I would welcome more people who do not think throwing people out of helicopters is a good idea.

Agreed, what the hell is going on in the comments of this thread. Everyone is suddenly all gung-ho about throwing people they don't politically agree with out of helicopters. Not acceptable.

How can everyone afford all of these helicopter rides?

I think that's part of the "It's just hypothetical!" allure to help them skirt the rules while they make death threats

That's pretty clever.

In a way. But in another way these people are too stupid to figure out something more productive to do than making veiled death threats, so it's hard to see them as really being that clever

Yes. It puts you and Saidit in a shitty spot.

Hyperbole murder threats are bad form.

I say, "A pox on all of their flea-bitten helicopter-riding associates!!!*

Yes. It puts you and Saidit in a shitty spot.

One might even go so far as to say that this is the actual purpose of it. To help destroy saidit by hiding murder threats within seemingly innocent material. It's to be expected though, in this era of the internet. Information warfare is annoying, but I think we've got some pretty decent defenses.
