The hopes and prayers of Gorums members are never going to reach the victims' families, nor would they be helpful even if they did. A massacre and tragedy of this magnitude inspires a lot of emotion and intensity in people, and their reactions are an indicator that we are in tune with the world around us and can reassess or affirm our worldviews. As much as I think Mat's views are slightly nutty sometimes, I also don't think basically telling him to stfu is a productive thing in a discussion forum. The thread title is "Colorado Theater Massacre." The OP talks about how the murderer needs to be lined up and shot. Pretty sure nothing except moderator warnings limits this thread to "condolences and prayers." Saying "no debates allowed" sounds so bizarre and arbitrary, in light of the OP, the nature of these forums, and the impact of the tragedy in general.
