I'm still here. My priority in resigning as a witness was being able to not be online for day or two, not have to be present for meetings, not be on call 24/7, etc. without being derelict. I know some witnesses have done all these things and stayed witnesses anyway, but I don't approve of that (and have removed my witness vote specifically for it).
I will also admit to not being terribly optimistic about "recent events". However, I am certainly willing to see how things play out as long as I don't have to be right in the front row every day while they do.
