I would, very much, welcome your interpretation of where the fast-based personal observation(s) end and where the personal insults begin.

The tone and content of post #14 isn't constructive, adds nothing to the conversation, and we expect more at LQ.

I fully agree that the tone and content of post #14 is intended to be pertinent and sarcastic. It's purpose is to strike the "home truths" button with a swift and decisive blow. Obviously, as you are now involved, that purpose has been realised in full regarding certain individuals.

Considerations;
[*] If one cannot handle being rebuked for one's deeds then one needs to ensure that one's deeds are beyond reproach.
[*] It's hard to win an argument with a smart person. It's impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.
[*] Ignorance is acceptable to those who can afford it. Arrogance is affordable to those who can't.

You (the collective "we") expect more at LQ. More of what exactly? More users disseminating broad inaccuracies and fantasies as though they were proven fact, and not accepting they are wrong, perhaps? More acting on the complaints of said users regarding any disparagement they may have experienced as a result of their fractious promulgating, perhaps?

So, I'll thank you for having me around for the last +5 years and be on my way. LQ is no longer a place where I enjoy wasting time.

I'll take my SARPi shizzle elsewhere. Or maybe nowhere.

More members being respectful to each other. "Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack. Differing opinions is one of the things that make this site great." makes it very clear that you don't have to agree and are more than welcome to call another member out if you think they are incorrect; as long as you do so in a tactful manner.

That is of course your decision. You're welcome to participate here at any time, as long as you can do so under what I believe are pretty reasonable guidelines.

Exaga,

I hope that you reconsider leaving. Myself, as I'm sure others do too, appreciate the work that you have done on sarpi. I know that I would hate to see you go.
