Why was my answer to this meta question deleted by Moderator Alexander Gruber? I believe it has no proper reason to be deleted. Since it was deleted by a moderator, nobody except the moderators can vote to undelete it.
I deleted your answer in response to a flag asserting that it was made in bad faith, to draw attention to a year-old argument and stir up trouble. I agreed with that, so I voted to delete, anticipating that there would otherwise be a delete-undelete war that would be disruptive to the community. (Which, now that my vote has been lifted, there is.) This is precisely the reason that moderator delete votes are binding.
To those crying out that this was an "abuse of my power," I do not apologize for casting a third delete vote to resolve a flag that I agreed with. This has nothing to do with Makoto specifically. Many similar, heavily downvoted answers to old, controversial questions have been deleted in the past. As a matter of fact, Makoto, I have been a voice in your favor many times. I have no vendetta against you. But, you will not make me afraid to do my job. I have spent many, many hours of my life improving this forum, and I do not take kindly to attempts to disrupt it simply for the sake of doing so.
Lastly, let me briefly respond to André Nicolas. I will not resign. I think it's fine that Makoto posted this question, as the decision was perhaps in a grey area, and I have no problem with the answer being undeleted, as that appears to be what the community wants. But your suggestion, which you admit was aimed to wound me, is something I have taken personally. I am a kind person, and in my year of moderation, my contributions have made this community a happier, more peaceful place. I will not be depersonalized. Show some respect, sir.
