Yes, Tantek was threatening you.  That's typical of life on  He is an aggressive and controlling guy, and the
main other characters, the people who call themselves "moderators",
follow his lead.  You have to accept being pushed around by these guys
if you want to work on microformats.

The conclusion I personally draw is that this intellectual work
probably contains many flaws because it is conducted in an environment
that prevents authentic discourse.
