Steve said it somewhere else - if people want to view it, they'll find it. The guys' NG username was posted on The Smoking Gun (and reposted on Fark, as well as other mainstream news sites) ages ago. Putting it on the front page just facilitates their finding it.
Exactly, but my point is we actually SHOULDN'T faciliate it.
Do you also think they should delete Livecorpse's movies?
No, there's a difference between violence and reality, it's only when they come together that we have to stop it, as it's the case of what we're currently debating about. This is a cheap argument, you know there's a huge difference between both authors.

Screw morals. They're too ambiguous anyway. And Newgrounds is a place to showcase your art, so I don't see why they should deleted Weise's just because he was secretly very evil.
The point is not to take all the violent content out of newgrounds, but to take out the submissions of someone who actually killed innocent people and himself. It only shows that newgrounds has absolutely no respect for the victims of the tragedy.
Listen, what I'm mostly worried about in this whole situation, is that newgrounds gives itself by doing such a thing a really bad and sad picture. It's a big mistake to promote such a thing ... and I'm not talking about the moral reasons to avoid doing so, since nobody apparently cares about it.
