I'm sorry for the longer post, but I feel that this weird fact of the media not showing NGs name shouldn't take priority over the case itself any longer.
I see your point and you're right, it's just the way the media reacts to these things and twists what people think is something that really interests me. It's not like Newgrounds is a stranger to bad press and bad press and more bad press. The difference here is that it was all the users that were against him, posting not to do it, calling the police etc. So if anything it should shine well on the site and community, however it's the media and they'll play the story how they want. If 'Internet Is Breeding School Killers' will sell, they'll run it.

Man you got modded for that shit.
Yeah, Sirtom93 probably had a few serious issues at home or school if he actually wanted to do such a thing. Although I was aware of this event on the day it happened, why didn't you mention this sooner?
Visiting Newgrounds Since 2003

TBA cunts are known for massive amounts of butt hurt crying and temper tantrums, you'll hurt their feelings man....
We post animated pornography, ultra-violent games, host flash submissions with questionable ethical subtletees, oh and we prevent school attacks.

Just found this site again on Friday. Today (Monday) I found out you guys are heros. Weird
Wow, all this happened while I was away for a week? O_O
I must say, this kind of makes up for the horrible things that our NG users have already done in the past. We're not all a bunch of nuts afteral, ha. Very good job deckheadtottie, Rig, Wade, and anyone else I missed that was involved! I'm proud of you guys (:
I guess all of you make a good chance for a user of the year award now, eh? :P
Suck that 4chan, you say you're better that cause you saved a little cat that later died? Well we saved a whole school, full with kids and fucking lab rats, who's the man now?!
When I started seeing the games and hearing some stories, I thought it was something that happened a few years ago. After a little bit, I realized that it happened just the other day. Good thing NG users are know to report something like that
I wonder if it will be on BBC news tonight and i'll say he was from Newgrounds and my mum and dad will wonder what im on about!
I never heard about this till now. When I heard about sirtom93 I was thinking to myself "I'm sure I've heard that name before..." Then it hit me. I had been talking to him via PM in December. Here is proof (although I'm sure you don't need it. I just thought I would post it anyway)

Awesome. Happy christmas then. Will you be going to the Ng london meet?
Then I said something like "can't be bothered" (I'm sure none of you really care, but thats why I found this interesting)
You have just wasted precious seconds of your life by looking at my sig :P
What I can't still believe is that he says he was doing it just for show, and yet he didn't think about the possible consequences by posting his 'supposed' intentions here. How stupid or non caring do you have to be to not think that the people here wouldn't do something? I think it's great that his cocky behavior in the original thread was responded to (Somthing along the lines of slow police response time) the way it was. Not to mention his general attitude and intended actions scream selfishness. If he had actually done anything, he's hurting not only the people who he doesn't like, but also people who have nothing to do with him. What did they do to deserve anything? Nothing, which makes him even lower in my eyes.
I say good luck to Sirtom93. Good luck getting yourself out of this giant hole you dug for yourself.

Hopefully he'll learn from this... but you never really know. It all seems lke a big cry for attention to me, and if it is, it's worked. Look at all the threads and flash games about him recently. Hasn't exactly shown him in a good light though, which is a plus. The last thing we need is him coming back to NG and feeding off his 15 minutes of 'fame'.
A sad day when the people you're close to end up getting themselves in such a bad mess. I'm just glad someone took it seriously enough to act; I was starting to think no one had learned anything from Columbine. (Except maybe "omgz goths r bad," which is ridiculous and had nothing to do with it.)
My well wishes go out to Sirtom, and I hope this is resolved with as little fallout as possible. A bit late, I know, but I'm saying it all the same.
Well I hope he gets the help he needs, so many bad things going on in the news lately.
I love hunting for Blam points!!!

Well, it was funny, but some might disagree that it's stupid.
Alas, we have lost another user, though. That's three...
Yes. | EJR sucks!

I don't think so. They actually did Find a knife on him.
I think we all brought fireworks and stuff to schools at some stage maybe the knife was a bit far.
The Sirtom93 incident had nothing to do with Shakespeare in my mind until you said "this is a bittersweet tale". Then then the connotations of the word "bittersweet" made me think of the opening sonnet from Romeo and Juliet, which is weird because it doesn't even have the word in it.
In fair General, where we lay our scene?
