Q: I am getting harassed on code golf stackexchange who should I report it to?

Doctor RealityA user on this platform @xnor is harassing me. Who should I report him to? He is closing all of my posts every time and getting his friends to downvote my posts and trash talk me every time I post. Where do I report his harassment to?

The easiest way to discard part of your reputation: put a bounty on a low-quality post that nobody will be posting an answer.
 
7:24 AM
When the low-quality challenge gets closed, there will not be anyone who's able to answer the challenge.
 
7:37 AM
@a'_' What if the low-quality post gets closed before you can put a bounty on it (2 days)?
 
8:19 AM
@NewMainPosts I'm a little confused. Why was the question closed when we usually allow golfing tips and leave them open?
I mean, I'm alright with the question being closed.
I'm just curious, that's all.

Q: Counting Distinct Real Roots of Low-Degree Polynomials

Zachary HunterChallenge: I want to know about the real roots of polynomials. As a pure mathematician, I care about the existence of such roots, rather than their numeric values. The challenge is to write the shortest program that takes a polynomial, of degree at most 4, and simply returns how many distinct re...

I'd try to tag my name... a'_' a''_
 
1:20 PM
@NewMainPosts Because the tips question already provides the optimal way to solve the problem... other users aren't able to golf it.
By "optimal" I mean there currently isn't an answer that golfs the sample solution.
 
2:00 PM
CGCC posts seem to follow the pattern: A negatively-voted post, a one-digit voted post, a 10<x<19 voted post, and a >20 voted post.
Some people are fortunate enough to post just at the right time to get a lot of upvotes; others, not as fortunate.
 
2:20 PM
@Adám I don't get why some of those posts were vandalized after the asker got their answer...

So, I'm looking at one of my older answers, and saw that I can golf some more bytes off. Since the challenge has been "dead" for years, is it worthwhile to update my answer, or should I just forget it?

RGSDescription of the problem Imagine a quarter of an infinite chessboard, as in a square grid, extending up and right, so that you can see the lower left corner. Place a 0 in there. Now for every other cell in position (x,y), you place the smallest non-negative integer that hasn't showed up in the...
