First, I would like to thank those people who have contacted me privately,  
expressing concern about the events of the past few days. I truly value your  
friendship and support.
That said, at present, I am unwilling to discuss the  reasons for my 
resignation from the WMF office team. I plan on remaining an  active editor on various 
projects, as I have always been, even before I began  working for WMF. To 
ensure that there are no misunderstandings or claims of an  abuse of power, I ask 
that all admin status on the various projects be revoked.  If I feel I can 
help as an admin, I will ask to be reelected by the normal  process. I look 
forward to this opportunity to reenter the community as a new  user and to share 
in the building of free  knowledge. 
I would also like to announce that I plan on running for the Board of  
Trustees in the June elections for the seats currently held by Kat, Oscar, and  
Erik. At that time, I will make known my position on how the Wikimedia  Foundation 
should operate, and what mistakes I perceive are being made at  present. 
So let's leave the gossip and second-guessing behind us and get on with  the 
real task at hand--building the largest and most reliable repository of  
knowledge ever created.
