Lachlan, you make a good post and it is fair for you to say that we all look at this differently and that you have a different perspective from some of us.

But you are not allowing us to have our own perspective because you describe our opinions as 'unwarranted' - this means you think they are unjustified, words like that. Ryan has previously described our views as 'inane'.

So you may have your opinions but we may not have ours.

No-one has 'bullied' Ryan into changing the title. People have just expressed their amazement at the inappropriateness of the title. Dave H did ask him to explain the choice but he didn't reply and of course he doesn't have to.

Just to say: I think it is ludicrous and disproportionate beyond belief to make an analogy between 15 million deaths from one of the worst catastrophes known to mankind and the accidental deaths of four people, whoever they are. This opinion is not 'inane' or 'unwarranted' - it's a perfectly valid opinion and it's my opinion. No-one has has to agree with it if they don't want to but it's not 'unwarranted'.
