We are in essence being asked to pass judgment on an individual based on 
a pattern of behavior, and that is exactly what Lloyd's message 
demonstrates.  So perhaps we should draw the line a bit finer:

  * Did Dan's messages cross the line?
  * Do they continue to cross the line?

And that's it.  And we don't need to be part of it.  Again, this is a 
professional organization, not the Roman Senate.
