Well - hold on though.  Of course we should call people out on being
personally offensive - but if we're going to do that, we should do it
at the time of the email - directly to that person - it's only fair.
And - I think we have to be careful also to defend our ability to be
direct and honest when then are problems that need to be addressed.
Any community needs that in order to grow, I believe.

See you,

Matthew
