At this time I am considering options to mitigate the damage to my contributions.

Let me make this perfectly clear... "spam" serves ONLY three purposes.

First to "proselytize" (eg. the goal of a "shill"... is to steal using embezzlement tactics such as "clickbait").

Second to "defraud" (eg. the goal of a "swindler"... is to steal using embezzlement tactics such as "charge back").

Third to "vandalize" (eg. the goal of a "vandal"... is to deface using trespassing tactics such as "spoofing").

I retired from a career in loss prevention (including serving @ "ground zero" in NYC during 911 losing one of my subordinates and sustaining permanent injuries while charged with the responsibility of investigating and eliminating these type of activities.

To be cast in this light... to me is disturbing... disrespectful and highly offensive.

Please cite these posts or thread where you say that there is offense to you. I will look at it and see what can be done. Open dispute on the forum is not desirable neither for you and neither for the community.

First... I have NEVER engaged in dispute only instead the choice of dissent which comes from my right to agree to disagree (aka. "to disagree w/o being disageeable"). I can't say that others have done the same. That stated... I have no interest in being "my brothers keeper" either. As they say... "to each his own".

Therefore.. citation is moot. But the narrative ("spam") is relevant which ALL mods with few exceptions have weaponized to vandalize my accounts for years using draconian sanctions.

This authoritarian abuse spans 6yrs and wiped out 3 accounts containing years of untold community contributions under the pretext of policy to conceal biased hatred.

All of this easily avoided by reaching out reasonably through PM if there was a concern... instead of hiding in an ivory tower. It will take months or even years to mitigate the damage to my accounts.

Policy can only be a draconian default... without "outreach" the absence of which is the ultimate failure of an arbitrary and capricious system.

You can trust that I spent my career before retirement tirelessly and thanklessly enforcing policy (even to the point of permanently damaging my health) . And you can take it to the bank... that I have forgotten more than most have learned regarding this subject.

Now begins the process of rebuilding my mutilated contributions.

Going forward it should be a given that instead of the gatekeepers choosing to shoot from
the hip... it makes more sense for them to reach out through PM when there are concerns.
