At least its not anti-participatory, like deleting/disappearing content
Now you're confusing participation with moderation & administration. What the moderators do is kind of "meta" relative to the main purpose of the site.
How would an anonymous poster know about ...
The same way we all learned these things. And the fact that this anonymous poster chose to "participate" in a way that is not generally acceptable to the community is prima facie evidence that they haven't bothered to learn how this community works. Which is why I feel less bad about supporting the reap call than I might.
Destroying content ...
We didn't destroy content. The content was off site, and it's still there. Presumably.
placing higher level of onus on actual content contributors rather than content destroyers
Exactly. The participants bear the entire onus for content contribution (with a few fringe exceptions, notably the Categorized Questions and Answers section).
The moderators, whom you call "content destroyers", have a different responsibility: to keep this place clean of crap, such as unexplained links to unexplained offsite content.
I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
