I was just waiting for a police officer to make an account so as to post in this thread. Too bad, it didn't happen.

Even if they did, we'd probably all assume it was just an alt fucking around.
I certainly would.

And to think that this ass is with NG. Man what if he says that we were the ones who made him do this?

I doubt it though. I hope he gets what he deserves, ad that he doesn't return here.

At least the Newgrounds Community will be seen in a positive light again, for preventing a hypothetical major disaster. I say hypothetical as I'm not that sure if he was going through with it.

It was a completely stupid thing to do; idiotic, moronic, selfish, retarded (Don't ban me for using this word - expressing how f**king dumb this action was).

People don't think about the devastation of other peoples lives when these events happen. Think Austin Powers 1, with the Henchman. People you kill have feelings - people who know people killed will have feelings, which will be extremely affected by this puerile discord of Humanity. You think you'd be a Martyr, dying for your cause? Nope, you'd only be remembered for the infamy of your actions - not the human you destroy inside you when you commit acts that destroy others.

You don't lose your future in prison, you steal others as well. Despicable.

Right, rant over. Back to cock jokes.

Luis we are people, and people do random things. Just because you have a metal detector just means we hide explosives next time.

Sounds violent, but there's nothing you can do to prepare for the future. You just have to survive what come and learn how to handle the situation when the situation arises...

or hire security guards

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?

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.
