I didn't say anything about the post itself. I just said you would be well-advised not to use your real name and real likeness on this site. Even people who use an anonymous name and avatar have gotten into trouble with things they posted. I said that as advice: not being hostile, not NETY, NETY, NETY, not threatening, not to make you feel small.
You said I should have approached it as a teachable moment. That's exactly why I posted that advice. It was caution from having known individuals who found out that MBs aren't as anonymous as people think they are, even when you use a made-up screen name and avatar.
