Couchsurfing International / I inactive my account.

San Francisco, CA, United States
Contact information:

I'm from Taiwan.
I was a host on couchsurfing.com.
I paid 60 USD for verification on couchsurfing.com.
But they inactive my account now.
I want to complaint 2 things to Federal Trade Commission.
Which I already contacted couchsurfing.com, but didn't solve.
1. Reactive my account.
2. Delete libelous, offensive reference on my frofile.
Few days ago, I hosted a japanese girl, Konomi Taki. Once she arrived in Kaohsiung, I went to station to pick her up. I paid UBER, bought snacks, offered my place, took her to Monkey Mountain for her. Well... I might not always smiling, because I have major depressive disorder. But I did my best jod to be a host.

She always asked me " Are you unhappy now?" all the time. She asked this question so often, that almost drived me crazy. I always replied her "No, I'm not unhappy, just tried and sleepy." That's true words base on my real health condition. Because major depressive disorder and the medicine. But she just didn't believe it! In conclusion, we just couldn't get along. One day, my family told me that they will come to my place 2 days later. I had no choice to tell her that she most leave. She told me that she was already looking for a hostel. Because she thought we just couldn't get along. And she didn't want to stay in my place anymore.

Few days later, she blocked me. I was so angry, I left 3 bad reference to her. I knew I was wrong. Because I couldn't register for more than one member account. So, my account is inactive now.

But she also wrote me a libelous, offensive reference.

1st . She said "shady and unreliable", "i needed to check if he's not grumpy or not all the time" . She also said "DON'T RECOMMEND THIS PERSON TO ANYONE". I think those words are a kind of defamation, and also against the Terms of Use 4.1.(a), 4.1.(e) on couchsurfing.com.

2nd . She was not telling the truth. She said "This guy will cancel on you at the last minute". But the truth is, she already planned to leave before I told her that my family will coming. She just want to leave a negative reference to me.
3rd. I was looked "shady", because I have major depressive disorder and the medicine. It's really immoral to blame someone because of his disease.

Here is the original reference she leaved to me.

WARNING!
This is the first time I write a BAD reference.
Worst host ever!
This person is really shady and unreliable!! He left me 3 bad references with fake accounts! This is against the Couchsurfing guideline. I already reported this person.
Firstly, he sent me a host request and i happily accepted it. My stay was kinda long and i asked him if its really ok or not (10 nights) then he said its ok! Suddenly he told me he cant host me because his family would come over. Thanks for telling me this after I declined other offers. So be careful if you don't have a backup plan. This guy will cancel on you at the last minute!
he always says "tired" or "sleepy". he only cares about himself... i needed to check if he's not grumpy or not all the time... it was so tiring. He never smiles he never tries to talk!
If you got enough time to make lots of fake accounts to cyberbully someone, go do
something productive. You're wasting your time.
DON'T RECOMMEND THIS PERSON TO ANYONE.
