Oh, I think it will be useful for me to share a bit more about my 
self-censoring: after the "upskirt incident" I didn't care about flames, 
about people insulting me, trying to google bomb me or being listed on 
hate sites - from those I got traffic, page rand and a few AdSense 
dollars, what really did matter for me were the reactions of 3 people in 
the community I have respect for (no names given, hope they recognize 
- someone *friendly* adviced me in a *private* message to not publish 
again such type of content;
- someone else, also in a private message, told me to not put at hearth 
all the flames;
- someone from whom I didn't expected to, came to some degree publicly 
in my defense, albeit on some technicality.

So my take is: don't get aggressive on this new guy, or anyone else, be 
friendly, we want to grow him in a full contributor, not alienate him.
