I've decided that it's time for me to step down as a moderator of this site. This has been something I've been thinking about for quite a while; it's a product of numerous events that have occurred over the past year or so. I've already communicated my decision to the people at Stack Exchange, and while I'm not sure when they will officially remove the diamond, I expect it will be soon, maybe this week.
I don't plan to be actively contributing here anymore, at least not in the short term, but my profile will remain in place and I'm not ruling out an occasional comment or post. If anyone wants to get in touch, my contact information is and will remain in my profile.
The other moderators and I discussed whether it makes sense to have an election to add new mods. We believe there's no immediate need for one, since the remainder of the team isn't having any trouble with the workload right now, but there might be one a few months down the road.
I'd like to express my gratitude to everyone who helped make moderating a rewarding experience for the past (almost) ten years!
