[PART 1] I like to help folks, especially if it is a clear cut issue or easily explained. I do think it is fair to say that I have not posted as much in the past over the past six or eight months.
Still, I am not happy with the fact that I have not been posting as much as I have in the more than ten years that I have had this site open as a resource.

Lots of issues drive that. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned a lot of my professional work on its head. Timelines for cases were halted and then in some cases immediately accelerated. I have, like many parents, become a part-time grade school teacher/IT tech in dealing with my daughter's schooling (and that has also taken a lot of time out of my day).

I have had to navigate new rules and issues with remote hearings (and even more important to most cases, the rules dealing with MEBs, exams, etc.). There are a lot of time issues that have impacted my workflow.

Additionally, I have had a handful (2-3 that really were of concern) members of the site contacting me at my personal email address or via social media demanding answers to questions or laying into me for not helping them. One notable case was where a member private messaged me, told me that I never responded to his questions here, and called me out for it. When I looked up this member's contacts with me, I responded that I never received a message and had no idea what he was referencing. He then continued to lay into me for not helping and said something along the lines of "your site is useless and you offer no help." I don't really want gratitude for information that is provided that can help folks (and should be shared with all members). But, I really don't have the energy to help folks who demand more than I can give and then criticize me for the help offered.

It is on me to acknowledge that I may have taken this to heart over something that is not my fault or issue. But, in a short period of time, people who I am not representing, who are not clear about their issues, and that I owe nothing to but have tried to help via having this forum in the first place have basically harassed me. So, I grew a bit weary of that and it made me less enthused to help folks with my (non-existent) extra time. My having less time than before, then having people harass me has made what I used to enjoy (just helping folks) a lot less enjoyable. At the end of a long day, where I used to enjoy logging in to helping folks or answering posts has recently seemed like a stupid waste of my time. I think excitement or enjoyment of most things waxes and wanes, and I do want to get back here more.
I can be reached via my work website and email. However, those are just that- for my work. There is little likelihood that I will answer or respond to queries about the PEBFORUM that are asking for information at my work contacts when the person is not seeking my professional services.
