I believe I have done well on this, and with some difficulty given

I wrote the original form of that response last night and decided to
sleep on it.

I rewrote it this morning into as factual as form as I could make it.
Do feel free to review every post he has made regarding this review,
and decide for yourself if my analysis of his behaviour is accurate.
That is all I asked for.

For the record, I requested that the moderators intervene regarding
his behaviour early on in this review as I felt no good was going to
come of it. They declined to do so. We are now where I feared we
would end up unfortunately, but what other choice was I left? I don't
like bullies, and I am going to call them on their behaviour if
nobody else will.
