All the reasons you listed are potential reasons. Not everyone is going to have the same idea for leaving this site. The couple people that I've known that have deactivated felt this place was consuming too much of their time and needed to break away. Simply not logging on was still too tempting for them. I have seen others just say they have been on here too long and are bored or want to move onto other things. Then there are people who were harassed too many times and needed to leave in order to help their mental and/or emotional health.
No, because it's not a difficult concept. People leave websites all the time. Whether it's from lack of time, boredom, or harassment, or whatever, eventually they're going to lose interest and leave. Life goes on.
I don't usually wonder since people leave this site for many reasons. I, myself, have left several times with no intentions of coming back so it would only be a small step beyond that to deactivate my account, However, there is one girl I used to speak to on a regular basis who deactivated her account without notice. I figured, "Whatever", she's off to bigger and better things" except she made a new account and has returned to GAG so it does make me wonder.
It not necessary that it has to be site and it's members, members who join here have their reasons to join and when they leave or deactivate their accounts they have their own reasons too, not necessary that those reasons have to be because of this site and how the members treat them here.
Sometimes if I got close to them I wonder why but because I was close to them I usually know why or no somebody who knows - I think I was only shocked by the instant departure of a few but the rest of them I understood why they felt the need to change.
People leave for different reasons. Sometimes they say and sometimes they don't. I don't worry about it. The only time I care is if it's someone I used to talk to a lot. Though even then I only talk to like one person off here and that's outside of here.
