I can see Dannyngan's point even if I might not agree with 100% of what he had to say. As a moderator he has to balance his duties. The fact that the last thread turned political was purely by accident and although nothing faulse was said, maybe a website about Maya isn't the right place.
With that aside I can see how you think you might have had it tough. It wasn't an attack on you but more on the direction that the thread was going.
That's basically how I interpreted his actions, hope I got it right.
