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.
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.
