Oh dear, that looks like a threat to me

Postby downfader » 9 May 2010, 7:31pm

The comments may have been removed since so please forgive me if this doesnt make much sense.

I saw on MSN news the article about the 5 BC girls who were hit in Belgium. Get well soon ladies!! However some of the comments on there were appauling. Truly sickening. So perhaps others can join me in reporting this nonsense to MSN?

http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/articles.aspx ... 244#uc2Lst

Warning, some of the comments contain swearing and one or two racist words (if the posts are still there, which I sincerly hope not). One user "dvla" says:
run the lot over,when out in a group they just take over the road.if it where motorcycles that would be a gang and plod would turn up, stop us all and give us tickets .there should be a discount on insurance for ever one run over.


If we disable their "voice" I think we can help tackle some of the nonsense we're subjected to on and offline :?

having read some of those comments, it breaks my heart to think that some of the nastiest and stupidest people are legally allowed to drive cars on the public road :cry:

I still see a ray of hope in there, some people have come out in our defence. I'm still amazed that MSN has allowed the comments to stay up.

we know that many drivers are decent sorts, it doesn't really matter if they comment on internet pages or not.
it's the fact that such vile & vindictive people are out of prison that upsets me, let alone out in cars :(

I've met some people like that in person. Most of them are too cowardly to actually act on a vile fantasy such as written there, however theres always one or two that really will scare the hell out of you. That geezer in the DMail article the other week... one example imo. Still thankfully so, so rare.

Standard internet nonsense.

The world is full of sad little people who are so miserable that their only "enjoyment" is trying to get a rise from others by writing crap like that.

There are probably politicians who would espouse similar views about immigrants, look at the BNP.

I agree. They're pathetic powerless individuals who are cocky and think they are big sat at home in safety. They would never say anything like that to someone's face.
