Re: Dojo loyalty or personal gain?

If I leave my current dojo to go practice with someone else (maybe one of the runaway sempai) am I committing a huge breach of protocol? I feel like I would be insulting sensei to do this, but I also feel like I need to find someplace where I get positive energy when I'm on the mat.
Many folks do change dojos, for a variety of reasons.
It's not "insulting" in and of itself--people come and go-- but you may find that you''ve burned a bridge and can't return to the original dojo, depending on how you make your exit.
