    Obviously its wrong.

    Do you mean something more specific like Euthanasia, Abortion or killing in warfare?

    Or do you mean the death penalty? Which I think is always wrong and would never want reintroduced here.

    It's okay, as long as they're short. People under 5'6 don't have rights, you see.

    No it's not 'wrong' to kill people - for me there are no ultimate moral rights and wrongs, nature is 'the daddy'.

    That's not to say that a shared moral culture doesn't make for easier social exchange. Just that if anyone does piss us off it's OK to kill 'em.

    No to someone like yourself who just needs to vent a little frustration. However, if killing is being done by the authorities in order to balance out justice, then i'm all for it.

    To ask "is killing wrong?" cannot be answered with a "yes" or "no", the different types of killing will get completely different responses.

    Killing is killing, since you advocate some forms of it your answer has to be no.

    The question is a downright moronic one. Obviously it depends on a range of circumstances... you can't simplify it like that.

    Do you mean, is it EVER right, maybe?

    If you don't understand the question don't take part in the thread.

    It's really really simple. If you think killing someone is ok, justified, good (use whatever word you want) then the answer is "no". Just because it might depend on who that person is doesn't change your overall answer, a humans a human apparently.

    If you make unreasonable questions that no-one will understand, don't post threads.

    Or maybe I could kill you, because what's right in wartime (by your logic, if the answer is "no"), is right for you just the same. What may be right for terrorists, by your logic, is right for you as well: "a human's a human". Yet if we answer "yes", then killing is never right? There is no blanket answer, and for that reason the question is not just a pointless one, but an absurd one.
