I don't appreciate being bullied by a group of people who support Thomas Shultz ( and each other ) because i down vote low quality answers by them.
And i don't appreciate this gang ( because thats what they are behaving like ) joining with your staff (JNat) and trying to intimidate me to stop down voting by sending carefully worded emails and messages designed to intimidate.
Thomas Shultz has bullied me on a number of occasions on these forums and on his own Google Plus group over the last year or so. He clearly has an issue with me.
I have also received anonymous threats from different I.P addresses after down voting. If i have a problem with someone, i contact them directly to sort it out and i use my real name.
I don't hide and gather a group of people together for support to try and intimidate one person.
EDIT: Here's the email Thomas Shultz got his buddy (JNat) to send me which makes false claims against me after i down voted 3 of Thomas Shultz's answers:
Re: WordPress Development Stack Exchange: message from moderators re account Brad Dalton
I'm writing in reference to your WordPress Development Stack Exchange account:
I wanted to let you know that we received a complaint citing rudeness from your part when contacting a user through their personal e-mail address. We get it; anyone who's ever tried to engage with others online has probably been tempted to lash out at someone else. This is just a friendly reminder that we require all participants to act in a professional and civil tone when using these sites, and that it is not reasonable to contact a user through their personal e-mail address regarding whatever they may have done on-site to complain. The appropriate course of action would be for you to flag the user's post for moderator attention or to contact the staff so we can have a better look at what has happened.
If this is a simple misunderstanding, no harm done. I just wanted to let you know about our take on this kind of behaviour. Sometimes it is helpful to remind ourselves on occasion that keeping things friendly and constructive doesn't have to be at odds with being right — so enjoy the site, bring your sense of humour, and please be tolerant of others.
