An answer I gave about which personal pronoun to use for god was locked by a mod. The reason was my introducing statement that god is a fictitious entity, so that the question must be understood as one of language usage (not one of god).
That statement elicited a few negative comments. I assume that the few downvotes also are based on hurt feelings. (The answer was fairly detailed and generally well received.)
The question was probably locked because I reverted an edit by the mod, not knowing he was one then; he hadn't left a comment. I reverted the edit because the introducing statement was not gratuitous, and I felt someone was infringing on my text, so to speak. (It's funny how one gets proud and possessive over these little things, I know).
I have two questions.
- Is this site so pious that a — contextually warranted — statement "god is a fictitious entity" is considered too offensive ?
- What's the process to unlock it? In the locked state no normal user (including me) can edit it or vote or comment on it.
