What should I do when threatened by a moderator? Where should it be reported?

    An actual diamond moderator or just a community member that's perhaps closed your question? What do you mean by "threatened"? Also, your third question has nothing to do with your first two.

  • a diamond mod, and I needed enough text before the filter would accept. I actually had the full question in the title. feel free to remove the third one if you can.

    This is almost certainly a simple misunderstanding. Moderators are highly trusted members of the site, and if you feel "threatened" (by any user) it can surely be resolved via a civil discussion on meta or chat.

  • @Doorknob I would like to think you are right, but I think you are wrong.

    @Doorknob is correct, moderators are reasonable people and as mentioned, trusted and under more scrutiny that ordinary members. A civil and robust discussion can resolve any issues and misconceptions.

    @hildred: It would nice to have some context. Can you share it? Mar 10, 2015 at 9:45

    It doesn't really seem necessary @PatrickHofman. Nothing the community can or should do about this. Just mail the team and they will handle it.

    @Bart: Agreed. But my guess is OP just misunderstood a mod. We could clarify for him. Mar 10, 2015 at 9:50
