> I also have a question, why all my CR were approved with a 99% threshold? Why are you trying to block all my contributions and requests only now?

### Cycle 8
I called you out on some strange items [in your very first request](https://github.com/bisq-network/compensation/issues/416#issuecomment-559582652) back in Cycle 8.

### Cycle 9
Although I never publicly commented it, I rejected your [Cycle 9 request](https://github.com/bisq-network/compensation/issues/463) in the DAO. The numbers were flat-out ridiculous for anyone familiar with web work. I've built and run a number of digital properties away from Bisq, so I know what I'm talking about. One doesn't need to be an expert in digital marketing to see that asking for 100 BSQ to update the copyright year of a website is unreasonable.

Perhaps contributors would like to know that this already-extreme Cycle 9 number is **half** of what you were going to originally request.

### Cycle 10
Despite all this, I again allowed your request in [Cycle 10](https://github.com/bisq-network/compensation/issues/479) even though I knew it was another extreme one...2000 USD for a domestic trip for 1 day? Crazy. Why did I do it? To be professional to you since there was no prior discussion on trip expenses, and I didn't think rejecting it outright would have been honorable on my part (I noted these concessions [in my approval comment](https://github.com/bisq-network/compensation/issues/479#issuecomment-586314620)). Most importantly, budgeting was just going into practice at the time, and I knew nothing like that could ever happen again.

This isn't a new thing. Your contributions have been suspect since you started contributing. Hindsight is 20/20, and DAO stakeholders feel ripped off.

I will reject this request, and I hope others do too.
