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 yes, it seems the dictionary says "snowflake" is an insulting word. dictionary.cambridge.org/dicti I used to play a game where I try to observe my language and not to use incorrect words that muddle the true meaning of my intent. Everyone has this problem of using wrong words to communicate their intent.
@kev I do understand your post and I would agree that people are more sensitive to social media posts than back in IRC days 10, 15 years ago.
