At least now we know what he'll be whining about in his next album.

Freedom of speech has never covered threats of any sort. If you seriously think freedom of speech should cover threatening to harm another human being I'd like you to explain why. And despite what a number of people think, this isn't something that's confined to the President, threaten some average joe on the street and you'll see that.

And what would happen if I as not american would say I would kill Bush? Does the same law apply. So when does to fit only if I am in America or if I am an American??

Making death threats internationally isn't any smarter than doing it here in the States. You'd probably be investigated by your local authorities and if you did make the threats be charged under local law or extradited.

If you are in the United States, Title 18 applies, full stop.

Depends, if he's not American and the board isn't hosted in the US.

No issues.

Lord MJ is an American, and to the best of my knowledge, Mike's board is still hosted on his service - also located there.

In addition, if h0rus is an American citizen, he can still get burned anyways. It has happened on another board that I was on - the Secret Service came to give someone an unpleasent talk.

I don't really care, you can bash Bush as much as you want, but I wouldn't like to see anyone on this forum get in trouble.

John Wilkes Booth was an actor, if you may recall. If you can show a pattern of those who have attempted (and/or succeeded in) assasinating US presidents, by all means do so.

So he'll get an interview with the Secret Service and probably nothing of any importance will happen. You make it sound like he's being persecuted!

Yeah, though as far as I am concerned its on par stupidity wise with the fucking law over here that putting postage stamps with the reigning monarch on a letter upside down is an act of treason.

Do you even realize what you originaly did and what it means to this board? As others have made abundantly clear what you did is a very real danger to Mike and the continued existance of this board. This has nothing to do with kissing the Presidents ass. I myself can't stand Bush but I am very aware of the issue of threatening the Presidents life. It is against the law and causes many more problems then one can think.

Your little snipe is not well thought out and your continued mockery of the moderator staff is not appreciated. You shouldn't have edited your post either time. Think things over h0rus, you did things that have highly agrivated the moderator staff and members of this board.

Okay, this is just a warning, folks...

Dear h0rus and weemadando:
Do not do this again. The consequences laid against you will be quite dire.

DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR?


Edit: Upon consultation with another admin, I have reversed h0rus's punishment based on the fact that the incident is two days old and that I acted hastily.
