    I ask again... What is your desired endgame here?

    You harp on about democracy, you have put it to a vote in your poll (not that internet or forum polls count for anything). Even if this forum was a democracy (which it isn't) the numbers are currently strongly against you. You stand alone. Does that not tell you something?

    Can I refer you to xkcd: Free Speech, which has the alt-text of

    I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.

    Yeah, most people let their emotions blind them to the truth, as for end game it was to gain the attention of people who COULD revoke his privileges and hopefully get them to properly consider it or at least give him a warning that if he continues with his blatant disregard for user choice, in this case mine to seek the solution to problem Y before problem X (I'm sure there's other cases not related to me, they just need to look, or the users could post their cases here to make it more likely they're seen), then they would revoke his privileges.

    Edit: Got a meeting 2mw so gonna catch some shut eye, I'll probably won't respond until after the meeting
