Michael, that was really off-topic, unnecessary, and a complete waste of bytes. 

When you write something sarcastically, the social connotations have zero relevance. I was ridiculing the excess of violence in the thread, that leads to nothing constructive. 
But then, perhaps the level of aggressiveness has reached a point where obvious sarcasm is taken literally?


PS: And to be fair; taking the lynching thing as a sensitive issue in USA is badly US centric; the term is used worldwide and in hundreds of languages, and has no necessary connection with black people.
