I was greatly disheartened when I read this. I don't know whether to be angry, saddened, or disgusted. You definitely rank among the most positive influences here- a quick look at your extensive list of writeups should confirm that to any doubters.
If you read Slashdot, you'll probably find a bunch of adolescent haxors who would like to see this taken the Supreme Court. Hell, I know I would. But I don't think any clueful person will ever fault you for your choice. I tip my hat to you, and wish you the best.
Make no mistake, fellow Monks, we've just lost one of our best and brightest. Tilly, thank you for making this site a better place while you were here- I hope you'll be able join us again under another name.
So long, and thanks for all the code,
