...signed with "FT2" while asking me to provide my phone number, employer information and other personal information in order to change the false charges made against a deceased friend and co-worker.
Seriously? That's outrageous.
Is that a common practice on the part of arbcom members? I don't believe we've heard many stories of that nature, but then again, what you have there sounds like a rather unusual situation (though you'd think they'd have seen just about everything at this point).
FT2 in particular is given to this. It was so in my case, but didn't realise until Giano mentioned this, that this is common practice.
I might add the charge against me of 'off wiki harrassment' mainly relates to something I said in an email reply to FT2. But why not? He initiated it by unsolicited communication, on an account that is used by my children. I objected to the revolting links he was including and said he was 'sick'. He reacted very badly to this and the rest is history.

Yes, I have the emails to prove it, but I do not know who I can trust to send them to. I don't know if Wikipedia administrators have "spies" here acting as agents to get more information to use against others who question them.
Ooo, I am so angry I could spit. lol.
Yes there are spies here (e.g. Postlethwaite who will not hesitate to personally attack you here, if he wants).
But there are many people who can be trusted with a PM. E.g. Somey, for one.
