You have been a good mentor in here ! you helped us cool things down when
they became too personal,  you managed to create space where one part kept
silent while you tried to make proposals on how to continue.

When you took an active role, I could take a step back and instead, which
was a good thing, because I was too involved but also the only one fighting
to keep the community together.

That is my question too, and can mentors then also expect to get help when

lets face it, help of a type that causes a mentor to resign, seems less

yup and it would be good to accept that in a small community it is very
important that personalities work together.

I think we (you and me) knew after having tried  a lot, that this was a
question of one person or a community.....what we see now is the
consequence expected.

i am sorry to say, I believe the resignations should be taken seriously,
some of us (maybe all) do not use resignation as a threat.

we cannot talk about what happens on other lists, which is sad because you
did an excellent job in describing the problem and the response was not
what was expected.

Thanks for your help Dave.
