> doesn't this person have a right to not like deputies if he'she wishes? This person never expressed dislike in any particular person, just moderators in general ...

People have a right not to like deputies. In their case, I think it's even OK to post:
> > I don't like deputies.
But it's not OK to accuse them of being dishonest. Your freedom of speech is limited here. And accusing them in general instead of specifically doesn't make it OK and may even make it worse.
People also have a right not to like other posters, but I wouldn't consider it civil to post that. It's OK, however, to post:
> > I feel disappointed in certain authority figures I've come in contact with in the past.
> I must be really dumb. I do not understand.
