He'd get a bad grade because turning Slaughterhouse 5 into a rant about how the Israelis are getting away with murdering Palestinians because of the "holocaust propaganda machine" deserves a bad grade.

Or argue that he deserved to be bombed. I'm not say you should believe it, but pick something you can justifiably argue. You get more kudos for being original and having a different viewpoint.

I strongly take issue with assumptions regarding moderator policy when such policy does not exist, especially when people then assume that "free shots" are then appropriate, and I overreacted.
