I recently engaged in a lengthy attempt to address a noisy, misdirecting joke comment by a user. After realizing that chat rooms require 100 rep (I was thinking it was 200 rep, for some reason), I moved the conversation to chat, at which point the stonewalling continued, with continuous straw man and ad hominem fallacies thrown at me.
(I flagged one of the later comments under the question for moderator intervention to clean up the entire comment thread, which has since been taken care of)
It's a hallowed (though oft-ignored, it seems) rule on the Stack Exchange network to Be Nice; insinuating that someone has no value on the site because they don't have many questions/answers, or that they have no place criticizing your actions because they have lower rep or fewer questions/answers, is rude and offensive, I think (not to mention wrong). As such, the less than friendly language of the user has me wondering whether such behavior or reasoning of this magnitude is now justified.
