Please stop immediatly!

I've certainly not elected you, I'm not even a member of the FSFE or 
your abusive fellowship of data robbers, and I certainly haven't 
participated on any election.

You have "sequestered" my personal data for the good of your personal 
agenda, and hosted it on systems of other parties. I see that as 
extremely big abuse of my personal rights.

I don't care about anything else you have to say, because you haven't 
regret it or asked for pardon.

Your abusive and entitled attitude, shows me that they were probably 
right in taking those measures. Now stop making us wasting any of our 
collective valuable time.
