I have always enjoyed your input to discussions and your knack for remaining level-headed when the situation spirals.
Your presence here now and previously as Carpetsmoker was a reliable fixture of the site for me, and one of the ones that made it feel like a community. As a relatively new user, getting to see that name crop up now and then made me feel like I knew a bit about the community—and eventually, like I was part of it and its dialogue. Thank you for contributing to that.
I will be sad to see you go, but I respect your decision. It is hard to remain where one feels uncomfortable.
Thank you for serving me and this community. I wish you well.
P. S. I’m rather close friends with a few Dutch folks in the Nijmegen area. When time permits in the (possibly distant) future, I hope to visit them again. If it all works out, I’ll buy you a beverage of your choosing.
