Wade may have been in contact with people, unless he forwarded info through you guys.

Wade gave info to deck, who gave it to the school and police.

yea, some kids go banana when they get banned, and when explained further why they got banned via PM (they start the PM convo usually by send someting similiar to "OMFG Y DID U BAN ME I DIUN NUFFIN RONG!!!), they either realise that they're wrong, and start trolling beause of that, or they're don't - either way, in some cases they end up filling up your PM inbox with shitload of crap. i don't think i ever got anything else than the average pissed off teenager, and i never thought of any of the PM's to be like "tomorrow you're gonna die" type of messages, but "you're so fucking stupid for banning me i'm gonna fuckign kill you bla bla bla" is too a death-threat, even if it's not seriously meant.

Now that I've finally read through this entire thread, I can safely say a big well done to the guys that got directly involved with helping the matters, the Newgrounds protocol on how moderators and admins react to this sort of thing (sieg heil, and all that), and everyone else that posted in times of uncertainty.

Admittedly, the reading took this long because I was looking for my Miami Vice soundtrack CD. Yes, seriously. Hey, at least it looks like I've missed out on some bad quality parody threads. Yay! Today turned out well after all.

Oh yeah, and he was always a little odd, and not really a good poster. Opinions are opinions I suppose.

I just can't understand how being banned from this forum could possibly make someone mad to that degree. It's not a new idea of kids being pissed off at being banned but when a possible death threat, even when it's not serious, enters the mix it just says to me that these people are worked up the point where they're not thinking before they type.

Just to be safe though, you should sleep with one eye open and possibly have a crossbow with thermite arrows underneath your mattress. Oh and don't forget the explosive charges set up at the entrance of your place. You know...just in case. ;)

I bet this is fake, but even if it is real it's been reported by several people who already posted here so the ass of Newgrounds has been covered.

I seriously doubt this is real though. He probably posted this as a really tasteless joke.

Well, I can't understand what drives people to kill their own kids, but it happens.

That's a more extreme example, I suppose. In the case of BBS-butthurt... consider the fact that we have a lot of genuine angst bled out onto these forums... a lot kids also resent authority. Imagine you're one of these pissed of at life little wankers and you finally get onto NG after another hellish day at school, and you make some sort of topic that rubs a mod the wrong way and BAM the authoritative mod has just ruined your BBS fun.

You can imagine some people just going off. It's happened to most of us, I would assume. The active General mods, at least.

I definately agree. Back in the days, when I was banned a fair bit (or, a lot of times as any mod will see in the logs and such) there could have been times when I tutted at the screen or something, in very quiet frustration, which would've been largely the result of one of those posting-in-a-spam-thread bans where I didn't really know what defined a spam thread. That would be it though really.

Most of the time, I brought it upon myself though being an idiot, and just spamming or whatever. That's no fun, when it wasn't even humourous in my cases. Oh well, these are better days... I hope ;)

I did feel sorry (or something better, words have left me) for Rucklo specifically though the other day, when some guy posted a thread that Rucklo locked and gave a specific lock message on what to with it. The guy just goes ahead and acts like an arse in a new thread. I mean, to enjoy posting here, you have to be not banned, so when a mod is being nice to you, you should be taking it on board, not acting like you've got jerk rights. I'm just ranting because it annoyed me a little. Ah, I guess the mods put up with that shit alot anyway.

I've said it before: I wish bigbadron was still around. I remember his responses to "death threats" or any other sort of threat being quite funny.

I imagine that the police & school will do everything in their power to keep this out of the press's hands. Its a PR situation and there may be privacy laws in the UK for discipline etc. In certain places in the U.S. it is illegal for a school to discuss disciplinary proceedings. I know from personal experience. The standard response is that the situation is being dealt with.

The school doesn't want the focus of having a mentally deranged child on their hands.

The police don't want copy cats.

And there isn't much of a story here besides a foiled case. I think it would be better for everyone if just punishment were dolled out to sirtom, his ties were investigated and the whole matter was kept quiet. Also, rehabilitation and counseling for all involved because a kid like that doesn't get miraculously better over night, he just does something later.

Beh, treat him however you want. A word of caution: I, for one, am not going to tolerate a billion threads mocking him or people trolling him if he returns, simply because that falls under BBS rule violations. It's really not our responsibility to maintain his psyche... asking the internet "to be nice or he might snap" is rather futile.

If HE starts trying to brag / bring attention to it, I'll let people with his contact information know since it's something that they'd probably want to keep an eye on.

The ideal situation is that everyone mostly forgets about this after a week or so and if he returns he considers a terrible mistake and pretends it never happened. Unfortunately this is permanent troll food now.
