I’ve seen a couple of Friends post this around so I’m not surprised it’s getting viral again.
Personally I’m disappointed that the students are coming back even after what happened

I think it is pretty clear that the chat was not infact a groupchat of people looking to rape a whole apartment full of people but probably them making a joke that should not have left the chat, most people including me have said things that if presented without any context would probably be enough to expell us or get them serioiusly in trouble. Do I think they should have said it, meh it certainly doesnt look good buy I am sure there was context, do I think they should have been expelled, hard one to say the bad publicity would be uh... bad but I would have personally warned them/everyone that what you say online is recorded.
Reform is far better medicine than total exclusion. If they've shown proper remorse for their actions then they ought to be given a second chance. From the sounds of it they'll be closely monitored upon their return, and I imagine if they do anything similar again there won't be any third chance for them, that'll be the end of their educational career.
Common sense prevails. "I don't feel comfortable having them back in my seminar" -- now you're separated by a year or two, that won't be happening.
if my msn chats from when i was 12 were made public, people would call for me to be hanged, drawn and quartered
If someone made bomb threats or joked about a replica style attack of Manchester on a private chat, from what has been suggested on this thread I suppose that would be okay.
A chat like that can only be done anonymously if one wants to avoid oppression.

At least one of the girls who was mentioned very graphically in the messages is on a year abroad, so when she returns to Warwick in September 2019 will be in third year just like the returning boys.
They were suspended in early 2018 and given finally their punishments in May 2018, so one imagines they did not sit year 2 exams. They're to return in Sept 2019, presumably in year 2.
NB this reduction in punishment affects 2 of the students involved, of the 11. Not all of them made references to sexual violence in their jokes; at least one named made racist references only.
