I'm inferring that this is what has happened, but I'd prefer to believe I wasn't actually targeted; so if I'm being paranoid, please move on to 2.
I believe one of the high-level users got together with a mob of his friends or dummy accounts and effectively had my StackOverflow account banned.
I've come to have the impression that Stack Overflow is an open-minded place that nurtures both sense and creativity among a diverse group of users with a broad spectrum of personalities. I feel that one of the users didn't like the fact that I had altered one of his answers. The code produced an incorrect result. I changed the code slightly, such that it produced the desired effect. It was a change to the code that we had discussed, and to which he had responded: 'That sounds like something I would do.' Can't be sure, because the post was deleted and hidden. Anyway, it was a very minor alteration. He changed it back and gave me an importunate response in comment. It still said:
This produces the correct, desired result
That line was misleading, because the result was not correct. I altered that to say:
This produces the following result
Or something of that nature. I can't be sure, for the reason listed above. He had cited the code, specifically, as the reason for the rollback, so I didn't think this change was going too far. He sure did.... He deleted the entire thread of comments, and his answer, in such a way that none of it can any longer be seen and then went on a rampage, casting close votes and down votes on my other questions.
I noted in the comments at one question, specifically, an extremely objective point of observation that the reason listed for closing my question did not line up. And now, questions are no longer being taken from my account.
This kind of abuse goes well beyond corruption. It's one thing to have a strong, or even cynical personality. I don't think that people need to constantly present with a happy or loving disposition: it's not only unrealistic, but it seems to be a common justification for misbehavior--'the attitude card'.
Going around and banning anyone who has the insight to correct an individual's mistakes is incompetent and grossly corrupt. Even if the reason my asking privileges have been lifted isn't due to this, the spam is annoying. People shouldn't be allowed to resort to such a filthy crime. In the end, it's not good for her nor I. It can't be good for his self esteem, to stoop. Isn't there a way to prevent this? I'm not the only one with this kind of issue:
What is the typical response to serial voting and similar abuse? When can I expect action to be taken in my case?
Assuming my questioning privileges were revoked for another reason, how can I get specific information regarding my case? The general message is 'maybe you can get your asking privileges back and maybe not.' If I'm asking questions in a way that admins disagree with, and the complaint is reasonable, I feel they should be more than willing to share the reason with me (for example, 'you edit your questions too often', or, 'your questions are too frequent', or, 'you need to answer at least one question per question you ask, and you're not answering a lot of questions')?
Those are things I would suspect, second. You know what my first assumption is.... So, if this isn't an abuse case (which it more than likely is), then how can I get the confrontation I need to discover whether or not I can turn myself around?
