I really don't want to start another heated debate here, but I thought it would be prudent to put out a statement on the whole 'Snowflakes' thing.

This will be the last I say on the matter; I will try to do better in future.



@kev this is how I read it originally, but then reading about people's problems with the term 'snowflake' (for example @brandon ), I had some concerns after all. I thank you for clarifying, this is a satisfactory response for me.

I would also like to say I agree about the hyper-vigilance and oversensitivity. Reactions like @maloki 's call for a crusade seem very harmful to me, when clearly there was no ill intent and @kev merely did not understand the "snowflake" term as others do.

@Matter there's nothing much to understand as there is a dictionary meaning one can read clearly. All other meanings can't be proven if they are not in the dictionary. If people can't use a dictionary their understanding is flawed. And we get flamewars!!!
