First of all the topic I was banned for was related to the tragedy in Mena, a topic significant enough on its own to invoke the sympathy and interest of any muslim.
The cause of the tragedy is still debated in the mainstream media, but the already known facts surrounding the incident and the kind of response and performance by Saudis towards this catastrophe provide strong ground for suspicion and I am personally almost convinced, as this Western journalist extensively argues, that this was a Mossad operation to kidnap Iranian high-ranking officials.
Last night, I was deeply moved by the implications of this conspiracy, and felt sharing this with some muslim friends here. Of course, one may not agree with my opinion, but that could be up for a discussion. But a moderator proceeding to ban a user for simply posting an opinion and two links in regards with an incident concerning Islam and muslims, is to me just the old story of a reckless moderator who still seems to think that iron-fist measures contribute anything to creating a positive atmosphere in this site!
I know what his typical counter-arguments might be, but again those are no justification for a moderator who thinks he can compensate lack of sympathy and good-faith with the cold technicalities. My posts were removed and I was banned for no trouble or unease caused except apparently for the personal sensitivity of a moderator.
