Impartial view here:
I don't know your history with the other poster, and I am not going to even comment on the topic debated. Hopefully you see me as someone fairly reasonable not looking to stir shit up.
This back and forth with threats to ban based on a comment that was fairly innocuous: not a good look for a moderator.
I appreciate the work you do here to keep the board up and running, it is probably not worth the compensation. We all get tipped over the edge now and again, no judgement.
I don't think he was even remotely serious about the ban comment but merely pointing out a point.
