No Rene, it's always appropriate for anyone in the community to feel 
comfortable calling out inappropriate behaviour, and that is all that 
was done.

If my reply serves only to make someone else in the community feel 
comfortable doing so in the future, it has served its purpose.

If anyone feels uncomfortable with honest feedback about their 
behaviour, I would submit they spent a little more time considering the 
approach they take with the community prior to committing to 
interactions in future.

If you'd like to discuss further, I'm always available for people who 
are motivated, interested, and would like to productively engage others.
