    /immediately asks that people dont speculate because its the worst thing you can do.

    Seriously, there is no evidence, and you can only guess. Which isn't productive

    Agreed; disgraceful comment. What an insensitive fool.

    I just thought of something...

    First New York (9/11), then the Madrid train bombings, and now, it seems, London.

    Three of the five cities bidding for the Olympics.

    Unlikely to be related, I know, but a spooky coincidence nonethless.

    Good call rutty.

    sephy, its natural for people to speculate - it helps us try to make sense of sensless acts. Its not productive, but nothing any of us outside of London is.
    Aye. And now I have made my request, I shall leave you all in peace to spout rubbish!

    Aha. Serves me right for clicking back to read the unread threads.

    I reckon it's the Aztecs.

    I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for something to kick off in London. Hope all the EG'ers are ok.

    I feel peeps in the UK ansd especialy London aren't going to be so cynical about the war on terror anymore.

    I'm also surprised that this took so long to happen. Apparently they were just waiting for the right moment. Patience is one of their weapons and the one that has allowed the rest of us to get complacent and dismissive.

    Must be linked to the Olympics. To hurt London both physicaly and economicaly. All the interest on London's transport netwrok to handle the throngs, and now they've gone and blown it up. It will also disrupt G8, which if it were to attack poverty, 3would be attacking the base that fuels Islamist terror.

    I can just see this thread turning out to be a load of completely unfunny jokes posted by some of the insensitive wankers that just come here to upset/annoy people or who have no bloody compassion whatsoever for those involved. Is the thread really necessary?

    I can understand why you'd want to keep it out of the news thread but I'd rather just see the dicks who post shit leave for the day, if that's okay with everyone else.

    I agree - the thread title is stupid.

    Can we change it please?

    Edit - thanks.

    It's only natural to want to try and figure out the reasons behind this, even if it looks pretty obvious who was responsible.

    Not talking no Furbs, as you say it can keep some people sane & a little light-hearted humour is probably required to keep people's spirits up, however I fear that people are going to be insensitive as they have been in the other thread & really its just a plea to them not to post shit today & think of other people for once.

    By all means discuss it but anybody cracking jokes at the expense of those involved will get reported by me to the mods who I hope will ban them from here, as I just find it completely insensitive & not needed.

    I see one person has removed their comment, I can't remember who you were (Blair comment) but thank you, appreciated!

    what happened to gallows humour? I'd say it's a natural reaction to being in a very stressful situation with little real information....

    You think people sat through the Blitz saying, "mustn't make any jokes, let's not be insensitive, think of the seriousness of the situation..."?

    I'm with you. I wonder now who'll be picking up the cost of sorting London's archaic transport system now.

    It wasn't me that removed it.

    It was me that removed.

    There is a time and place for comments like that, now is neither.

    This thread should never have been made. Yes, humour can at times be made from stressfull situations but NOT WHEN THE SITUATION IS STILL ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

    It seems odd that a speculation thread has just become a target for members to moan about people talking about the bombings.

    If you don't like it don't come in. Everyone handles things differently, leave them to it.

    I don't see anything funny about what's happening at all, I also see nothing inviting humour in the thread title. If you don't want to participate in the thread I suggest you leave.

    For now I'm locking this. When things have calmed down I'll open it again.

    Thing is Derblington, it's not talking, it's being insensitive by some select few. Talking's fine, as others have said, jokes are not. They're not handling it anyway, they're just doing it to annoy people.
