First, the question you should be asking is "Is there a consensus among the community", not moderators, as it is the community here who runs this site. Diamond moderators are here to handle exceptional circumstances.

The Community Account is Automated Community♦ is a system account, not a person. Issues with how that account functions should probably be brought up on Stack Exchange Meta instead of here. Your Post I'm not a moderator or an op, so I can't tell you exactly how your question was scheduled for deletion, but I can shed some light on why it was closed. It ...

Why does our policy on pm-tools appear inconsistent? We're currently revising our site scope, making some changes, and experimenting with new policies and guidelines as a community.
