No longer very active for a multitude of reasons; see Tired of Stack Overflow for some of them.

Another reason is Stack Overflow's treatment of Monica. Whatever your position on the alleged CoC violations (reasonable people can disagree about this), Monica is treated as a random anonymous internet troll instead of a dedicated good-faith volunteer with years of outstanding service. I find the lack of empathy and kindness and the extreme inflexibility from Stack Exchange absolutely bewildering. They've repeatedly and unrepentantly kicked Monica in the teeth over a minor disagreement about the CoC. SE's refusal to engage in discourse or even acknowledge any complaints – no matter how reasonably phrased – is in itself a major violation of the spirit of the CoC.
