Is getting a warning for a PM to a moderator for asking them a question reasonable? I've been having an ongoing discussion via PM with a Moderator. The Moderator never asked me to cease PMing them, and indeed responded to each of my PMs. This is an edited version of the last PM (you aren't supposed to reveal what is said in PMs so I've narrowed this down so the subject and the moderator aren't obvious, but I've included my full reply, the one that got me a warning, so you can see that it wasn't inapproriate) To which I received this: Really? You can get a warning for mearly discussing something with a Moderator via a PM now? Is this a valid interpretation of the Posting rules?
