    of an approach that seems to have worked - in the sense at least that he took the thing down, and didn't get defensive and recalcitrant, the most common response to criticism on this issue. So that is important!

    What you did that was so smart (I think) is to stick to questions, not lecturing. Loaded questions, as it happens, but perfectly civil and straightforward, not scolding, upset, sarcastic, or reproachful.  In this case, that worked well. I'll have to try it!
