I don't think I deserve all the credit, or blame — depending on how you see things — for chasing away the founder and the followers.

Well, posting history is often interesting.

In 2006 he had over 600 posts.
In 2007 he had around 500 posts.
In 2008 that dropped to 150 or so.
In 2009 there were less than 50.
In 2010 only about 25.
In 2011 roughly 50.
In 2012 maybe 10, total.

I wonder what happened in late 2007? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?

I do remember him telling me in 2007 that there was no reason to worry about the banks, that there was too much regulation of them already, and that they wouldn't do anything stupid because that kind of short-term thinking would be harmful to their business.

Coincidence, probably.
