A question appeared on the site this afternoon which is explicitly off-topic for the site as per the scope. All that question would do is cause opinionated answers and comments filled to the brim with discussion (Which I know we want to avoid as best we can)
However, a user decided that he had some moral obligation to defend the OP to his dying breath (You can see all the comments alternatively you can view the chat which I tried to invite him into, he declined as you can see)
I'm a little disappointed with the user it seems that he used his opinion on the moderation on the site to make some snide remarks towards myself, whether he wanted to gain some extra points on his moral compass or just purposefully insult me because I am "ruining the site" I do not know.
My question is, is behaviour like this tolerated/acceptable? All I did was enforce the sites "rules" and I was attacked for it. Admittedly, I was wrong to respond back about him being on a high-horse that comment was unprofessional however his comments left me a little bitter.
As a note, I would like to formally apologise for the aforementioned final comment I made, it was not necessary. I won't delete it because it is relevant, I'd just like to apologise for it.
