    Doesnt matter, terror threat is still a terror threat.
    It has to be investigated, person D could get in trouble, but they should be able to explain their way out of the hole easily enough

    They're trying to help anyone perceived as being 'vulnerable to radicalisation' at the moment rather than criminalising them so it's likely you'll get a referral to Prevent or something, I doubt you're going to end up with a criminal record for a private joke

    the first message was sent to the entire school and my reply was me "hacking" this IP address. I took screenshots from a youtube video. Is the school threatening me by saying they will contact the unis I have applied to?

    The schools only excuse for expelling me was because I made the message accessible to more people. I personally think that is ****ing ******** because for instance taking the news as an example. BBC share terrorist videos or terrorist videos etc on their website and make it accessible for millions of people and they are never charged with terrorism? (yes that is what I have apparently done...)

    How exactly is person D supposed to get in trouble? They simply messaged the person back and sent it to a few more people(which didn't send as the school has to approve mass messages). I've been told that I am basically a terrorist? Great am I the only one that doesn't see any logic behind this...

    you were permanently excluded? That surprises me, the school I worked in this sort of thing would be taken very seriously because it is very serious, it isn't something to joke about and while I doubt a 16 year old having a laugh would get in serious trouble, you need to be aware that you could in the future if you do it again, however I would expect a fixed term exclusion or inclusion for a couple of days to be a more reasonable punishment

    They have written a reference to the universities on your behalf, so if they consider it to be relevant information they'd be expected to pass it on from a professional point of view.

    Regardless of whether or not it was a 'joke' it was a monumentally stupid thing to do.

    Maybe you can clear it up for me? Did you send the original email, forward it or did you send more emails after the original? Any way in which you were involved is pretty stupid.

    Don't get anything like that started again.
    It's probably on your criminal record now.

    someone sent it to about 400 people in my school, I'm im year 13 and I though it was due to this that I recieved the email, but it was because I was in another group it got sent to. I then replied with me pretending to hack their location with an email explain that "I got this lads" I then proceded to attempt to send my banterous reply of me "hacking" them to my year. Due to Gmails system they attach the previous email at the bottom of a reply in a smaller font and different colour. It was because of this message being at the bottom that I have been accused of being part of the terrorist threat... The message did not go through as the school system required approval prior to sending emails to an entire year group.

    I have been acused of attepting to pass on a terrorist threat. All I can think of it what about majour new channels that do that every day? what about people that share terrorist videos? what happens to all those people that knowingly do it, and im just sitting here being spoken too from the police as if I sent that terrorist threat. ( it was obviously a joke as it was spelt by a 5 year old spelling every 4 words wrong...)

    Im failing to see what I have done wrong, I understand prehaps I shouldn't have sent my reply to my entire year, but I didnt purposly share any terrorist threat nor did I participate in making or sending the orignal email.

    On my criminal record for unknowingly sharing an email I received?

    I didn't send the terror threat nor did I knowingly forward it to a few more people.

    My point is if you did share a terror threat email, that's why the police were involved.
    That's why it would probably be on the criminal record.
    I am not blaming you for this at all.
    It's just a shame you were dragged into it.

    I attempted to share it yes but then the school system blocked me from it as whole year group emails required approval from the teachers before they are send and it is therefore a pending email.

    It's not going to be shared if the teachers have to give permission for emails.
    You are safe, for now.
