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.

And the tabloids thought it would be a dull day, what with everyone getting drunk.

Seriously though, this isn't media fodder, in my opinion. It's pretty much been discussed above. How I turned your comment on the shirt into something on the media, well, that's me I guess. You reminded me of it though ;)

Jesus.

Knowing how few people in my school - as an example - have ever heard of any NG that isn't Nation Geographic, I doubt to the umpteenth power that this was made as a threat to anyone. The closest Norfolk to half the users here is in Virginia. I would be pissed if this happened, but how many emo kids do you think say "I'm going to kill someone today"? I would guess somewhere in the tens of millions. Should we go around every depressed teenager just because (s)he thought about it? Hey, cops, some of these kids think about doing what he posted, let's go arrest all of them for conspiring for murder. Posting something like this on that website would get a "Ignore the attention whore" type response.

If you posted something like that on a kid-friendly website you would get your topic deleted and nothing would be thought or done of it.

Yet, if you post it on a website where some of the people are under ten, some of the people are emo, and some of them are responsible adults, you get arrested. Double standards FTL.

If you read the first page, it would be pretty damn obvious exactly what has happened.

Sirtom creates this thread
Rig and myself phone the police
Users post an amazing amount of information on Sirtom
Rig keeps in contact with police, I keep in contact with Sirtom's school and Wade
The school phones me and says the matter has been dealt with and thanks NG
The police contact Rig and say Sirtom is in custody.

TL;DR Sirtom is now in police custody because he threatened to burn down his school. Rig and I (and my top secret informer) are Internet Superheroes.
