Even though I knew this was coming, I still don't know what to say or how I
should feel...

On the one hand I respect your descision, on the other I'm greatly saddened
that you feel it had to come to this, saddened that a project that I have a
great passion for myself, with such a large community behind it that for the
most part gets along incredibly well, has a small section of a few people
that simply cannot get along for whatever reasons (which we wont get into),
and saddened that those reasons should make someone feel they need to give
up something that they love doing (and, Jonathan, I know you do) just to
avoid the bullshit and general ill will that pops up from time to time.

Though I admire the strength it must have taken to do so, knowing how
conflicted you were about this and how long its been a consideration of

I feel as though its something that I've failed at, I feel like I've let you
down. Both as a friend, and as a part of a wider community.
Its not a sign of a healthy community, and its a community I'm part of. Many
members of which I consider to be good friends, including yourself.

I would like for you to reconsider, in fact, I would love for you to.
However, I've absolutely no desire for you to be unhappy or to now feel
obliged to stay.

I hope that you will come back, one day, and that this is only a break (one
I know you need).

With love,
