Hi Chris and everyone
Thanks for the reply but its not really the type of assistance I need at this stage. I have gone though most technical precautions (that I can), not that I should have to be wasting any of my time dealing with the issue at all. I have been trying to get the character to help reasonably for two months that failed. I should not have to put any significant resource into dealing with an issue like this at all. All reasonable steps have been gone through. I'm not going into details. I am dealing with many processes and organisations to achieve a resolution or dispute processes. I should not have to do this. I was also bullied and slandered on a major forum by web hosting people, supported by their moderators who joined in the slander and attacks on me. That is also under investigation. As is anyone who obstructs what is going on. It may have nothing to do with the current situation (an attack on my business and reputation) but those attacks have occurred over the years on many other forums and even in professional slander within organisation. That is unfinished business too.
I am certainly not engaging a consultant. Unnecessary expense too. I am asking please for material advice or professsional advice from a society of professional colleagues in an emergency. This society and forum is full of many people at all levels of seniority in many major organisations, here in Australia and overseas. I am an alumnus of several of those powerful organisations. Several of them have been my clients over the years. Many of them have trusted me with projects, analysix/modeling, data etc
Let me outline the issue. Anyone can check my resume, experience, education, history online. I will outline some of it here.
I started my professional dedicated life at high school as most serious professional people do. They invest most of their lives in trying to achieve at the highest level, to contribute professionally at the highest level. They act professionally with everyone they deal with. They invest many times the effort and energy they have to stress themselves out on behalf of their clients. They even make themselves sick trying to do their best for their clients. Its not desirable but it is what a true professional does. I am nearing the end of a successful and high achieving career and do not like anyone slandering me or undermining everything I have worked for and achieved, the reputation I have. Nobody. It may not have involved becoming a professor or anything like that but what people like me do is be one of those people (usually quietly) working to help the community (local or global) in many ways, usually unacknowledged. A few people occasionally are nice enough to do so. People like me deserve no professional disrespect or slander at all. We do not deserve to face anything other than fair competition. No dirty tricks. No attempts to destroy businesses and reputation.
Material assistance or advice could include the following (or many other things)
1. Give me a call. I may be able to help deal with the guy who is causing you problems. Professionally. Its easy to find out who it is
2. I can setup trusted professional web and email hosting/forwarding for you (for a reasonable fee). I have the resources or my organisation does to help out a colleague in need, who actually does not have the resources (health or otherwise) to even try to find a solution to this situation forced on him by an unreasonable denial of an essential service - one provided to me without trouble for 17+ years. it should require no demands on me at all. Note my requirements are minute in terms of storage, traffic and email, even the spammers don't seem to send much.
I am asking nicely if anyone, including all those highly senior professionals in our society can help out in a real way please. For a colleague in need who does not deserve it. And has not deserved any of the slanders or trolling he has experienced in many forums for many years. Who knows if any of it is linked to destroying a competitor (which I am not), to undermining someone seen as too knowledgeable. Strange that a highly experienced knowledgable person would be seen as a threat to anyone. But that is the world
But I only have 8 days to arrange email hosting for two domains. Otherwise I am in trouble. Hoping someone can assist. This is a very serious situation. As I said I am an alumnus of many august institutions, many fellow alumni would share this forum
But I am not going to let attacks on me, my business, my reputation any way be attacked or undermined in any way at all. I do not deserve that
PS (always an afterthought with my posts. thanks for edit capability). Appealing to one of my societies is almost a last resort. Full of busy professional people. I do not do it lightly. I had to get assistance from another of my societies in desperate straights once, when nobody else would help. They were there for me
PPS Another thing that professional people such as myself feel when faced with attacks such as this is a broken heart. It has happened a few times. It genuinely breaks a heart to face cruelty and injustice - seemingly intentionally, unnecessarily and without care for the client at all. Many of us let clients down from time to time. But that should make you feel bad, not your client
PPPS I realise this list is not the Society. etc I may formally ask the Society for assistance soon. I'm asking more broadly among esteemed respected professional colleagues and (previously perhaps) competitors for some serious assistance please
PPPPS At the risk of TLDR, and boring people, maybe not everyone (yet/ever) has experienced professional stress. I don't regard it as an essential part of being professional but it comes close, or at least understanding what it would be like and how debilitating it is - its selectively debilitating. Its a strange thing. Just another of my pet-areas of interest shall we say. I imagine many of you later in careers (even early) have experienced it and can empathise. Maybe it will come along later. As will end of career, need for some peace, and not to have your reputation trashed when you are too exhausted to fight
PPPPPS I have been involved in enough communications with enough responsible parties over the last few months that I am tempted to fight by just expecting them to do their jobs and sort it out without stressing me out any more
