Then consider this a bug report. I initially posted without logging in. The site told me my comment was being held in a moderation queue, and the comment did not appear on the thread. That's why I logged in to post the comment, and added the bit to which you are replying.

For the record I'm also talking about a pattern of abuses of editorial privelges that I've seen happening on the site for a while. A couple of examples off the top of my head; Tim Wikiriwhi's articles...

Because you've made an attempt to respond intelligently to my comment, I'm going to apologise for calling you an "Anonymous Coward".
