That wasn't remotely snide. It was a flat-out warning to cease and desist. Thanks.
It comes across as snide and afterwards slightly threating, you can't be serious about threatening somebody for criticising the resistance to the metric system?
there is no resistance. There's a flat-out rejection, and reducing criticism to attacks on a nation's beliefs won't be tolerated.
I don't want to get into an argument again but that is untrue.
Completely concur. There is no hint whatsoever of the purported attacks. From a neutral's perspective (a non-American) that reaction appears completely disproportionate and unfounded.
There is always the "might is right" fallback of an administrator; but really, this is neither a civil not wholly rational way to debate, and is certainly reading-in things that are simply not there.
The out-of-line poster is clearly the one wielding the ban-hammer; on this thread's evidence, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it swung.
