No, it's not necessary. But since none of these putative people actually exist (the flats aren't built yet), and given beetroot's history as someone who generally doesn't give offense, I wondered whether it was necessary to jump on him/her to such an extent, or whether it was easier to put it down to a very rare bad day and walk on by.
(I have never met beetroot and am never likely to. I have no personal interest in protecting him/her, other than that he/she appeare to be a reasonable and mild-mannered presence on here, which can't be said for everyone.)
...if you press it, they will come.
