To be clear, the "Android Guy", AKA Joakim, left due to having 
(one or more, can't remember) over-the-line posts deleted. It was 
a personal problem on his part, not any kind of problem with the 
D community (which is by no means perfect, obviously).

A better example is Kenji Hara.

I don't agree that D is "way behind", but its velocity is 
certainly slower than Go/Rust/C++. I think this comes down to 
money=acceleration. However, if you look at what's happened even 
in just the past 7 years, D has "accelerated" dramatically - a 
yearly conference, real companies successfully using D and even 
contributing back to D's development, a far more stable compiler 
and standard library, a thriving package ecosystem... to quote 
Andrei, it's an "embarassment of riches".
