We strongly advise communities to involve moderators through flags, or contact us directly when a dispute with another user arises. We're all here to have fun and learn from one another, but sometimes disputes do happen - it happens any time you put humans together on a cooperative effort, no matter how nice they might be individually.
This is a very good example of an instance where the moderators should have been involved (click 'flag' then click 'other' and explain what's going on), and if unsatisfied there, contacting us directly. Once a dispute like this gets to meta, groupthink ensues, and it tends to deteriorate from there quite rapidly.
Folks, please - avoid pointing out specific users in cases like this. Instead, merely describe the behavior and circumstances - if the moderators want a specific example there are means to provide that privately.
Otherwise, the feelings of awesome people get hurt, and that's not why we're here.
I've answered the technical aspects of your question in my answer here, and I've done quite a bit of clean up. There's no reason to preserve a point in history where folks just .. weren't quite at their best.
Let's concede that an unfortunate series of mistakes were made, but all of us really love this site and what we're building here, and nothing warrants tearing down that amount of awesomeness. Mistakes are that, just mistakes - something we learn from so this doesn't repeat itself.
