I recently posted the following question on meta:
Has Stack Exchange ever permanently kicked out (by the longest possible suspension) a high rep troll? (now closed and deleted by a moderator)
Some users thought the question was a duplicate and I edited my post to explain that it is not.
Four answers were posted, one from Moderator (and staff) Tim Post.
I have yet to finish reading Tim's answer and just found that my post had been closed by Moderator Journeyman Geek as
This question's topic is only applicable to one specific site in the Stack Exchange Network.
I disagree and would like to explain this should apply to broader meta, I find that my post has been deleted by Moderator Journeyman Geek. I do not understand why the hurry of deleting my post.
Journeyman Geek left the following comment under my post:
The question seems more of a rant about a specific user than a general one.
I was only able to read it after my post was deleted.
While the context of my question "seems" to be ranting (who would not be angry/upset with witnessing a high rep troll for many years in a beloved site?), my questions were not:
Has Stack Exchange ever permanently kicked out a high rep troll before?
are there examples of high rep (>100K) users being suspended "permanently" (The word "permanently" can be understood as "the longest suspension".) in the sense above?
should the described user be suspended "permanently" in the sense above?
(Rant: what kind of "rant" does one see here?!)
Here are my questions:
What did I do so wrong that a moderator need to delete this post on meta?
Is the deletion the decision of the whole moderator team or personal opinion of Moderator Journeyman Geek? (The unilateral deletion is very confusing.)
- What should I do next, appropriately, if I strongly disagree with such deletion?
Since the first comment of the "relevant moderator" is not deleted yet upon request, I should state firmly that "whom you personally were in conflict over years and related to this did many quite problematic things" in the first comment under the post is not only an extremely misleading exaggeration but also a very offensive insult. I did not at all disclose in the deleted post who the user in discussion is and neither did I quote a single piece of linked question or answer of the mentioned user.
I will leave the judgement to the public and especially MathSE users.
