Maybe the proper message should be that the rules don't matter? Is 
that the bigger picture? And Dave was supposed to know the entire 
situation before he posted the list. Get real, the kid unknowingly 
broke the rules. He has been instructed as to the rules and 
presumably will now obey them. If nothing had been said would he have 
learned anything? Even as a teenager (many a long moon ago) I would 
rather have learned from a mistake than to continue to look like a lid.
