This is a question Social Media Meltdowns

Ever said something you've regretted on the internet? Seen somebody make an arse of themselves? Know somebody who posts first and asks questions later? Dob them in to us, the internet police. (We last did this five years ago before Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook really took off, so now's the time for an update)

Thanks to Benny Blanco from the Bronx for the suggestion

I don't care that I missed the cut off, your having it.
In my school we would occasionally be asked to put on little presentation based on something we were learning at the time.

In History we’d reached world war two and decided to go with the whole Nazi / Jew kerfuffle.

It was very tastefully done. We got the skinny kid with a big nose to dress in his pyjamas and hired an SS costume for the handsome athletic kid. I supplied the blank firing Luger, a must have possession for all school children...The whole thing was just a convoluted excuse to play with a replica gun at school. I don’t really remember the details of the one act production, but it ended with the ‘Nazi’ repeatedly screaming “Juden” whilst manically firing blanks at the kid in pyjamas.

We managed to put just enough effort into it for it to be possible to be judged as an ill-conceived, terribly executed, attempt at drama ( which it wasn’t) rather than a piss take (which it was).

My take on h.h's reply was that he's pointing out how inappropriate the behaviour was in the lead story. As neither of us has asked him we won't know what he really meant by it.

This is a picture of the last few moments of some poor sod's life, just before he's publicly executed with a shot to the head and dumped into a mass grave, for no better reason than his race. It's horrific. I imagine there are contexts in which its inclusion is necessary in order to make a point, but this isn't one of them.

Are you really that dim?
you should have included a "Except your mum" bit

You are looking good in this one

I suppose it's possible. I've reread the thread a couple of times, and have yet to fathom why it was necessary to post a very sombre picture on a fairly lighthearted messageboard, but I may well be missing something. Perhaps you could talk me through it?

That's quite an odd accusation, given that you've diagnosed me with autism just a couple of posts above, and with Asperger Syndrome, further up the thread you've linked.

I'm not sure why it's relevant, but yes - my employer is fully aware of my internet usage. Thank you for your interest.

Did you post this story to provoke an online breakdown from Happy Phantom?

(, Fri 21 Jun 2013, 14:38, closed)

I'm not sure calling someone a prick for posting a picture of a racially motivated execution on a comedy website really qualifies as a "breakdown". I don't imagine it would take too much searching to find examples of people being called worse, for less. Still, if you feel that strongly about it, you could always put it in your list - that would certainly show me the error of my ways, given that I hold your opinion in such high regard.

I don't really need IT lessons from a functionally illiterate prick, thanks. I'm not sure why you're crowing about the original source - it was handled with some dignity there, and with plenty of context. You posted it in a shit attempt to be edgy and shocking. Different sort of a thing.
