    It was your call all along. No one will lose sleep over this, but it was an interesting conversation. Thanks for that.

  2. Definitely an interesting convo leading up to this. I really appreciated the perspectives on all sides, which I must say, is a rare experience these days.

  3. I think this is the right call, particularly if they were kind enough to let you publish it and they weren’t on staff or otherwise compensated.

    There really was no wrong answer. Although…was I wrong for the first time since 1987? 😂

  5. Probably the best result in the end, but a very engaging larger conversation on ethics and best practices online. Yet again showing how this has become one of the most respectful and, dare I say, enlightened corners of the Web.

    All kidding aside…you have really got me thinking about this topic…it is very interesting, and if anything else, I do wish people would think more before they type. While I think we are pretty sane and grounded on this site…words have meaning and affect people…and given the reliance/over-reliance on the internet, people are very easily influenced…many days I feel that society is going down the tubes, that manners, decorum, decency and the like are gone forever…and a lot of it, I believe is due to the internet, and the inane/insane postings. So, I hope that whomever the individual is who posted whatever they posted, thinks twice before they hit that return button. I love the story, true or not, about Abraham Lincoln, when he was angry, would write and angry letter, and read it after, and throw it away. I believe that is the story, it is how I remember it, and I have had moments of anger like the next person, but, 100 percent of the time, typed up an email or letter, then hit delete. Words matter, even in today’s world.

  7. Even though I argued against it, you did the right thing. There are moments — milliseconds really — in which I, ahem, might, ahem, be, ahem, wrong. Ahem.

  8. Tempest in a teapot, sir.
