I'll reply to you both jointly to minimize the length of this 
thread which I too find unpleasant.

Whether you like it or not this list has a CoC governing it.
Discussions about appropriate posts ARE on-topic.
If you want a list where anyone can say any vile racist thing
they want, there are plenty of them on the internet, you dont
belong here.
I have nothing personal against Steven.  He called someone out
for being bigoted, then repeated the exact same offense himself.
If you want to shorten this thread then dont post inflammatory
remarks that will perpetuate it.
Please trim your replies and dont top post.
