But 'tis time for me to hang up my plumbob as well!
It would not surprise me if many of you have no idea who I am. That's okay. I regard you fondly all the same.
To keep things short and simple -- I've not been handling much of the moderator workload (for years, truly; Ash and Badp are/were literal flag-monsters), so I don't think my "departure" is going to have much of an effect!
I plan to continue to lurk and help in what small ways I can (gotta stay on top as long as I can, after all!), but I can do that just fine as a 20K+ rep user.
To say "Farewell" or "Au Revoir" would be hyperbolic -- so instead I say: "Game on!"
