I've been on this site for about 2 years now., and I have definitely seen people leave this site, usually without warning. People that have been on this site for 3 years or longer, just close their profiles and leave the site, usually without warning
There have been some cool people that have left the site entirely (as in their profile are deleted). There are VERY few users left on this site, that I consistently chat with, that have been on longer than me. :(
So, to my fellow users, why do you think that users, that have been on for years, and accumulated 5 figures of XPer, and plenty of contacts...
...delete their profiles?

Well, a lot of the fun people have left or rarely come on, and the questions get repetitive, especially if you've been on here for a while, so it does get boring. There aren't as many playful, and often nonsensical yet entertaining questions/answers that stay up long, even if it's harmless. This site's a bit too serious and strict in recent times. There have always been rules, but they weren't as enforced as before, and I guess people miss that. Often I hear even fairly reasonable posts are being taken down.
Anyway, there are other reasons too. Everyone has their own life to think about, and people want to move on, feeling their time is being wasted on here or they no longer want to stay. Some realize they're spending way too much time on here and it's doing them more harm than good. There are also users who experience a lot of negativity from others (especially if they're popular), and some get fed up dealing with it. Can't say I blame them.
A lot of times friends leave, (some of the people I was closest to have left), and so that's one more reason not to stay. I think it's actually among the most important reasons people decide to leave.4
