@invis i don't have resources but i do have validation: giving someone who's willing to learn and grow the space and ability to do so always works out better than cutting them out, no matter how many people disagree.
communities that foster growth like that are worth their weight in diamonds; those memories stick with someone well after they move on – if they ever do.
Specifically, the situation is that we kicked someone from our chatroom due to them making people uncomfortable, but they're willing to learn, so me and another mod wants to work with them. And it's a tough situation, because it's a lot we have to teach and overcome, and not everyone on the server agrees with our decision, and it would be so easy just to give up. But I don't want to?

"missing social cues" doesn't always mean "didn't get the lewd joke or whatever". sometimes it's not realizing you were hurting your friends feelings. sometimes it's talking over someone because you're really excited. sometimes it's not realizing the topic at hand is making someone really uncomfortable
The worst thing about 21st century internet culture? The fact that two generations of people have been conditioned to refer to everything they do as "content".
Are you a writer? An artist? A photographer? A film maker? A blogger? It no longer matters. You're a content creator and something something monetisation.
