I slipped-up and forgot to make a backup of my "solution" before the "jaws of death" closed: [^].
Is that "version" hack still available that someone here (Rage ?) showed me how to use to recover the post ?
Edit: yes, it was ProgramFox showed me how to find a deleted response using the 'version url, and I found it, sans carriage-returns, but otherwise intact.
Unfortunately, I lost my comment to Sergey's comment which was meant to go in my ammunition box

Allow the author to set the Author level at which a member must be in order to vote on his article. This is based on the assumption that most higher level users are actually programmers and have a certain level of maturity and integrity.
The default would be ALL, but other levels would be Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
Also, allow the author to contest a vote that is not tied to reporting a message as abuse or spam. Another option in the report icon menu could be "Unjustified".

I can understand your concern but that won't help as all will start setting level as platinum and in most of the case i have seen,members going through and making use of the Article are bronze or silver levels.
We have rating system in place especially to handle such cases. These negative voting will not make any effect. As per as the recent case is concerned, member is under process and will be no more within few hours.
If you still find such members who always see everything negatively, mention them at SA watch and necessary action will be taken (We had found such members in past).

When approving a forum message from the moderation queue, it will be shown as modified (" [modified]" appended to the subject). This might irritate the poster.
Also the message count on the user's profile will count such messages twice. I just noticed this behaviour with a new member posting his first message. When then openning the Lates Messages list, there will be only one message shown.
I see that you're new to Code Project. First of all, please let me welcome to the community - it's a great place to be, and people will generally try to help out. Saying that, there are a couple of things that you should be aware of.
First of all, this part of the site is intended for people who want to suggest a new feature for the site, or who want to report a bug in the site. This isn't the place to pose a programming question.
Second point - people will help you with issues. They are highly unlikely to just hand over fully working systems for you. If you're lucky, you might find an article that does exactly want and that's great; the articles are what makes this site great after all. If there are no articles, then people will answer specific programming problems, but you have to show that you have tried things, and you should highlight where things are going wrong.
He sure is. After reading arrogant and often technically shallow responses from people, and assuming even momentarily that the site's not what it used to be, you then come across guys like Pete and feel comfortable in that - for every idiot out there, CP has intelligent, smart-thinking folks like Pete!

I've looked into the things you posted on the days you were reported. Your account was not closed for an isolated incident, but rather over time. I would say to please avoid posting links to third party sites and products, and avoid accepting your own solution as the answer wherever possible.
