The above comment doesn't seem to be useful, and it seems to be a defensive remark (indeed, something the commenter admits to in another comment that they made, which was deleted after I raised a flag on it.
@jimsug O, I will for thy bravery hail praise upon thee,/ for an animadversion thou lodgeth 'gainst StoneyB./ — user8153
I'm not sure who handled the moderator attention flags on this, and I'm sure you had a good reason for it, but can I ask why the flag was declined?
As far as I can tell, this user seems to have taken it rather personally that their question was closed, first prompting them to attack me personally (apparently by likening me to members of the US Congress - apparently that's an insult, and I don't follow US politics closely enough to know precisely why), then they've decided to do the same, but in EME.
I try to shy away from these kinds of petty squabbles - I think I've succeeded in responding constructively, most of the time. But to let this comment stand is to implicitly condone such comments.
