One little thing that has really troubled me and sadly media or police is not following up on is that the shooter posted his plan on 4chan, which seems to be a message board like kinja, and people encouraged him and some attacked him. Sadly no one stopped him.

It did trigger a memory for me. A memory that could be used today. Back in the 90s before twitter, kinja et al the usenet was king of message boards. Every once in a while talk would go towards porn and how rampant it was in areas of usenet. Keep in mind usenet had literally thousands of message boards. Someone would post an FBI address and instructions if they saw highly questionable and outright illegal porn.

Now we have people literally telling folks they will commit mass murder via posts. We need to adopt a similar plan. No its highly doubtful what happened in 4chan will happen here. Yet Yankees (of New England) believe hope for the best but expect the worst. There should be in the faq a listing of who to contact if a posting like that appears here. Contact as in not a mod but FBI. I assume domestic terrorism Part of FBI. Also faq should be easily accessible. Right now it isn’t.

Just an idea. Thoughts? I do not believe this would happen here.
