What's to stop them from looking down on the front page and seeing the new Madness by Matt Jolly? What's to stop them from questioning David Firth? The media can go crazy sometimes. I just hope that other flash artists don't questioned of their mental stability because their flash resemble Jeff Weise's. :(

Now that the media is reporting Newgrounds.com as the site where Jeff posted his Flash entries we have had an increase in traffic. These visitors are heavily searching out Jeff's work so we have decided to make it easier for them to find. This will hopefully help alleviate the strain they are putting on our database server caused by their searches.

Jeff submitted these entries back in October of 2004. If you don't know who Jeff Weise is, pick up a US newspaper or check out this online article.

I have placed reviews on "Clown" and "Target Practice" for anyone who honestly cares, but anyways. The people who just come on and say "That was sucks and he killed people." Need to think a bit more. I Do blame him for his actions, but there are others who set them in motion. Read his responses to reviews made on his flash<---very telling. Also, visit this http://www.nazi.org/nazi/policy/wei se/ They condone his actions, and say it was his free thinking, in a non-thinking society that caused it. God help us if a figure of taht thinking should ever take a seat of power. My 2 cents........

Newgrounds has been getting bad publicity since Pico's School. Just check out the Hate Mail section in Literature, if you don't believe me. And Wade isn't exploiting the situation, since he makes no money off of the flash, and is probably going to lose some money hosting it if more people see it than the server can handle. He might even lose advertisers who would be offended to be promoting Weis. He's doing it because there's just no way to keep it secret anymore, and even if there was, it wouldn't help anyone wanting to know what was going on in that poor bastard's mind. Maybe it can save more people like Weis and future potential school-shooting victims. On the other hand, this is what you call making money off a tragedy.

I don't really know how to feel about this. Sure, it's wrong to exploit a young man's tragedy only to get attention geared toward the site, but maybe his flash had nothing to do with what he did recently. Sure, it's foreshadowing, but maybe it's a coincidence. Or maybe I'm just talking out of my ass and the flash was really a cry for help. But his comment said specifically that he was just doing it to test out Flash. I mean, there's approximately an assload of violent stuff on this site, but not all of the people who made that stuff went out and murdered their classmates. Well, Newgrounds sure is getting a lot of attention lately, isn't it?

I understand why it is on the front page but I don't think that it needs the pretty little picture or the discription like it's the latest viral craze. A simple sentence at the top stating "Increased traffic due to recent media reports have been straining our servers so we are linking the Jeff Weise flash here to prevent taking searches."

Did anybody ever read that book "give a boy a gun"? That book reminds me of this whole Jeff Weise propaganda.

This is a pretty good suggestion. It also pushes NG further away from Weise's actions.

When they start blaming video games, you just say "The Huns, Vikings, Barbarians, Stalin, Hitler, were some of the most violent people. None of them played video games, had the Internet, etc."

I don't see why people would blame video games in the first place. Kids should have enough sense to realize that they're only fictional, unless based on a true story. Nothing from those games are real. It usually pisses me off to see parents blame overly violent video games. If they're worried about them so much, then why'd they by them for their kids in the first place? It's a big contradiction there.

I dont know if anyone has noted this yet, but in his profile it says one of his favorite movies is "Elephant". This really caught my eye because it came out 1 or 2 years ago and is based on the story of Columbine. Its a movie about the killer's lives and decisions, just thought i might point that out if it hasnt already and make the connection here, is anyone else seeing it?


always behind schedule.

The flash just sends chills to me. He goes and makes a violent flash, and he makes it real. He was a creepy kid.

i think personally that even with the attention it was getting it doesn't deserve to be on the front page

........i also think NewGrounds is becoming a media whore with them posting flashes on the front page just because of the news

So if Newgrounds.com is part of a big news story, front page of the NY Times, AP, etc, we can't share that with our visitors? We're supposed to pretend we're not making headlines?
