Anyone following our forums or the NG Tweets already knows, but this past week, Rig, deckheadtottie and fellow NG users thwarted a potential school attack!
You can read all about it on Rig's page, including a timeline of events, press coverage and links to Flash parodies already posted here on NG.
The latest is this NY Times article, which landed on the front page of the Digg Bubble and scored plenty of snarky comments from Diggers who didn't know NG still exists.
While it's awesome that NG folks were heroic in the face of a possible school attack, this is a bittersweet tale because it involves one of our own. Sirtom93 has been around NG for a few years now and made a brief appearance at the recent London Meetup. Meetup folks are like family, so it's sad to see Sirtom93 get himself into this mess. If he was joking around, hopefully he's learned a valuable lesson. If he wasn't, hopefully he'll get the help he needs.
