Somewhat over a month ago I flagged a posted by Dr. Jake Beale and explained that he had been stalking and harrassing me and had posted an irrational and dishonest ad hominem attack against me in extraordinarily rude language in comments under a question.
The user called "StrongBad" later wrote this about that flag:
We saw the flag, discussed it amongst ourselves and the SE employees. We decided that it would be best if an SE employee handled the issue. I believe when the flag was cleared, you received a message saying essentially "give us some time". The SE employees are busy, but I am sure they will get to the issue.
I haven't heard anything from them.
Let us note Jake Beale's words:
@MichaelHardy Is this about your same rant on mathematical fraud? Because it sure sounds like it, and you're ranting in the comments again as well. Please go set yourself up a blog or something where you can explain your views in a clear long-form format rather than trying to shoehorn them into the StackExchange format. – jakebeal May 18 at 5:12
That is about as rude as people ever get, with no apparent motive besides the fact that he didn't like an opinion I expressed in a DIFFERENT question on a DIFFERENT topic. And it referred to a question in which I made no attempt to defend the opinion he considered "ranting" but I was only asking for advice about where to publish it. Nonetheless he considered the question "ranting".
At one point I was told I should not contact Jake Beale by email. The fact is, I did so exactly once, on May 18, 2015, and the email was polite and very short. It said this:
You need to understand this answer:
That was my entire and only email to him. It apparently inspired him to complain to moderators that I was "stalking and harrassing" him. "Stalking" and "harrassing" correctly describe what he did, quoted above.
"StrongBad" wrote the words I attribute to him or her above: "I am sure they will get to the issue". I haven't heard from them. Will the matter be dealt with?
PS: I now find a moderator mistakenly informing me in comments below that I had some other means to contact the moderators besides posting this present question. That same moderator earlier actually recommended posting here as a way of contacting the moderators.
