I suppose that's an indirect answer to my question further up the thread regarding disappearing posts.

Expressing the hope that Lexi changes her mind, and saying the forum was very good with her as Admin - with reasons, rather than just as an empty platitude - is a legitimate purpose for posting here too. Seeing as Lexi mentioned "recently expressed views" as a reason for leaving, rebuttals and disagreements with those expressed views are part and parcel of that, I'd have thought.

Can I remind everyone that this is not the Bear Pit.  This thread is Lexi saying her farewell (hopefully not for too long), and for the rest of us to express our thanks.  Its purpose is not to carry on any squabbles.


I would have thought it obvious that if part of Lexi's decision is because of our collective 'carrying on', the last thing she'd want to see is for any 'carrying on' to continue outside of the Bear Pit.  

If it wasn't obvious, then hopefully it is now.

It wasn't obvious, and to be honest I don't agree that it is "carrying on" to state Lexi is a good admin and to disagree - with reasons - with any opinions expressed to the contrary.

What is obvious is that "recently expressed opinions" made her feel she should leave. That being the case, she has left and relinquished admin-ship under false pretenses, as the responses from almost every poster on this thread testifies (hence, I didn't see any squabbles either...)

Don't worry, Boyg, I saw your post of agreement before it inexplicably disappeared. Maybe agreeing counts as squabbling, now.

It would only be "false pretenses" if Lexi was lying about her reasons for leaving. I don't think she's a liar and have no reason to doubt her word - I have no reason not to take her statements at face value. So no false pretenses.

Moved to the Bear Pit. It appears that only moderators are allowed to quote your post in this thread.

No I don't think Lexi is lying about her reasons, just that her reasons are based on a false premise (which I should have said rather than false pretense): that the discontent with her ability as admin is far, far, greater than it is in reality. Clearly this thread has brought out more than a few posters who support Lexi and believe she is an excellent admin.., and you were one of them.

That is all good in itself, but it would be even better if Lexi actually saw that the support was genuine and that we really would prefer her as admin here, and change her mind. Whether it will happen, I'm not so sure. It's a human trait to take criticism to heart more than a compliment, even though a criticism can be unreasonable too - the recent criticism (from only two posters) of Lexi falls under the "unreasonable" banner.

For now this will be locked.  Any carrying on can carry on in the Bear Pit.  Lexi hopefully knows how much she'll be missed and how much we want her to stay - the other 'stuff' that's been happening on this thread is not for here.  If you don't like that decision then tough, I'm sure you'll make your thoughts known.
