14 '19 at 7:37
