I interpret the concern to be that Harry's actions are what would be endangering the contest, not the discussion of it on this forum.
I interpret Harry's actions, by sending his appeal to the CEO, the General Council, and the Chief Diversity Officer of Brown-Forman, that he intended to not give the organizer an opportunity to address his concerns. Why would you send it to the CEO if you were going to give the organizer an opportunity to address your concerns? Why would you send it to the General Council unless you felt there was a legal remedy to pursue? Why, in heaven's name, would you send it to the Chief Diversity Officer, unless you were implying that there was a "diversity" issue?
You can stick up for him all you want, but his self-centered and short-sighted actions, by putting himself above the rules and ahead of those who follow them, with no concern for the outcome for many, many others, is extremely distasteful to me....and that, sir, is my opinion.
