Whee does he get off telling people they don't need to know his full reasons? Even worse, why is he pretending people can't learn more simply by reading his posts on the official Wikipedia Chill Out Lounge, Wikipediocracy?I do not intend to provide my reasons for this resignation, which I hope the community will respect. The closest I have/will come is this essay, published two weeks ago: User:BU Rob13/AGF applies to everyone. That's a very incomplete view of my reasons for resigning, though. I will note two things: First, this has nothing to do with personal or family reasons. I still have time available to give; I've just reached a point where I've decided not to give it here. Second, in light of the Alex Shih resignation last year, I think it's prudent for me to affirmatively state that this resignation does not stem from any misconduct, actual or alleged. ~ Rob13Talk 06:59, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Hilarious statement however, if only for the reminder that Rob was on the Committee that stood by and said nothing, even though they knew Alex Shih, another customer of the chill out rooms, was lying his ass off in his resignation statement.
Least likely to make errors? Other than standing for election to a role you were clearly not suited for?I confirm that Rob is not retiring under a cloud. Quite the reverse. He has been a respected and authoritative figure on the Committee, and the one least likely to make errors, despite being one of the most active behind the scenes. I'm not sure what the "rules" are regarding Arb retirement. If an admin or crat retires, they can request the tools back without a fuss; I hope the same is true for Arbs, and that with enough public support being shown to Rob, that he will feel more encouraged and will return.

And now we have to have a constitutional crisis because there's no policy that says whether or not a Committee Member who bales on their commitment to serve for two years, can then just come and go as they please in that two years? Being allowed to temporarily sign off as inactive is not terribke
He resigned. If he doesn't make mistakes, then let him live with the entirely foreseeable consequences of that decision. If you are in any doubt, consult the Chill Out Room, where he was explicit in his view that this was about him departing his seat early because he had done what he wanted to achieve and so it was either leave, or "suffer on to complete my term".
Poor little lamb. Poor little STILL A FUCKING ADMINISTRATOR all burned out little soldier.
OH THE MANNITTE.
Keen eyed readers will spot one of his two main election pledges was.....
Resigning seven months early takes the absolute piss (they can fit a whole three cases in that time), even more so when he is literally resigning half-way through an Arbitration Case he voted to accept, even though as far as I can tell he had checked out of his responsibilities well before that, since 9 April....I'd like the Committee to be more active in all phases of arbitration cases. ArbCom is necessarily an opaque group, as they handle a good deal of private information, but they don't have to be opaque everywhere. Certain recent cases would have run more smoothly if arbitrators had popped in every once-in-a-while and given a status update on how the Committee understood the issues before it. This can help focus cases and resolve them more quickly with less unnecessary drama. We need less courtroom and more conversation.

Yet another constitutional crisis. Arbs whose terms have expired are allowed to remain active in cases they accepted during their term. So why not people who resign half way through, if that resignation might only be temporary.......
