That the person "seems" safe is completely besides the point that the information you provided is false, harmful information. This is about fundamentals, not anecdotes, and not hand-wavy "seems safe" nonsense. The message is clear: those lasers at those power levels are clearly unsafe in the conditions that you're touting as safe (direct hit to the eye, reflection off shiny surfaces, etc.).
I invite anyone and everyone to go read the posts and decide for themselves exactly what was said, and how problematic the information that was provided is.
