Is there a way to report a moderator who appears to abuse his/her powers? How can a user make sure a moderator is not abusing his/her powers or understand why the aforementioned moderator is not doing so?
These are the facts: This recent post has had several replies
The top reply had a comment mentioning that the post may be improved by not suggesting to write to the person because written comments may have a stronger impact and be more embarrassing. It was also suggesting that by doing it "not face-to-face" may have the opposite effect of implying that there is a bigger problem. This comment was up-voted by about 20 people (which, in this context, is a high number). It appears that a new comment was added that replies to it, but the comment it replies to was deleted.
That was a comment relating to the question and it was suggesting (possibly wrongly, of course, it is a matter of opinion) a way to improve it.
In addition, the user who wrote the answer and who wrote the comment answering the previous "suggestion for an improvement" writes a comment that appears to be upset, annoyed at the criticism, and even a little polemical (at least it appears so, in my opinion).
The deleted comment is similar to another comment that says: This has the disadvantage of involving yet another party, though. Depending on the person, mightn't that make it even more embarrassing? However, that comment was made on a different answer, and it was not removed, though it was essentially the same (it pointed to a problem with the approach in the answer, one can disagree with it, but it has its merits).
I have seen other comments on answers by the same user removed, which is why I am asking this question.
I hope this is clear, please ask for clarification if it is not. Thank you!
