Asking because I found a similar question on meta.stackexchange.com (Is there somewhere to complain about offensive moderator behaviour?)
I've been a StackExchange user for years, and contributed to a few different Exchanges
As many of you know, the platform has a reputation for some moderators being too "gatekeepy". Which I can appreciate, as somebody who uses stackexchange literally tens of times a day.
Never have I had a problem, but I'm honestly pretty confused with the behavior of an anonymous moderator here
I came to this Exchange to ask a question, and decided that I should also try to give back and answer a question.
The open-ended title from this question intrigued me, so I went in: Is there a word or short phrase used to describe being impressed with someone's accomplishment while also clearly expressing a lack of understanding?
After reading the OP's story, I had an answer in mind, so I tried my best to convey the merits of my answer. I just have a bachelors in a completely unrelated field, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to provide an answer.
It was pretty quickly downvoted twice, though the OP commented, saying that my answer was exactly what he was looking for. He accepted my answer, and I replied to his comment, telling him that I expected downvotes because I'm not an English expert.
Downvotes are cool, I must've not followed the rules exactly,
The problem I have is that somebody then came in and deleted all the comments on my answer...
I ask, why?
or AITA here?
