Remember this

If you ever wonder that there might be an end to human depravity in celebrating the suffering of others then remember this and this and this because the answer, sadly, is no. I can only think the people responsible for this stuff are broken in some way. To think they were probably much like Hobbits once.

Why did you link to the sites? The Russian lighter might be intercultural cluelessness, but the two others are just tasteless. Why did you promote them, rather than describing them?

Here is a parallel universe version of my post:

"I saw some vile websites. This is what they looked like. Blah. Blah."

Here is a parallel universe version of your comment:

"You describe sites you said were vile without letting us, in our superior wisdom, decide for ourselves what to make of them. Maybe your reaction is a result of intercultural cluelessness."

I am not promoting these sites when I describe them in terms of "human depravity". I am pointing them out to inform people of their existence. Even to people like you who are more offended by a misreading of my post than the sentiments that would decorate a lighter with the murder of 3000 people.
