What about the ones recommending which weapons to use, or telling him how to do it??? You're probably generally right, though. Not excusable IMO.

It's not excusable because we know what happened. But if nothing happened, it wouldn't be a thing.

It's hard to gage intent on an internet forum. Even this one.

This. Hindsight is 20/20.

For shit on 4chan? Are you fucking serious?

Oh wow I hadn't heard that...last I heard (yesterday) was that he was from the midwest and had no connection to the area..which really didn't make sense because it's not a well-traveled area...

Thank you.

I don't know if it's true - local news are always interesting with this sort of thing. They have a lot more info than the nationals, because they know people there and people talk to them. You get a bunch of info you don't get nationally, but not all of it is true or verified. It's more like gossip.

This whole thing has been a cluster since it started. The number of dead kept jumping around, but the injured remained rather steady...

The whole where he lived and what he said....I dunno...I went to bed feeling so sick. I couldn't think about it anymore.

Yeah, this one is bothering me pretty badly, but not as badly as the reporters one. That one really messed with me.

Yup. Indeed. Going to close this for a few mins to split it.

Back soon


Other thread here

Thread split as requested.

Please try to keep this one for Incident-related information rather that 'root cause'.

Thanks for your patience.

RE: Another school shooting.
The split took away half the thread Tongue. So when you guys split, you actually go post by post and choose which thread to move the post to? I hope you have a tool that makes this easy Smile.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Another school shooting.
And, as has been said, The people in 4chan were probably "joking around" In dudebroOnlineChatGamer culture it's pretty common to see/hear vulgar conversations about killing people or doing other terrible acts. Sad but true.

For instance: People have "threatened" to molest my mother at least 10 times on Starcraft alone.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Nope. It's manual.

I remember having to do it for the 'Pictures For Laughing At Religion' thread.

It took a whole lunch-time (when I was supposed to be schmoozing with my students / clients) in my a hotel room with painful connection speed.

Have a guess how much thanks I got for that?

Yup. You're right.
