My full time job is not being a judge of forum squabbles, but once the subject gets steered to people wishing or not wishing other people's death, that is just way too far for me. Sorry bomber, you were already way into extended time on the forum here anyway.

Well, that is entirely on him if you ask me, wishing someone dead is just not OK.

I think the death threat is a little to far, even if meant in a joking way.

lol
I don't care really, since it wasn't aimed at me, but I do think for a first offence a warning might have been better than simply, banning him from the forums entirely. I don't think bomber's comment was appropriate.

But hey... I'm also one strike away from being banned, so who am I talking.

Kind Regards,
Josh

I don't know if you want it, but my opinion is that this was 100% deserved.
Even as a joke, "Why don't you just die and put us all out of our misery...." is completely inappropriate.
It would just be a matter of time after that was said...

Haha., Bomber was long time member of the banned club.
He just got promoted to the "permanent banned" club, where SHM, JWocky and IH-COL are lifetime members as well.

On the other hand, what bomber said was not literal, nor a joke of wishing Thorsten dead. You are all failing miserably on your abilities to read along the lines, and understanding meaning. Some of you are doing that on purpose (mimicking the stupid [Thinking Hooray, Curt, and Thorsten himself in this group]), while others are honestly, or apparently, totally unable to grasp undertone in the language.

And still, in a complete literal sense, I cannot but 100% agree (in Legoboy's terms) with Bomber that the World will be a better place when Thorsten finds his final rest. And surely the FG community will find rest when Thorsten finds his eternal peace. [Tell Curtis to come ban me if he can, and tell Thorsten that I don't wish him dead, but that I am not crying on his grave, either]

Amen,
Best,
IH-COL

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Well, lets say it in another way around, and take this from a man, who once gathered 400 death threads in 24 hours, nobody ever became a good person only by dying. If someone was an asshole in lifetime, he can't change retroactively after dying. So, I won't dance on THorsten's grave if he would die, but I will not cry either. Each of those options would give him an importance he doesn't deserve.

Where can I read Bomber's offensive message? I'm not seeing it anywhere...
