However, for an adult to actually wish severe harm on specific innocent individuals ~ related to a thoughtless child ~ takes the matter at least one step further. I found that unfortunate, surprising and beyond acceptable ~ and I received complaints about it.
How does that help the situation, or teach Yowo anything?
It simply makes matters worse.
This is, I suppose, where my personal hat and moderator hat overlap. You and others may or may not disagree.
I was taught that two wrongs don't make a right and that it is wrong to wish harm onto anyone.
I did not wish him any harm.
I only wished him what he was
If he was celebrating an occassion when people were harmed - then it was his fault.He should not wish for others that which he does not wish for himself
When he reacted by saying 'That's not cool' - I guess he learnt his lesson.
Anyway, I disagree with your action, but I shall move on.
And for people who complained, I would say, they could have written to me directly expressing their displeasure.
