Where were you to sic "Advise him to tread lightly" when all this was happening?

Trading private email with him.

Also, sometimes the business of running a business and managing employees and contractors means that I can't donate as much of my time to helping adults make wise choices as you might prefer that I donate.

In many cases they were thanked with some of the most atrocious, abusive replies.

You will never see or hear me excuse that.

    And my answer to that is if you do not have enough time to fully commit to something then do not get involved with it in the first place!

      Are you suggesting that there should be some sort of minimum participation amount agreement required to continue using PerlMonks?

      "Novel" is one word to describe that idea.

        I was specifically referring to your involvement with a certain new member exhibiting, to be charitable, very poor behavior. You implicitly conceded that your business kept you from being fully engaged. And my response was referring specifically to that type of situation. Which, btw, should have been obvious given what I was quoting and the subject matter of this thread.

        In the end, you were, more than anything, an enabler for said poor behavior. And certain specific Monks and The Monastery in general suffered for it. This thread is proof of that.
