I've left a comment on an answer asking the answers's author to follow serverfault's guidelines, namely "quote the most relevant part of an important link". I'm sure it had no epithets or insults and was straight to the point.
My comment was (it was made available to me now):
@MichaelHampton according to serverfault answer guidelines you should provide context to your links: "Always quote the most relevant part of an important link, in case the target site is unreachable or goes permanently offline." serverfault.com/help/how-to-answer – naktinis
The answers's author has then removed my comment followed by a reply:
@naktins Insults are inappropriate here. Do not do it again.
If you look at his other responses under the same answer they all seem to be trying to ignore the style guideline in question and attacking anyone who suggests otherwise.
The only way I could now interpret the insult is "How dare you recite rules to me". But this is the same as "I'm lawyer/parliament member/president how dare you recite laws to me". Rules are equal to everyone and reciting them should not be censored, because someone feels insulted. To quote some more rules of SE, moderators should be patient and fair (especially when editing comments on their own answers).
My comment could have seemed unnecessary at most. But actually, I keep to the opinion that the answer should be extended as some other user suggested in comments (it's now locked, so I can't edit). From:
Are you referring to
You are probably referring to
nginx_dissite. They are 3rd party scripts – that's why you couldn't find them in
I think the moderator is being emotional and reactive instead of patient and fair.
Can I dispute this biased decision to remove my comment? Can something be done about biased and unfair moderators?
The answer in question: Nginx enable site command
Updated: Added my exact comment and a better explanation, why I think the moderator overreacted.
