I think that would be an over reaction.  Perhaps chat to the chair about
this.

IMHO I've not seen anything that crosses the line, other than Harry's
disrespectful tone in a previous thread, as pointed out by Dave Longley and
others.  In that case I did make a complaint to the chair, and Im satisfied
it was handled appropriately.

Security is something that invokes strong feelings.  Let's try and calm
down a bit, not go over the top, and try and be respectful of other
people's points of view.
