I came here to report about someone who bullied me a few days ago but to my surprise, their account is already temporarily suspended, most likely, within a couple of days from now. But most likely the suspension happened because of someone else maybe "reporting" them. I don't know. It still doesn't solve the problem that, that user deleted my 1 question unnecessarily and by downvoting on some other posts cost me around 40 rep.
But this is not just about the 40 rep or even me in general. When such a thing happened to me, I felt down momentarily for being kind of helpless (my rep was less than 150 then) and I thought that a person with more than 200k rep must be totally immune. But thanks to recent observation, they're not (Great and Way to go MSE! :-)).
So, I have following questions:
- How did they get banned? I mean I get the reasons now but not the triggerer as in the action that brought it into the limelight. Was it some person reporting it here on Meta or community in general patrolling its user on regular basis or is there a button like the flag button to report on some user too such as "Report Bullying" or "Report Abuse".
- If there is no such button, shouldn't there be one so that a user can report such a thing happening to them. (Note: The flag button needs us to visit every question and is less about some user in general, rather, about the question itself. And the harassment may be too spread out, like not just several questions but answers too.)
- How to try/ensure that the user who/whose account was bullied, is restored to its previous unharmed state?
(Not sure which tag this question fits out of: discussion, support, feature-request)
