Your post is a brilliant example of agressive disrespect of other
cultures where lynching is merely a verb which means "execution by
mob" (I think if you told someone in Russia that "lyniching" is an
offensive verb, he would most probably belive you said something
silly). Bear in mind that only 0.55 % of the world population are
sensitive about lyncing.
