  • I read some stuff about Jeff, I thought he stepped down? Maybe I need to read more. – James Sep 15 '13 at 12:03
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about other people's private business. – Rosinante Sep 15 '13 at 12:41

    @Rosinante not if the answers are from public sources, as per below :) – James Sep 15 '13 at 13:47
  • I just want to know the reason of my question getting this much anonymous downvotes at least give the reason as comment. – Rajesh Paul Sep 15 '13 at 13:54
  • @RajeshPaul Only those who did it could say. And clearly they haven't said. All I can guess is this is likely searchable info and didn't need a question... – James Sep 15 '13 at 14:01

    I didn't downvote but like @James said, you could find this by searching in Google or taking a look in the About page of Stack Exchange main site. James, Jeff did step down but he's still one the people who founded Stack Exchange. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Sep 15 '13 at 14:22
  • I simply thought one thing- If I have to know about a person a very basic info **should I ask him or someone else**??? This situation is analogous to what I just did. – Rajesh Paul Sep 15 '13 at 14:52
  • @RajeshPaul fair point but still, one is expected to do some research even here on Meta before posting. :) – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Sep 15 '13 at 17:27
