Wow. If only terrorists knew how easy it is to scare people. You don't have to blow things up or kill people to terrorize, you can just say that you will! But then again, these are the same people who can't seem to figure out that less than 2% of ships coming into the U.S. are searched (shh). Contralya 02:57, 22 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

I'm not sure if you're trying to say students shouldn't be scared. Making a written threat that you're shooting up a school on a specific date is serious. I don't think writing it on a bathroom wall makes it any less serious than sending a written letter to the school. I would be scared if I was attending that university.

Yes. I was just pointing out how words can be nearly as effective at scaring people. Contralya 01:13, 23 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
