All in good time. I'm glad he was apprehended and that the possible crisis was averted.

This must have been fairly big if three people in one school had similar ideas and intentions. Did he have the petrol on him when he went to school or did he leave it at home? Either way this was a pretty big claim and could have led to disaster.

To clarify something; there were never any plans for a group of people to do some sort of mass school thing, it's nothing like that.

What exactly is it about the newground lifestyle that causes people to go over the edge? Or are we to assume that this is typical teenage behavior?

Sometimes i wonder if i put myself at unnecessary risk going to different parts of the world meeting random people from the internet... maybe we can have metal detectors and fingerprinting at the next london thing

in all seriousness, with all the bullshit PM's (including death-threats from 14-year olds) one have to put up with for having banned somone, it definitley makes sense to think twice.

i'd recommend some MMA-classes, and that you never ever go to a meetup without your lollipop, man.

They weren't lying: Norfolk is one of the dullest places in the UK. The majority of it is open farmland, so not much happens there.
I can't find anything on their local news pages, so I'll assume nothing really 'happened' as such. It usually takes a few days for stuff that 'almost happened' to reach everywhere, and even then news companies might not air it or anything.

Chances are Wade'll be saying something about this in the near future regardless, though.

I doubt NG is a causal factor. Rather, people with that kind of attitude are attracted to sites like NG... maybe for our roots in violence, or for the publicity and radical, left biased userbase.

Also, in regards to news... that link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/norfolk/hi/

It now redirects right to a main BBC site. This morning it was working... COULD THEY BE UPDATING IT?

Internet excitement.

The mods seemed to start swarming over this thread pretty quickly. Do you have beepers or something to alert you when it starts going down on the BBS?

Because that would be awesome if you did.

No, we just all want to be the one mod that was able to lock this without waid noticing >:(

Swarming?

I think the average number of mods have viewed this thread. There's myself and Poozy... Rig was in here first but he's not a BBS mod. Rucklo posted something later in the game... who else posted? Someone must have brought it to Wade's attention, unless his happening upon it was coincidence.

I'd hardly call the mod activity in here a "swarm." Business as usual in a fast growing topic.

No, it hasn't. I get that site. There is an update about an attention whore in the Norfolk area, but he's 26 and called Andrew.

I noticed his sig a few days ago and thought that it might be significant somehow, never thought of Columbine.

I saw his sig as well and thought he was just doing it for laughs. However, I have difficulties reading through post histories and drawing conclusions to other users plans and had I known about sirtom's intents, I probably would have said something.

But this situation seems wrapped up. I declare victory for the fast thinkers here.

i heard something like this happened in PA USA. some kid left a web cam on with a message saying similar things like im gonna kill all the school blah blah blah.. same out come.. he got arrested and shame was brought upon him. If this was a joke this was a very poorly thought out one.

I mean seriously.. hes an upper level so he knows what is possible on newgrounds. they have a staff. this isn't just some 4chan crap. i think he knew in the back of his mind that he would get caught and apprehended ... either that or he posted. went to school thinking OMG i cant wait to get home and see how huge my thread has gotten... WELL ITS BIG NOW SIRTOM YOU DICK. lol

i hope your parent(s) guardians or whatever beat the ever living shit out of you.. im 27 some of my friends have kids.. if i had a kid and i got a call from someone telling me to pick up my child at school or the police station because they pulled some re-re-re-re-retarded shit like this i would have to beat the ever living shit out of them and ground them for at least a year. then i would take over their newgrounds account and do nothing but post stuff about how much i (my child) likes to take it up the ass in the mouth with a cock in each hand. i would probably do this until they got permabanned.

I cant wait till he gets back.. OH the sweet humiliation of it all

Not just that, but you are redirected to the front page if you try to enter the Norfolk site by using the search bar.
At least for me.

The BBC Norfolk site has nothing on the case; to be honest I doubt there will be anyway. It's not like the stupid ginger actually hurt anyone.
Nonetheless, let the circlejerk about saving the day continue.
