Resolved via discussion. Thanks for the feedback!
Update: PM included below for completeness.
Just wanted to clear the air a bit. Please understand that you are not being targeted in any of the associated threads. Moderators are charged to do just that, and when a post is off-topic (not matter how poignant) it must be addressed. Believe it or not, I respect a great deal of what you and others have said about the difficulties in the run-up to 8th edition (just check my sig!)
In either case, if you feel you have been treated unfairly, by all means please contact an Admin to review my actions.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter,
