threat /THret/ noun: a statement of an intention to inflict pain,
injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for
something done or not done.
Exactly. If making people stick to the rules we've been following for ages
is considered 'pain, damage, or hostile action', and reaffirming the rules
is considered 'retribution' in case they aren't clear, then yes, it was a
threat. But on this planet, it wasn't.
