Mad firebug on the loose

The ABC warns that Canberras southern suburbs are being stalked by an arsonist lighting a string of fires last night.

“There were nine grassfires reported along Sullwood Drive, near Mount Taylor, and along the Cotter Road between 1:00am and 4:00am AEDT.

It is believed the arsonist may be using a car to get between fire locations.

ACT Fire Brigade District Officer Peter Jeffs says people should write down car number plates if they see suspicious activities late at night.

Anyone want to bet how many bail breaches our arsonist will be given if arrested?

Hey Guys & Girls, there are a few little post-upgrade bugs which I am currently sorting out.

If you are currently posting as Anonymous, then if you logout and back in again it should be fixed (don’t worry you are not really anonymous, as I can tell who you all are in the server logs 🙂

As for the trackback spam… It’s a “feature” in the new codebase we are running now. I’ll get it sorted ASAP.

I once worked with someone convicted of arson. The arson was clearly about some kind of weird ritual thing associated with a skin condition he had. Or something. Nice enough bloke in many ways, but what he did was so far out of line that he had to be stopped. Not evil, just weird.

I loathe what arson means and does (I am, after all, sort of normal). But, if this bloke was in any way representative, he needed time with a shrink much more than he needed to be incarcerated or incinerated.

w00t I’m anonymous.

WTF? Trackback spam now?

Set his (I assume it’s a boy – girls aren’t into this kind of thing) nuts on fire, and give him a water bottle filled with metho to put the fire out with!

That’s a better idea, thumper. Just don’t kill him or seriously wound him again. Better to have a former arsonist who’s shit scared of fires than a ticking time-bomb in a cell for ten (two) years.

I think he should be sent to the worst bushfire-affected areas to help repair the damage to the many hundreds of homes and properties. He should also do this in his underwear with doofus written across his back.
It should be a pleasing punch in the face – always the best form of rehabilitation.

Oh sorry. You must be the wrong Andy who posts on a car web forumn. It was an in-joke.

pandy, say what ?

Yeah especially locked-up in a 380.

I hate these people.
I tihnk they should be arsonated when caught.
