  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    Wow. That's terrible. Is there any information on who was behind it? I can't find anything.

    There's a map of where the blasts went off. Hopefully there's no more deaths :(

    I would speculate that it's a homegrown unhinged white dude. Doesn't really seem like a terrorist attack.

    It's a terrible tragedy no matter who did it.

    It's an odd thought but...
    I'd bet on the US supreme court considering whether human genes can be patented being more important in the grand scheme of things than this bombing (tragic though it is, it's less than those killed by breast cancer every day in a Boston and probably doesn't require the amount of attention given to it).
