Starting point, the question asked by user2501323:
Recently, we all heard Greta's emotional speech about climate and world problems. I was a bit surprised, how that small girl could climb so high - into UN tribune. Then I opened wiki, but didn't find anything about its support from big funds/millionaries/something other. I heard that her family supports her, but I wonder, if that is enough to climb into UN?
Question is, does there exist some big fund/billionare/politics who stands above Greta? If no, then it's very impressive way - from school to UN tribune.
My problem is the following. Does situation when a random kid, moreover suffering from autism, so being in even worse position to play crowds well, suddenly becomes a global celebrity is surprising interesting outlier? Yes. Is natural to ask about source of success? Yes.
OK. But there is a problem. The family of this kid were prior already quite rich, very influential (local celebrities) and were investing in green business. Suddenly big part of the success starts making sense, regardless of any support of third parties or lack thereof.
However, there is a problem - as worded the question effectively ask for support of third parties and I can not rule all of it out, while that's what the question ask for.
Thus I ask the following question:
Her family is an affluent upper class people, with effective control of 2 companies, including one stock market company earning on fighting AGW and one pro-ecological foundation. So if anything, I'd say that she is just a kid making a publicity stunt to support a family business, which would be usually considered as proper thing to do. In your question you ask whether someone is helping her parents, but I'm not sure whether you're also interested about her parents being influential and rich enough not to need extraordinary amount of help.
There was some answer, in line of "interesting, please sources"
Then those 2 comments disappear. Later user Philip admits he did it. In the same time I write a comment with link:
Inexplicably mainstream media tend to avoid the issue, but matter of what's written in company register seems for me as quite clear and straightforward. https://standpointmag.co.uk/issues/june-2019/gretas-very-corporate-childrens-crusade/
It also disappears. Thus, before escalating the issue, I tried politely to ask user to stop abusing his powers, while asking the other user, to properly rephrase the question.
@Philipp Would you please end your abusive behaviour of deleting question specifying comments? user2501323 May you rephrase your question, so details of her family being already rich, well connected and controlling a listed company in green business, would not risk being considered as off topic?
Unfortunately this got deleted too, with answer:
Comments deleted. Please don't use comments to answer the question. If you would like to answer, please post a real answer which adheres to our quality standards. If you do, please also be critical of your sources. While I did some cursory research on the topic I stumbled upon a lot of baseless speculation from conspiracy theorists.
So it becomes even more interesting:
- I can not ask the user to rephrase the question, while pointing out why it would make some sense
- If I answered question as it is, it would be fine to downvote my answer on grounds that maybe it's interesting but actually off topic
- he can not claim that he is just protecting from offtopic discussion, because he already used two sentences to express his negative opinion about preliminary sources.
Regrettably, that's not the only case of his abusive behaviour. He already abused his powers to delete my answer under excuse of antisemitism, even though my whole way reasoning was based on the fact that accusation against Jews are groundless. As he is clearly intelligent enough to understand that, I unfortunately have to assume maliciousness.
It's not about those questions as such, but about such persistent behaviour. (if only one case happened, I'd assume that was just accident, bad day or misunderstanding) Is there any good formal or informal way to make him stop such behaviour?
