Proposal Title: Delegate Suspension: Fractal Visions
Proposal Type: Delegate Suspension
A community member has filed a report, substantiated by documentation, against Fractal Visions
Discord name: Fractal Visions#7535
Delegation address: 0xC4FC57Dedd2463314A3fD2DBadB86B4404C257e5
Reported violation: Intentional doxxing
Enforcement type: Suspension
As outlined in the delegate code of conduct, suspensions are appropriate when there has been ”Repeated violation of community standards, including sustained inappropriate behavior, or severe violation, including discrimination, harassment, intentional doxxing, dishonesty, or undisclosed self-dealing.”
The below is adapted from the community member’s report. It has been anonymized and edited slightly for understandability. This report is unrelated to L2DAO or the receipt of any grant funding.
Fractal Visions, and some other affiliated community members, misunderstood what project I was working on and then linked my identity to opnames (opnames.org). In the project support channel of Optimism Official Discord, I tried to explain my project is different. In order to prove it, I presented our past honors including BNB/Dorahacks hackathon winners, Polygon grants, etc. and I shared my Linkedin and Twitter account with Optimism Foundation team members in a group chat with Fractal Visions where I was reporting the issue.
When Fractal Visions read my info, he doxed me using my photo and claiming that I am a scammer from opnames team. He posted my information, along with my photo, in Optimism Official Discord, misled other op ambassadors and community members to believe that I am the founder of opnames and made them falsely believe I am a scammer. He also said some negative things about myself, some related to age discrimination and racial discrimination, and an affiliate of Fractal’s shared my personal photo on Twitter.
I got sick after his doxing attacks and disrespectful wording for 2 weeks, and just recovered recently. Because of his attacks, many people don’t trust myself and my project, and wrongly believe I am from opnames.org project. Fractal Vision removed his messages in the discord channel to avoid investigations, however, I have documented screenshots.
The reporter included 6 files documenting the doxxing as well as screenshots of conversations substantiating the above claims. We have not reproduced them here to protect the reporter’s identity.
If a vote for suspension is approved by the Token House, the delegate will be suspended from Discord and Discourse and any sort of interaction within the community for a period of three months. A “Yes” vote indicates that you believe a severe violation of the code of conduct has occurred and the delegate should be suspended.
If a vote for suspension is not approved by the Token House, the delegate will remain active in the community without interruption.
According to the procedures outlined in the delegate code of conduct, the reported violation is a severe violation, which is enforced via a delegate suspension proposal. These proposals may only be submitted by the Foundation and therefore will automatically move to a vote. The Foundation’s role in code of conduct enforcement is purely administrative and since a report was filed with supporting evidence a Token House vote on the matter must occur in Cycle 11, as outlined in the most recent version of the operating manual.
