He posted a horrific picture of a victim of the Boston bombing. headlined, this is what happens when you don't finish the job!!!! Above which is a man on the floor with his leg blown off from below the knee and just a shin bone left...
Cousin lives in Boston but born in Ireland. Full NRA etc. think this has got to mean blocking him. nothing else for it.
I called hm a fucking wanker. we don't even know who is responsible.
Might be in trouble with some folk. oh dear. oh dear.
Anger management for me d'ya think?

Dickhead. Report and block.

Wanker was an under-reaction tbh.

Don't blame you at all. How vile.

I'd have gone down the blocking/ fucking wanker route with this one too.

Next time take a screen shot, report and block.

I think you were far too polite.

Cherriesarelovely Wed 17-Apr-13 14:49:43

No, you don't need anger management, yours was a wholly appropriate response.

Jesus. That is clearly hate speech and FB does have reporting options for such posts.

YABU - you should have called him a cunt!

I'm confused. Is her saying, 'This is what happens when you don't work hard enough to eradicate terrorism", or "This is what happens when you don't bomb people thoroughly enough"?

Likely the cousin, especially being a fully paid up NRA member etc and the mentality that often goes with NRA members (not all, but many) and the crass posting of the picture for shock tactics, I would hazard a guess that the cousin hates all Muslims and is complaining that the past (how many years is it now?) of WAR ON TERROR in the Middle East hasn't been effective enough...but I could be wrong...I'm just guessing.

He is a wannabe moron. He has bought wholesale into the whole kill all Islamists and job done. I simply cannmot believe him. I am going to report, I didn't think you could do that. Back in a mo. However, he is getting shredded by many other so thats ok. His brother gently pointed out that 55 people were killed in blasts in the middle east yesterday and there was no coverage in the main for them.

skippedtheripeoldmango Wed 17-Apr-13 16:56:42

Yes, you have a certified loon for a cousin!

lolaflores Wed 17-Apr-13 16:56:59

Would someone tell me how to report it please ta ever so? Bit of a thicko here. must be genetic.

skippedtheripeoldmango Wed 17-Apr-13 16:58:43

He'll also be eating humble pie if this turns out to be a home grown terrorist attack..which it could well be.

skippedtheripeoldmango Wed 17-Apr-13 16:59:08

Hang on...I'll go look for you...

skippedtheripeoldmango Wed 17-Apr-13 17:01:15

At the top right hand side of the post there is a small button marked with a downward pointing v - press that and a drop down menu will come up with one of the options being to report...and then after you've done that you can then use the handy "hide" option too smile

Skipped thank you so much. He will be terribly embarrased when it is one of his Obama hating, gun toting, macho fucking inbred grunters that he likes to feel part of the gang with. I am reporting then blocking.
Mind you, he was the biggest fucking grass when we were kids. Couldn't wait to tell on anyone doing fucking anything, wee snake.

lolaflores Wed 17-Apr-13 17:02:36

Skipped you are a scholar. many thanks
Back soon

lolaflores Wed 17-Apr-13 17:09:54

done. reported his stupid arse to them.
I just hope no one else saw it on my timeline or whatever. he is now also unknown to me. the galloping fucking idiot

skippedtheripeoldmango Wed 17-Apr-13 17:14:07

None of your friends have seen it unless you shared it on your timeline yourself so no worries there.

CiderwithBuda Wed 17-Apr-13 17:15:26

What is it with Irish cousins living in Boston? I have just such an idiot. He is not as bad as yours though. And has been called on so much FB rubbish that he seems to have given up.
