Yes, it is. It can be done on solution or on community pressure, but 
it's a good thing nevertheless.

I saw that it was getting personal while I didn't want it to.
I first tried explaining that it wasn't personal, then when I saw that 
it was not helping I decided to revert the -1 for the reason you outline 

But the fact that it somehow did get personal, even if that was not the 
intention, was too much for me to bear ATM. I have a personal life too, 
with feelings and all this stuff, and this episode, in this difficult 
period for me, really hit. This is not an accusation or anything, just a 
constatation. I am perfectly aware that no harm was intended by anyone here.

As I said, I'm not going away, just getting off the stage to help in the 
backstage for the moment.

Which could be a good thing nevertheless.
