If the other person concerned or someone else complained about my comment in PM, thats fine and I accept your criticism and admonishment of my post. If not, IMHO it was a case of heavy handed needless moderation and censorship. Closing the thread was also IMHO not necessary but as a member of the Admin Team it is of course your decision and perogative to do so.

I can confirm that no complaint was received but in my judgement the post was unacceptable. Of course, I could have simply deleted your post and let the thread continue, but also in my judgement the thread was dragging out a situation that had already been resolved and was drifting off topic. You may not like my judgement but as you say, it is my prerogative.
