I do not know what you edited.
You wrote "to prevent flames". Flames from who and on what?
I think it is reasonable to deduce that the edited phrase is "SPH is nothing". If it were so, then I have to agree with NW75.
Words have meaning. Whether or not you are a "normal" user or "superuser" (frankly I do not know what this is all about! Appointment on the basis of number of posts?), by a wrong choice of words, you will elicit suitable responses.
"SPH is nothing" is a very strong and dogmatic statement and declaration with no room for compromise. You made such a derogatory judgement on SPH and then you did not think that NW75's retort was appropriate? NW75 took you too seriously? You mean your words do not have to be taken seriously? When then can your words be taken seriously?
I think CS admin will seriously have to rethink the type of people to confer "superuser status".
