Jessica <kotomi.tan...@gmail.com>, Tue, 17 Mar 2009 00:50:45 -0700 (PDT):I blocked this user for inappropriate username (using the "use your
real first name and initial" reason) a while ago and have received
several e-mails from him subsequently. I have made it abundantly clear
that he is still welcome to sign on accordingly, but I am not
reversing my decision.
However, given his last e-mail and the veiled threats contained
therein, I thought I would give the committee a heads up, seeing as
he's now threatening to approach other admins to appeal, and I would
rather not waste everybody's time. If he is being like over a user
name, is this really somebody we want on board?

Thanks for taking time to respond to my attempts at understanding your
Regarding your reference below to my '...repeated emails...':
Your CP userpage showed you as being present online each of the times
I visited your userpage. When you did not reply to the initial
webmail, although your CP userpage said you were online, I sent
followup webmails in hope of catching a busy CP Amin's attention.
Since your email below says you had no chance until yesterday to read
anything sent you by me, I assume you read my sendings to you all at
Therefore, one may excuse your apparent, and erroneous, assumption of
ulterior motive in my '...repeated emails...' to you in trying to
signup, Ma'am. Your clumsily veiled hints regarding my motives in
signing up are no more than indicative of certain biases within you,
and of your reflexive v. reflective decisions.
As well, the address in your reply below of only one among the valid
points raised in my prior sendings could give rise to imputations of
conclusion-jumping and motive-assignment on your part, Ma'am.
Since my good faith desire to assist in growing CP assumes your
sincere like intent, I have avoided making veiled ad hominem
accusations as you have done in your email below.
In your reply to my sincere requests for information which would help
me understand your rationale, you have done no more than state your
In making no mention of any of the routine methods of appealing Admin
decisions such as yours, you imply strongly there are no alternate
avenues for use by anyone who might disagree with one of your
decisions, though you know that such appeals are routine in CP.
You have not substantively answered any of my politely phrased and
courteously toned queries raising legitimate points concerning the
arbitrary form in which you have imposed your will in this matter.
In your only sending to me, you did not address me as a person at all,
despite my continual and continued extension of such routine
courtesies to you, Ma'am.
From the above, as well as from other factual and behavioral
indications in your CP writing and your correspondence with me, it
would be easy to infer that you have within your character a number of
negative personal and emotional biases which may prevent you not only
from making reasonable decisions regarding CP, but also from using the
sort of everyday civility routine among adults.
Please respond in substance to the points I respectfully and
courteously raised in my prior sendings to you, Ma'am.
Short of a meaningful reply from you within a reasonable time frame, I
shall begin the process of appealing your ruling to other CP
Thank you again for all the work you have done on and for CP,
I look forward to working with you toward bettering CP over many
coming years, Ma'am.
