You have posted this several times. While the association may not be able to foreclose on the lien they have already filed, all they have to do is file a new lien and it can go back five years from the date they are filing. The association has not waived any right to collect the debt by foreclosing. They have waived the right to collect any monthly assessment that is more than five years old, but not all assessments. Each monthly assessment is a new debt. If they file a lien today, they can collect assessments going back to December 2008.
You do not have a case for slander of title or FDCPA. FDCPA does not apply to creditors. It applies only to third party collectors. The association is not a third party. Slander of title requires publication to a third party and damages.
There is no defense to non-payment of assessments to an association. Just because you did not pay assessments for more than five years does not mean you never have to pay assessments again. You need to work out a payment plan with your association or consider a chapter 13 bankruptcy to allow you to pay the past due assessments over a 5-year period.

You are obligated to pay the assessments on the unit you own. If you do not pay, you are breaking your promises and cheating the association and your fellow residents. You apparently think you can get out of your legal obligation with blue smoke and mirrors. The law doesn't work that way. Pay the assessments that you owe.
