tedalin - you might not have asked something directly, but you also may have hinted on and/or implied something else indirectly which needed a clearer response and/or an elaboration from a more knowledgeable and authoritative user (this is where mods come into play, and explain everything to you... from the the mindset of people to the rules of this forum and how advice-giving works here).
When members act bratty or irrational, it is the moderators' jobs to align their behaviors in accordance to the rules, so at times it may come off as "policing" or "strict/inhumane" - but after all, their sole job on here is to maintain peace and order. Same analogy applies to real life, and the ones who violate rules in our daily waking world... they too do not like cops who police them and put them back in line with society's regulations.
tedalin, I have followed your latest thread and have noticed that you have an issue with understanding that other members here only want to help you, and when they see you speak of bad things - they tell you that you shouldn't be saying them. Simple. And in response to them looking out for you - your obligation/duty should be as simple as saying "I'm sorry, I will not say/do that again"... and move on.
