I enjoyed your posts, and I would regret your departure.

If it takes you too much time, maybe you can just read/post less and
stay ? (one trick is, you can spare lots of time by leaving to some
the "last word" they crave ; another trick is, don't assume that,
because someone says what you say is crap, everyone agrees with the
judgement)

In any case, best personal wishes, and see you later ("later" : that
"useless hypothesis, etc.")
