Why was this post migrated to mechanics.se?

It shouldn't have been. Migration should only happen when something is OFF TOPIC HERE, and on topic there. This is clearly an on topic Electrical Engineering question. The mod who migrated it single-...

Unfair use of Moderation tools

2020 Moderator Election — Community Interest Check

I would consider it despite some doubt that I'd get elected, having lost in both of the other EE.SE moderator elections that I ran in. (I have the T-shirts to prove it if you don't want to dig into ...

Maybe I'm two more deleted comments closer to a suspension

Low quality question tag?

You have a history of asking poor questions. These get downvoted and/or closed, and the system has locked you out as a result. This is to protect the site from more of the same crap you've already ...

Obliterate the "high" tag
