All the conspiracy theorists out there might want to watch out. If this was some kind of conspiracy, the feds might be here to see who connected the dots and got it right.

intended to instigate a row.
I can think of no better reason to publicly defend ATS in the future than the humble gesture of laying bare Weise's sentiments, which you would rather closet,
he should be remembered as a victome not as the perpitrater of a heines crime.
no i uderstand that but to stop things like this from occureing you have to stop the root cause that is the point
Anyone who knows me knows that I am very similar

An undesirable side effect of this is that it may be the spark that fires up a cry for more control of the internet.
I watched some talking heads cherry-pick Weise's posts for salient words to throw out as sound bites. There was so much feigned outrage over "How is it that there is not more control over these sites?" that it worries me.
After going over the post and reading some of them from the member in question, I have to say that the sign were there but nobody was able to see them.
I suggest that as members we should for now on be more awared of each other and what we post in the boards.
do you know what it's like to be bullied? have you ever been beat up and/or humiliated? the MORE you fight, the MORE you are a target and the MORE fun you are to pick on...The only way to get out of the situation is to be passive and wait for it to go away.

I disagree.. I belive that it would be prudent for 00PS to remove his 'posts'.

Thats bull. I was bullied for a little while in school, until I broke the bullies nose. Never heard another word from him. Most bullies are they way they are because they think it makes them look cool by picking on someone who they think won't do anything about it. Nothing changes that belief like having your butt kicked in front of your own friends who you are trying to impress.

shyte happens for a reason - perhaps the reason might be that those
events instill lessons and strength AND love within us that we can pass
over to others walking in the shoes we've walked in.

Were the "signs" really there. Many people dress in black, listen to goth music and embrace different political/religious ideals.
This kid was intelligent. We can clearly see that through his posts here and via other websites.

but the BULLIES caused him to snap, they made him that way, bullying needs to be taken care of and the bullee must be evaluated by a shrink and treated accordingly.
you are still unpopular and you'll be beat up and retaliated against if you beat up a popular person
If he's bigger, stronger and got more people like him backing him, that isnt the course of action to take
