This has gone too far.

A dh'aindeoin chùis, I've spent here over ten months, and despite the way it ended, they were mostly very good ten months. So, before leaving, I want to say goodbye to everyone, give my apologies to anyone I may have pissed off, and express "special thanks" to those of you with whom I've been in contact most often and/or whom I esteem the most, namely (in alphabetical order), Dan Polansky, DCDuring, EncycloPetey, Equinox, Hekaheka, Ruakh, Stephen G. Brown and Widsith. Good luck.


Hi Duncan, I sincerely hope you are going to come back to Wiktionary, after the commotion around Serbo-Croatian cools down a bit. I appreciate all your contribution to Czech entries. Once in a while, a flame war arises in a wiki, fueled by one or very few contributors, but, overall, the project keeps growing and is doing good work. You may consider stating your disagreement with Ivan Štambuk's style on the discussion page, although that will probably earn you an abusive response from him. But then, how else is he and everyone else going to learn that you disagree with his style? Hope to see you soon here. --Dan Polansky 15:56, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Hi Dan. Actually Ivan e-mailed me yesterday and more or less offered desysoping himself if it brought me back here. I replied just a few hours ago, saying (1) that I wasn't frustrated as much by his language as by the other editors' obviously hardly caring enough to do anything about it and (2) something along your lines, ie that quite possibly I will after some time cool down about this affair and return anyway. (We both said considerably more than this, but I won't go into detail on the rest.) Thanks for your words, though. Cheerio, --Duncan 17:21, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I didn't realise you'd left until I happened to visit your user page just now. What a pity. As Dan said, perhaps you'll think about returning when some sane decision has been made about these Eastern European languages. Equinox 20:13, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
