On Jun 10 2018, I was suspended for 30 days for posting 2 answers. The previous time that I posted anything was Apr 2 2018. Yet I think I could've solved any difficulties without a suspension?
I acknowledge that I oughtn't just reference Youtube; that was my mistake. I didn't transcribe it as watching Carter speak felt more educational. But I offered to transcribe immediately after a moderator deleted it, yet I wasn't permitted to:
Once your suspension is finished, posting a full answer including a link to the Elliot Carter interview would be welcome.
As this post could've been corrected straightaway, the suspension was truly based on 1 answer.
The quotes from Reddit do answer "Why isn't there a classical composer like Beethoven, Chopin or Mozart today?". I'd surmise that the downvotes are due to the anonymity of the authors? If yes, then I truly didn't know that anonymous authors can't be quoted here.
I quote the relevant parts of messages from moderators.
We see that your behavior is showing the same signs as it has on other sites. Posting types of questions you have been told not to post, such as link only answers, off topic questions, and then challenging every deletion or block on meta.
You have so far done the same thing on a few sites, starting off with the same minor issues but escalating over time to a level which is unacceptable. So our patience has worn thin - we expect you to learn, not repeat behaviours that are negative.
As regards 2) yes, once you have been told repeatedly on other sites (including IPS, and even Music.SE previously as well as others that mods elsewhere have informed us about) repeating the same arguments on meta is just not going to work.
I don't understand the reference to IPS or "other sites". Some questions have been downvoted, but some've been highly upvoted. Furthermore, I'm not sure how different sites, with different policies, can be fairly compared for suspending someone.
Again, as this suspension was for one answer, the other sentences feel a tad disproportionate? The meaning of "off-topic" isn't obvious, like this. When I saw my questions being closed as "off-topic", I stopped posting and checked on Meta first.
I'm obviously no musicologist, but I'd loathe to see other experts leave here (like on Math SE) because of disagreement with moderators.
If there's anything that I can improve, please educate me. I'm now frightened to post anyways, and will try harder not to thin anyone's patience here.
