I have also had posts removed as "off topic" when they were wholly on topic.
Regardless, you are correct. The whole "second line" thing is a meme that needs to die. It makes the user look like a teenager, going through silly motions to appease their overmasters at school.
But i used to put up one line posts when they made sense and still added to the conversation. It was warned by a mod. I asked the mod to explain, and was subsequently apologized to when the mod realized that the one liner DID add to the conversation.

Brevity is the soul of wit. I don't see the point in writing an entire essay, when one can convey the same thing in one line.
