Read before you decide THIS question is off-topic
I don't expext to get much sympathy on this one but....
I posted my question on serverfault thinking it was for networking questions. Gets put on hold as off-topic, my mistake, no big deal, let's move on. (Also I didn't get notified of either hold or response to my subsequent flag for migrate. Not sure about flags but I know holds are supposed to show)
- Flag my question to be moved to site holding mod suggested it be moved to: denied with no explanation
- I politely ask for a suggestion as to where to move and the reply? "Frankly, this is a terrible question. I won't put it anywhere else."
You could imagine 4 hours for such a helpful response and I was a bit peeved. I had a specific question about a specific function of a uniquitous networking device and he was telling me, rather rudely, that it didn't belong anywhere on the ENTIRE stack network. Didn't offer a single word as to why it was so terrible. I illustrate, in kind, how that's not so helpful and question gets closed as "too many off-topic comments." There were two comments by me: one about the relevant site and the other about the complaint (which was the only one he deletes, doesn't like being questioned I guess)
Just so my post can have a specific question
- I've heard of power-tripping mods here and was wondering just how bad it is. I haven't had any other issues but I want to avoid it as much as possible.
- I probably know who it was (no names) because of how the question was closed, but is there a specific way to know who responded to a flag request? Again just to help avoid future situations.
- Funny enough person who closed put another question of mine on hold yesterday, but I agreed it was too broad and deleted it.
Relevance of THIS post: If you think discussing moderator behaviour is not a meta topic we can have a separate debate on that. If you think this belongs on meta.serverfault: this post wasn't about the specific question posted there - it was was about a moderator's behaviour and the context isn't specific to serverfault. Also I'm new there and can't post to meta.
