This isn't his main board, and that's fine. Sometimes I've even seen him re-post something word for word from a similar topic from a thread on thephins. The fact that he doesn't care about this thread says everything about what he thinks about this forum. Perhaps he was just looking for a reason to leave for good. Whatever. He's a smart guy and I respect his opinion. The board is better when he contributes.
But let's not pretend he particularly cares about this board or that recent events "drove him off". I seem to remember him joking about being named "Best Overall Poster" (on his twitter, I think?) the last time he won that award, because he only posts here now and then and doesn't particularly care for the board (though he's not above politicking for votes on his twitter account, lol).
If you're annoyed that he's taken his ball and gone home, my advice to you is to a) take it up with management over the way the board is moderated, b) join thephins, or c) just get over it.
And with that, I'm done with this thread myself.
