I thought, poorly expressed as they were, that he had some points. At
several points in the discussion I felt strongly enough to reply, but
hadn't fully caught up with the discussion, so I held off.
And, if I had been trying to coach, I'd have been emailing several people
involved in various sides in the discussion.
As I said, it was your call. There is a fine line that young people walk
where we want to be tolerant because they are young and don't understand
what they are doing, and that place where we've had enough, and decide
to punish them as adults because they should know better. Hex was
pushing the line.
I still think various parties had points that were not well heard,
but agree it is time to move onto something else for a while. (I
am sure the points will be raised again from time to time, hopefully
by cooler heads.)
