In one of the threads being spoken about, all the moderator text deletions were accompanied by explanations, plus requests to quit bickering. This included moderator comments on posts I'd written. One moderator edit said "last chance".
In two of the threads being talked about at least one moderator mentioned PM exchanges with the offending parties. Highly unlikely people didn't know what was about to happen.
The OP claims "I was removed from the discussion" and yet the thread is still open, and about 3/4 or more of what they wrote is still there.
I had text removed from my posts in that thread. Am I also a victim?
