Or you could point to the part where he stipulated that people were committing suicide 'around the world' every 40 seconds.

Get back to me at your own convenience.


I agree with you on a lot of matters here, but you sure make it difficult for me to want to argue on your side. Talking down, insulting and trying way too hard to use big words as if it somehow fortifies your point are terrible debate strategies.

For the suicide argument, he said it happens every 40 seconds. There was no reason to believe that he was specifically talking about Canada. You made a mistake and you're burying yourself deeper. You'll receive much more respect in the future by just admitting that you misunderstood the statement.

Doesn't understand someones post-- they can't communicate affectively.
Someone can't understand his post-- they have poor reading comprehension.


Again, please quote where you saw, from his posts, where he was referring to 'world figures'.

I'll wait.

Your interpretation =/= comprehension.

She definitely did, but didn't deserve to be bullied to the point of suicide for it.

(waits for SS to start ripping into this guy now for having a different opinion about this story)

Your agreement was never necessary nor important to me. Should you choose to argue against the inanity of others, argue them on your own motivations.

If my words are too 'big' for you, i suggest you buy a thesaurus.

And by the same logic, there's no reason to suggest that he was talking about the world wide stats. Logic works, try it.

She acknowledged her mistakes in the video. It doesn't matter if a person cares or not about Amanda Todd though. As much as I'd love to be able to make people see the bigger picture as to why this is such a big deal. Amanda Todd has very little to do with it.

so assuming i was talking about world stats is not logical, but assuming i was talking about canadian stats is because it supports your weak argument? interesting

So a relatively infrequent member makes a civil and valid point and you try to marginalize his/her contribution and subtlety attack his/her intelligence? There may be members on these forums who say really distasteful comments but you are the most toxic member I've ever seen. You have no respect for anyone unless they agree with you and you equate ignorance with opinions that don't fit into your world views. Please retort with the usual quips about my intelligence or comprehension.

Nope, which is why I didn't put up Canadian numbers in response to your 'every 40 seconds' post.

If a member on this board, infrequent or not, makes a distasteful comment for public consumption, then their comment is open to attack.

Sharpshooter and TowelPower12 have been permanently suspended due to personal attacks and abusive behaviour.

While they were the major belligerents here I'd like to remind everyone to please maintain respect for your fellow users even if their viewpoint offends you. Personal attacks and abusive, belittling behaviour are not acceptable and there's no excuse for the type of discussion that has taken place in these last few pages.

I'm keeping the violating posts visible as an example and a warning to everyone. Re-opening the thread - please act like civilized human beings.

Riiiiight, i'm just like those bashing her, but you're her hero by posting a video diminishing the outpouring of condolences and grief over her death by posting a video that basically does that because there wasn't as much outpouring for other tragedies.

Trolling mission accomplished.


Nope. I have more than once called it cowardly to bash a dead girl. Especially online. I've stated that here too. So I'm flip flopping on the issue like Mitt Romney does on numerous issues, or..? I simply posted that video for discussion as there was a valid discussion there. For someone who claims to rely on evidence, as evidenced in the religion thread, you're basing your claims of me being a troll on absolutely nothing.

All quotes by me contradicting exactly what you're accusing me of:


"Well said.

Especially when it comes to bashing a dead girl. You have to be a real cowardly piece of trash to go about doing that."



" This happened in England when that soccer player Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the field. Some idiot on twitter kept laughing, making offensive remarks about it and Muamba's race and eventually was jailed for 56 days. That's the problem with free speech. Any dick can say whatever he pleases with the sole intent of pissing the masses off."



" Seems unlikely, but I hope this does happen. The disrespect and indecency coming from some people is disgusting yet not surprising:

RCMP & Amanda Todd family plea for ppl to stop posting hateful messages to RIP social media pages. Posters could face charges/legal action."


Check mate, I win.

Not sure if this will be deleted or I will receive a warning but I should at least be able to defend myself here.

Sharpshooter is the perfect example of a cyber bully, ironic how he's posting in an Amanda Todd thread.

Finally he's gone, good riddance. Crossed the line when he called out that guy's religion.

To be perfectly honest, can he even be charged with anything severe?

Well if he was over 18 at the time then he could easily be charged with distribution of child pornography or dubbed as a pedophile.

How do you figure? It's not like they are going to keep the public updated every step of the way or even tip their hand. They will build the case and will act when they have the necessary evidence in place for a charge to be laid.
