Takeaway No. 2 is: Don't take seriously what is not said seriously.

Here are two of the main causes of suicide, particularly youth suicide:

1. Being forced by others to behave how one does not want to behave.

2. Being ostracised for using words that others snobbishly decide to treat as offensive.

So, if you want to set yourself up to look like someone who cares about preventing suicide, and who is therefore a Very Good Chap, you should avoid telling people (including Bill) how they Must and Must Not behave, and also telling people (including Bill) how they Must and Must Not speak.
