  •  He deserved punishment (3+ / 0-)

    Punishment that acts as a strong deterrent to send a message to him and anyone else to not out people. Banning certainly accomplishes that.

    I've been outed before in other forums, to my great detriment in personal life. I don't support what Edger did. But I certainly don't have to join in some sort of sweeping, extreme condemnation of Edger AS A PERSON, as if he is permanently deemed so flawed as a human being that he has become untouchable. His act I condemn. Him, I don't. He isn't a criminal.

    I'm not Christian, but there are a few sayings attributed to Jesus Cristo that I truly love, and live by:

    One is this: He who is without sin, throw the first stone.

    You must be impeccable in your history, because you're throwing boulders.
