I hummed and harred over whether to report it because I'm a little curious as to what the next post will be in approximately the year 2030.

Don't worry, others did report it.
As funny as the idea might appear, a line of profanities once every 8 years is not considered a valuable contribution to this site.
Dungeoned.

It looks like members posting in  This Thread  are advocating violence against police.

It doesn't appear to be advocating actual, calculated violence - it reads more like expressing anger with hyperbole at the lack of activity by police at the time of the shooting.

"Blood for blood" is not advocating violence?  I sincerely and respectfully disagree.

Sometimes it just comes off as being a tattle-tale over nothing, or over your personal feelings towards certain posters.

I'm interested to find that out too. I was looking forward to looking through it tomorrow and responding to people's posts.

It's a question of degree and intent, neither of which is apparent in that thread. Often things don't literally mean what they say and this is one of those times. Wishing that there should be some form of "blood for blood" punishment is just that - a wish expressed in hyperbole and anger blowing off steam about a past event.

I don't doubt that actual, meaningful plotting (in public?) with the clear intention of causing harm to someone - 1. wouldn't be done in public and 2. would be very easily seen for what it is.
But this isn't it.

This member is trolling and spamming the board with personal attacks.

Please move several pages of off topic arguing over an avatar someone had years ago, to random discussion or wherever.

Agreed, but it's going to take some time to sift through all that... noise and separate the wheat from the chaff.

Wait, was it removed entirely? There were interesting conversations going on and posts that real effort had been put into, could it not have simply been re-titled and moved to Random?

No. The level of personal fights that appeared there would not be acceptable. Also, derailing threads is explicitly against WrongPlanet.net rules and, well, let me quote someone:

It fully deserved a removal.
