Thanks for a bit of sanity over all this. I've been saying this for months. As a mechanical designer, I work with 3D printed parts regularly. No way would I mess with a firearm that came off of any rapid prototype machine I know of.
People have been making zip guns for years. Dangerous as hell but safer than any 3D printed gun.
So when someone is suffering from a disease that is so debilitating that they take their own life, you call that cowardice? Depression is a real disease, combined with being unjustly persecuted for allegedly violating a sites terms of service, facing massive punishment, it's not surprising that he was pushed over the edge.
I really do not see how people can just blow off a victim of suicide as a coward. It's caused by chronic depression. It's really amazing how some people think.
Comcast did this for years & I felt like I was the only one complaining. My wife & I played WoW for a couple years back at launch & we always had trouble getting our patches. Of course my brother on DSL was all patched & playing before I even got home from work. On at least one occasion I had to get the patch from other sources.
When the scandal erupted over Comcrap throttling ports, I was of course not surprised. Then again I was no longer a Comcrap customer.
