I'm sure stjames knows he can leave any time. If my memory serves correctly, I'd guess that among active posters, he's been here as long as almost anyone else. Obviously in spite of frustrations with this site, he's chosen to stay and I hope he continues to stay for a very long time.
I'm sure Bob would be among the first to admit that this site isn't perfect and his administration of it isn't flawless. Everyone has to continually balance the benefits they get from participation against the toll of emotional upheaval that we all feel when things happen here that upset us. Its an everchanging balance as most things are. Maybe he could have made his point in a better way, but I don't think he should ever be faulted for pointing out what he feels are some of the deficiencies in the way the site is being administered.
