Once upon a time I signed a pledge for Mediation in Good Faith, the other
party had multiple undisclosed Conflicts of Interest. When Arbitration
commenced, continuing in Good Faith, I was viciously defamed in front of the
whole Community.  ArbCom did nothing. After remaining silent for one year to
prove my Good Faith again, I began talking about.

I have diffs to support everything I say.  When will the Foundation, or
Jimbo, act to remove the defamations against me embalmed in Arbitration
rulings and the Communities consciousness?  I get no pleasure discussing
this experience, but I will not be intimidated into silence either.
