RW message on the event[edit]

Do we want to have something small on the page with a human, empathic response to the event itself, both to provide contrast to CP's completely abhorrent behaviour, but also just as a statement? I don't think (I hope) anyone here, unless User:Conservative decides to drop in and offer to "debate" any of us on it, is going to speak against an expression of sympathy and support for the victims. I don't want to unilaterally take over part of the page to go off-topic with a direct addressing of the shooting. Maybe in a different spot on the wiki instead?

Like the edit summary says, I decided to do it anyway. I tried not to make it sound wishy-washy and cliched or trite. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 01:54, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
I agree with the sentiments, but the page itself is supposed to be an accounting of CP's commentary on the tragedy. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 01:58, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
That would be why I hesitated and put it up on here before saying fuck it and taking the initiative. I also won't complain if it's removed on this basis, since it is somewhat off-topic for the page. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:00, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
I deleted it. Thanks for understanding. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 02:18, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
I think your replacement section more than adequately captures the same thing without going offtopic or coming off as sappy and trite. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:27, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
