I find the above extremely patronizing and condescending. I am an adult 
- I can speak for myself if it were necessary.

There is an important issue at stake. An issue that for me is based 
exclusively on a technical and procedural rift. I do have emotions 
attached to this, sure. But I am keeping them out of this discussion.

You know better than most the only reason I am walking away is because I 
can't self-fund the time required.

Your repeated suggestions that this is all about the "toll" and the 
"burnout" and whathaveyou are not factual, not constructive, and 
therefore not welcome.

Please stop re-focusing the conversation.
