The author is talking about his problem. It is nothing about whether he has done something wrong knowingly or unknowingly. If anyone has some problem and do not understand, he should get the reply properly and without taunting.
We know that editors are having the power to edit or delete the post but that does not mean that one should deprived of his query. Members, should think from a member point of view before that support anyone.
"An accusatory tone, challenging questions all would invite further editing by the forum editors."
Its ok to blame a member for their tone, what about editors tone? No one talk about it because all they want to show their "goodwill" and their honest image.
Here in this thread the way editor has replied to the author, is the tone is ok? Is not looking it taunting? I have said this and my post was deleted. Why so? If people are concern about members tone, can't it apply for editors too?
