The post was locked for breaching rules 3 and rule 4.
There is always a need for good faith.
You should always elaborate on your opinions rather than just spilling the soykaf.
OP of that thread isn't above the rules.
You are also ignoring Rule 11 at your own peril.
11. Read the rules again. /* infinite iteration will fix later */
The thread was locked because it was a single link, with a two line comment.
And the two lines, one was an assumption that incorrectly assumed because the article syndicated to medium didn't mention pluggable transports that the author of the article had no clue about them.
The other line was a question that was a personal attack on security researchers that think about the bigger picture.
I don't know what you mean by safe space, but the rules make it pretty clear Rule 1
If you break the rules we will delete your post.
The locking of the thread with a message indication rule breaches is a courtesy, as is warning threads for rule breaches prior to deleting them.
