Escaped 'Spam King' commits murder/suicide.

In a ZDNet Tech Update Newsletter today, "Convicted spammer Eddie Davidson, who escaped from federal prison over the weekend, killed his wife and 3-year-old daughter before killing himself in what is being described as a murder-suicide."

I don't mind him committing suicide, that's one less spammer for us to worry about, but what a coward and completely insane ba**ard to murder his daughter and wife.

apologize for my language.

It doesn't matter what the reason was, if we Mods are to delete such posts automatically on reading from others, then using similar language myself defeats the object and sets a dangerous precedent.

SEMods, feel free to delete as you wish.

Even our filter can find it dfficult as some words can have perfectly acceptable usages in the English language.

IMO, sometimes what can be more important is the collective use of words rather than individual ones. For instance, when they are used to insult, ridicule, demean, or bait.

When we read or hear of such senseless events as the murder/suicide, there is a flood of emotions. Anger is one of them. I think at that moment that I would be able to mow that man down myself were he not already dead.
