formerly titled: "Yo dawg, I herd you like subtopic threads to avoid derails..." to keep a PAX(?) thread clear of a derail, a catch-all for derails not big enough to support their own thread might not be a bad idea.
I think we need to draw a distinction between antagonizing him and trying to further educate him. His last "apology" still had plenty of things that were not right, and he still needs to learn how to be more sensitive to the trans* community. You're speaking as though he's learned his lesson, LarryC, when, in all likelihood, the only lesson he may have learned is to keep his hands out of that particular hornet's nest.LarryC wrote:
I'm advocating not calling an asshat an asshat when that provably leads to them being even more of an asshat, which then excuses lots more asshats to be even more asshats.
