That said, perhaps the AH mods could explain why a link containing an real, live human being being hit by a train is being left on the site?
1. It's up there on the internet for all to see.
2. We think that there is merit in it. It reminds people of the dangers of playing near live train tracks.
3. We have banned users in some cases and removed a number of insensitive comments from that thread.
4. I have received no admin / cmod request to remove the link and think that there is merit in it remaining.
You can't just cover your eyes and pretend that bad things don't happen. Well. Not in AH anyway.
