Wassercrats: Why are you still here?by logan (Curate)

OK Wassercrats, I give. I've followed the debate, read your posts, and the various responses, and I simply can't figure it out. Why are you still here?
As far as I can figure out, you posted a script and asked for feedback. The feedback you received was not to your liking, and you removed the code stating that you "no longer want to contribute to this community." That was 5 months ago.
Since that time, the vast majority of your many posts have been complaints about the Monastary and its members, claiming various monks treat you badly and the Monastary is run badly. Periodically, you announce that you're leaving.
Fine. Let's assume that you are completely in the right, that your code is perfect, that your particular style is the one true way to code or one of many valid ways to code (whichever), that you have been abused and martyred without cause, that everyone here is out to get you, and that you are the injured party in all cases.
Assuming all that is true, why are you still here? Why do you devote so much of your time and energy to a community you despise? There's no joke here, no cheap shot, no criticism, no sarcasm, no disingenuousness, and I'm doing my best to treat you with courtesy and respect. I really want to know.
Why are you still here?
