I wasn't aware that my private e-mail was any of your (collective)
business; but since you consider that it is, what are you going to do
about the person, from this community, who has twice sent me offensive
e-mails, suggesting that I seek psychiatric help?
>* Engaging in wiki edit wars
It takes two (at least) to do so. If I did that (and I note again that
no evidence is provided, and no supposed broken rules cited), where are
the sanctions against the other party/ies?
>* Excessive argumentativeness for the sake of debate
If you're going to take actions based on my supposed reasons for doing
something (again something uncited and unproven), you're going to need
to find someone whose telepathic skills are more reliable than whoever
it is you're using at present. Otherwise, such vague accusations might
be seen as suggesting that you're inventing arbitrary thought-crimes for
reasons which are neither neutral or just.
>These are traits he has been warned about before
That's a lie.

As is that.

No: there is no "clear contradiction", since both that guideline and
what I'm accused of a vague and intangible.
And in what way is the implication that I'm a "jerk" in compliance with

Whereby, the partially-anonymous clique which "governs" this initiative
proves once again that it is unfit to do so.

I regard the expression of regret as totally insincere.
