In other words, you didn't consider another equally likely, very possibly a more likely possibility, that I simply didn't report that post.

By failing to consider all the possible causes for your not receiving a point, you incorrectly assumed that the, "Mods were calling BS to my reporting"

If the post was never reported, and I certainly didn't report it, then the Mods never even got involved.

See? False premise on your part, therefore false conclusion.
Professor,

Of course there's a possibility of you not reporting it. But given your past history, it was extremely unlikely of you not to report something that you publicly said was a personal attack. And I said I was assuming the mods were calling BS. If you didn't report it, then I congratulate you for finally developing a few more centimeters of skin.
