Yes, if it's describing him, then it's a personal remark. But sometimes
personal remarks are warranted.
TomMoore asked a question about content. TK made a pointless and demeaning
reply. TomMoore described TK's actions.
If I saw two children abusing each other, I would either punish both (if
both were in the wrong) or determine who started it and punish that one (if
the other was merely responding). To punish one and not the other when both
are in the wrong is simply unfair. If it's the "less troublesome", then you
are in effect rewarding the more troublesome.
And when various people have run-ins with TK and it's always the other
person than TK that receives the punishment, it's blatant favouritism.
You have still not justified the length of TomMoore's block despite asking a
couple of times, so I'm going to unblock him.
