THIS QUESTION was asked about the fatherhood relationship of God with His son. It was asked openly, inviting answers from anyone. I spent time on my answer, carefully referencing and documenting each point I made, with the textual references all shown below.
A short while later, after a few commenters had expressed their doctrinal disagreements, the moderator deleted the entire post with this comment:
From the tags this question is clearly asking for the Trinitarian view, which this is not. Please refrain from posting invalid answers. – curiousdannii ♦ Jul 16 at 14:00
However, that was false. None of the tags specified "Trinitarian." Perhaps realizing that this was so, and attempting to cover his/her tracks, the moderator then edited the question so as to support this claim. The timestamps on the comment versus the appearance of the added "According to Trinitarians:" heading in the OP substantiate this.
In other words, the moderator deliberately misrepresented the case in order to have a reason to delete the post. The post itself had nothing in it that would run afoul of the rules here: it was civil, on point, and carefully written.
Here is that post, in its entirety (between double horizontal rules below):
According to the Bible, God is invisible1 and no one has ever seen Him2. In fact, Jesus goes so far as to say we have never even heard His voice3.
In order for His creatures to be able to relate to Him, God manifests Himself to them via what in the Old Testament is referred to as "the angel of Yahweh"4 (translated as "the angel of the LORD" in KJV), and in the New Testament is called the Son5, or Christ6. In the New Testament, Christ is further identified as being a "son" begotten of the Father7. This "begetting" was not in all respects after the human order, via both father and mother in what we call "procreation." It was, however, the creation of a separate being from God the Father, one who was placed on an equality with Him8 and given authority with Him9. It is this Son of God who serves as the mediator for all creation between us and God10, and he is the spokesperson and representative for God.
God Himself, however, has never been seen, nor heard by anyone2, 3. As we know that Jesus was both seen and heard, according to the Bible11, this "Son of God" cannot himself have been God--which makes perfect sense because a son is never the same person, being, nor identity as his father. The Father is "the only true God12," and the Son is the one God sent to represent Himself to us13.
Jesus said his Father was both his Father and his God, just as He is to be our Father and our God14.

Now, here are screenshots which document the inappropriate deletion, and the subsequent attempt to cover the moderator's tracks. Take note of the timestamps shown as the mouse hovered over those events.
Notice the sequence of the timestamps in each of those, and how the OP itself was edited after the fact in order to give a reason for the inappropriate deletion.
I afterward attempted to report the post as having been deleted without sufficient cause, but no response was given. That was before I had noticed that the OP had been edited to add the "According to Trinitarians:" line. I tried to report this new information as well, and the system would not allow it as there was supposedly one report pending already.
How should issues like this be handled, presuming that the same moderator against whom the complaint comes is the one handling the reports? Is there any mechanism in place on the SE network for addressing complaints with a third-party moderator? I was reticent to even post here, not wishing to be simply banned for complaining about inappropriate moderation, and I would far rather have had some recourse by which to address this complaint. However, as this is not the first time this particular moderator has removed my posts, and typically for a doctrinal disagreement, I feel I need to seek for some solution.
Thank you for any help you may offer towards a worthy resolution.
