88. I quite often have had enough of this place
and I quite often leave. I do not, however, announce my intention of doing so in order to generate pleas for me to remain.

I'm all for taking a break from DU when you need it. I take them quite often - the frequency is increasing lately - and I've been here since March of 2001. I've never seen the purpose of announcing it, unless you're hoping to have someone talk you out of it. Is that the intention? I don't mean this to be offensive, but I truly don't understand the reasons why someone would announce their departure. It's kind of like leaving someone's house after visiting saying, "well, this has been a really shitty party, so I'm leaving, but I'll stand here in the door for about half an hour saying so first." It just seems an odd thing to do.
