Reply privately or in channel for all to see?
Privately is definitely best, as long as there is time for the CoC
offender to see it and think. However, that's also only ever reactive,
to a single individual at a time.
On the forums, I would use a PM for such messages unless I needed to
calm a thread, when I would make a general post, pointing out the poor
conduct but not naming an individual. On IRC I would post in channel as
you can never be sure a user reads a /query.
Are you aiming to address tantrums, long term poor conduct, or both?
The first needs a short sharp shock - delivered at the time of the
incident or it loses its effectiveness, the latter can respond to a
slower more drawn out process.
