This time it just happens that the person who made this suit incidently managed to find this and took a rather overzealous offence to it.

You,him and others seem to be forgetting that, the internet is populated by people who use the internet. How do the replies seen in threads like this still surprise you?
I shall say one last thing here. This is not aimed at any one person, despite the quote.

There is no such thing as an "inherent right to say what you want". You have the ability to say what you want, but we live within a society that has both written and unwritten rules on what you should say, and what you shouldn't.

Just because you can say something, doesn't mean you should. Take a few minutes to consider consequences before you write/say whatever just popped into your head. Consider that it might offend/be taken wrong/be a truly dickish thing to say full stop.

Too many problems today stem from a lack of responsibility for our own actions. If more people realised that you, and you alone are responsible for what comes out of your mouth, and the consequences of that, then the world would be a nicer place.

Internet anonymity doesn't change that what is being said shouldn't be being said. It's too easy a step to make from "I can say whatever I like because I'm anonymous and will never actually meet these people" to "I'll just talk like that all the time".

Also, just because you're anonymous doesn't mean the person on the recieving end isn't a real person. Try to remember that.

And I've been on this forum a long time. "Dark sense of humour" is not the same as "license to be a twat". Some things are just not funny, and should not be trivialised.

Yes, I have insulted people in my life. But if it's been inadvertant, I've apologised. If it's been intended, it's been bloody obvious. But most importantly, if it's been jokingly, it's been really obvious it's a joke, and never at the expense of personal issues.

If no-one but you can tell it's a joke, then it's not a joke.

There are 2 rules to being a success in life:
1) Never give out all the information

Soooo you couldn't tell that was a joke? Nor could one or two others somehow? Because the vast majority of us saw it for exactly what it was. A joke.

The maker of this suit didn't help himself by completely misconstruing the entire thread on the Lexicanum page on Facebook, deciding to claim the entire thread was about bashing him and insulting his work and others like him, which wasn't the case even slightly.

Though granted, having the Lexicanum fan page turning against us is about as irrelevant as Anne Franks drum kit.

Being the subject of bullying for nigh-on 20 years of school, "Dur-hurr, just a joke, mate!" was a common excuse when said "jokers" were taken to task by teachers/parents/whatever, and the event was just brushed off. Seems to me that the event in question was more than "just a joke", but more of a "Ooo-err, the cool kids have found a new guy to pick on!" situation, with the gang mentality taking over for "just a bit of fun, mate, don't take it SO seriously!"...

Rather bugs me when we basement (or attic)-dwelling neck-beards go at each other when so often WE were the victims of similar bullying...

This is not bullying, let's be clear. This was someone expressing an opinion in a somewhat comedic way about a video on the internet. Whether you agree or not, this was one silly post.

If you want to see bullying, become a Mod. Jez is so mean to us...

That's exactly what Jez says in the beginning!

Lets just get this straight shall we, I would have said this to the guys face, its nothing to do with internet anonymity, I couldn't give a flying fuck what this guy or any of you think of me, I really don't care! You can bitch, moan, whine and even offer death threats should you feel it appropriate, I still don't give a fuck.

If the person who made this suit wants to take it up with me then fine, I was the guy on Tardbook who quoted the JOKE made early on in the thread, find me on FB an call me as many cunts as you want, I'll still tell you you're not even a blip in my life and if my comments hurt you that's your problem not mine.

If you really want to I could meet you IRL and I'll call you a twat to your face, hows that for internet anonymity?
