Woah, 15 pages in 9 hours? Time flies by when you're saving people from a potential killer.

I DECLARE TODAY 'NEWGROUNDS SUPER HEROES DAY'!

Let's give Mr. Tankman a cape today.

You can bet that if this does make it to press, the headline won't be 'Internet Saves School From Savagery!'

There are so many jokes to be made! Norfolk, for one. Let's be honest, it's all very exciting. I for one hadn't posted properly in days, yet I'm probably going to end up shooting my mouth off so much that I'll get hit with the pesky post limit. It's good for something to be happening.

As Zerok has already said, we're going to be affected by hindsight looking for so-called "clues" in sirtom93's past posts. Sure, evidence of him hating his school colleagues will be a factor in his decision to make his "plan", his actual threat that started this thread says that. However, it can't have been the single one decision. I mean, I hated a large majority of my school colleagues, but I never threatened to burn the school down or anything. The most I ever did was a quick, angry insult. Now I'm doing A Levels at college, and the only things there that stress me out are work-related (or me being bad at work-related). I could delve into it psychologically and bring up that I often blame myself for my own problems, but we're going off-topic and boring the officers. Yo, Zerok: I need you over here on a psychology issue!

Absolutely. I mean, look at Aileen Wuornos. I believe her last words on film were practically a "fuck you" to the media who had only aimed to make money off her case. Okay, sirtom93 isn't exactly a serial killer prostitute, but the principle is the same I think.

Wow. I just read 16 pages and I must say I am deeply saddened by the loss of another member of our community. Although, I had never spoken to him, I had always thought of him as a pretty smart guy. But this just goes to show that good people can do bad things. I can honestly understand why he would do such a thing. Life is painful, unfair, and cruel. People make life harder than it already is too. Poor guy... I hope he doesn't get hurt...

And If a bunch of worry wart "Holy shit this happened three times in the lat 10 years, it could happen again, even though we have no proof whatsoever" arse holes would've taken it as what it is - fake, just like everything else on NG - this would never have gotten more than 3 pages.

Will all these bonus points be integrated with the NG medal system, or some kind of other system? It would really be a waste if we couldn't record, and compare these points.

And, will they do anything other than look pretty and accumulate?

Are you seriously of the opinion that you should gamble with potential victim's lives like that? Maybe you don't have anyone close to you such that you'd be devastated if anything injurious ever happened to them... but if something happened to one of my loved ones, and I found that the perpetrator had let a large group of people know what he was planning on doing and no one took it seriously... Jesus.

Yeah. I'd say a one day ban would be appropriate. It'll give them the time to actually read through it.
