Possibly there is a minor problem with your knowledge of

"Relieve: 3 . Release from a post or from performance of duty."
Merriam Webster Dictionary, Simon and Schuster 1974

"Relieve: 5 To free from a specific duty"
American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

It does not specify whether one quit or is involuntarily
replaced. In fact, in the military relief from command takes
place every time a new officer assumes command of a unit. Guards
are relieved when the next guard shows up. So unless you are
still the editor of the MUFON Journal, you were relieved, even
if it was a voluntary departure on your part.

As for "sticking your neck out" for Victoria's articles, I
believe that both were published on their own merit. One was on
use of forensic methodology and the other original research on a
religious survey. Both papers addressed key UFO issues and have
been cited by others in subsequent works.

And for the other ranting, Prozac or Valium might help.
