RE: The decisions

Usiek, have you as the PSGRiP president decided to ignore my question?

Marek Gorzecki (aka Alicecooper), a member of the PSGRiP board, publicly stated on this forum that I had "tried to blackmail" the PSGRiP. He wrote his post in English, and blackmail is an extremely serious word in the English language and means a criminal offence. To understand how this word is used in English, open the Oxford dictionary of the English language and read the definition of this word: "The action, treated as a criminal offence, of demanding payment or another benefit from someone in return for not revealing compromising or damaging information about them." Link: Sure, this word is occasionally used figuratively, like in "emotional blackmail," but that requires a proper context or hints indicating a figurative use, like the word "emotional." If you simply say that Person A blackmailed or tried to blackmail Organization B, it is always understood in the English language as an accusation of a crime. So Marek's post as it stands is an accusation of a crime, at least from the standpoint of the language his post is written in.

Having been publicly depicted as a criminal by a PSGRiP board member who said you as the PSGRiP president can be asked to confirm his words, I have no other choice but to clarify the matter before the community.

I am therefore formally asking you to officially provide an answer to the following question: Does the PSGRiP consider me to have committed a criminal offence of blackmail against the PSGRiP? To put it simply: does the PSGRiP consider me a criminal?
