People do reply. I'm one of the guilty parties.
Which leads me to say......
AllyT, there's an arbitrariness to board rule enforcement. It's unfortunate, but it happens. Something worse than what you said was once said to me by an inexplicably popular member, yet it was dismissed as unimportant, though it rankled. I believe that if anyone but the member to whom I'm referring had said it, she'd have been issued a warning.
So, please reconsider your decision to leave. Some people seem to have accepted though not universally popular roles to play on this site, and we don't always have to agree with the mods' opinions (which vary person by person, anyway).
