He seemed elitist and insulting furthermore throwing a tantrum and harming the community by removing resources and valuable information is enough to make any administrator or moderator furious. These people donate time and other resources for the sake of a larger community only to have a power user try to dismantle it. Power users do not get special treatment in cases where they damage a community. Sad to say but often power users are the most problematic to moderator, speaking from experience Jouer à des jeux stupides gagner des prix stupides .

It is difficult to see how this does not violate one of the fundamental rules of this forum:
Flaming, personal attacks and inflammatory statements: Some people enjoy flaming, personal attacks, starting trouble, and fighting online. But many people dislike these things greatly, and they will leave the forum rather than put up with that kind of atmosphere. So given the choice, we choose to exclude the flamers, trolls and chronic jerks.
I've reported the post.
An inauspicious and odd start to your posting engagement with this site, unless this is a sock puppet account for an established poster who did not wish to put their name to these comments.
It is equally difficult, at least for me, to see how this post (attacking in a personal, insulting manner someone who literally is unable to defend himself on the forum) does not violate principles of basic decency.
