I always try to find a way to resolve the issue because I don't like seeing anyone leave due to a personal dispute. I may not post in the forums that I do this because it's more of a one-on-one matter, but I really hope that we don't appear to 'not care' when people leave. I always do try to resolve the issue one-on-one. I think it's up to the person who decides to leave to notify everyone why that's happening as it's ultimately their decision.
I do get frustrated sometimes at what can read as a 'why bother' attitude toward talking about it or trying to resolve anything.
