Given the transient nature of the chatterbox, this problem should have been dealt with in the chatterbox itself.
That would have solved the problem and got rid of the offense. (After a few minutes)
Instead, with your intervention, the offense is in this page forever (or until someone decrees to remove it).
Now, according to your own request, what should we do to you? You've done the same as the offenders you are indicating, with the aggravation that your offense is permanent, while theirs is long gone.
I am not saying that such behaviour should not go unsanctioned (although I have no way of telling if there was any misbehaviour there), but that you are making a bad situation worse.
It's like writing in a newspaper "passing by the school, I heard two students using the F word". Before you wrote it, it was a limited problem, and the headmaster could have solved it. After you wrote it, it becomes a planetary issue, which is now known to anyone, even the ones who were not connected at that time, even the ones who usually don't pay attention to the chatterbox, and the ones (the majority, I think) who did not know that such words were offensive.
Why making such a big fuss? Let the CB deal with CB issues.
