I'm quite willing to let my sysopship go. Some people clearly don't trust me (some probably never have), so for the sake of avoiding an HCM, I'm willing to pass on it.
I would take my sysop rights away, but I can't do that.
There's no point playing martyr. They're too stupid to get the point. I'd keep the sysopship, in case you get harrassed with abusive blocks
