Endorsing Islamic moral inversion

Seeking to solve a software issue, I discovered an interesting comment here:
Thanks a lot for this information, k? I used this to edit a recording of the Quran; so you probably earned yourself some good deeds
In response I posted a few examples of what Allah and his prophet from hell call "good."

The owner of the 'blog removed my comments. Curiously, he has not removed the misrepresentation of Islam. Is that because he has been deceived by the common lie that "Islam means 'peace,'" or does he actually promote it?

In either case, how can one defend (actively or passively) open-ended, universal commands to enslave or slaughter all who refuse conversion to Islam?
"Say to the Unbelievers . . . if they persist [in unbelief], the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them). And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone (in the whole of the world)" (Qur'an 8:38; ayah 39 from Noble Qur'an).
In the highly-likely event the owner removes my latest comment and desires no further discussion, this will be my last there:
The deleted comments were not 'about' the religion of one of the commenters, they were quotes from that religion's authoritative texts.

You allow his post asserting that you 'earned yourself some good deeds' by aiding his [editing] of Qur'an; isn't it only natural to find out what Qur'an calls 'good deeds'?

And doesn't tacitly endorsing the commenter's assertion by allowing it to stand only harm your non-Muslim readers?

Does one allow an infection to go untreated, especially when that disease maims and kills?

I respect your wanting to control the tone of your 'blog. I hope you will consider aiding Allah's War Against Humanity no longer.
