ye alright you'll be telling us that they're coming across as serial killers next
How dare you justify something as serious as rape or even a rape joke? Even if it is a joke, it is a dangerous statement to make. And you mock that as well? No joke, or threat, or song for all I care should include rape statements or abuse stataments towards women and minorities. You seem to share the same mindset with them.

I do not care what you think of me. What is of outmost concern is yor behaviour towards other people and making dangerous statements like this one. How dare you justify rape? Even if somsone makes rape jokes on a constant basis this is a result of a hidden desire or of previous actions.Read some psychology. Again, I wonder if your mother is proud of you reading comments like this one. You should not be allowed on this forum. And mocking somsone because they are trying to inform this community that rape is no joke is beyond me. You've been reported.

I’m gonna leave an Update here for those interested.
The students decided not to return out of their own FREE WILL.
Unfortunately it means Wariwick didn’t do anything to change their initial decision which has angered many students, lecturers and even whole departments. It seems like Warwick has dug it’s own grave.

If I had a cent for every time you reported me, I'd have paid off my country's national debt

But yeah, your obsession with me is kinda weird. You'd be better off spending your time studying or doing something that will actually increase your chances of getting into Oxford. Guess that I must have struck a nerve somewhere along the line.

He actually did report the post as well. At least he's honest.

You’re confusing sexually frustrated dweebs making edgy comments with actual rapists.

Actual rape is no joke, but folks who overreact to every level of threat run the real risk of diluting the most dangerous one. Something which is happening. Over my life, I’ve seen rape go from a real taboo subject which was was discussed in hushed whispers to the subject of memes from one side of the population to another.

Isn’t that the problem. People should be able to have private conversations. I bet everybody here has said something in a private chat that they’d rather not be heard in public.
I have - I've ****ged off half my friends and all my family

As long as a conversation stays private then there aren't going to be consequences but once it becomes public (and in the age of electronic social-media communications this is always a possibility) then content of this kind cannot just be ignored, especially not by the relevant university which has a duty of care to consider as well as its rules and its public standing. Obviously it depends on the content - in this case there was lengthy discussion about raping named students.

No they are jokes.Not very high brow ones but still jokes.Being offensive is not yet a crime.Extensive experience of rape? Listen to yourself.The police found no crime was committed.All that has happened here is that some immature boys have posted offensive jokes on a chat.They didn't threaten anyone.They didn't rape anyone.They had no intention of raping anyone.I've heard worse jokes about Madeline McCann.Is everyone who jokes about that now a potential child abductor? You are being ridiculous.Its ok to joke about offensive things.
The police and the uni clearly agreed as they were coming back until Twitter outrage erupted.
Being grossly offensive via means of internet messaging, broadcasting, post, publishing or telephone calls are crimes.
But it is for the police, cps and courts to enforce the law.
I don't agree with warwick disciplining those vile jerks with suspensions.

But I'm not a warwick student and didn't agree with warwick's decision to permit the leader of britain first to visit their premises for an event organised by a campus student society.

Well maybe it shouldn't be.A part of free speech is freedom to offend.If you are not free to offend then you are limited in your speech and hence do not have free speech.I don't know about you but I'd like to not live in a police state which police's everyone's speech.That includes not no- platforming controversial speakers.And if as you say it is a crime then why was nobody charged? Clearly they couldn't find anything to charge them over that's why the uni dealt with it.

I'm sure that had nothing to do with the 60,000 people signing a petition against them.

In law, a clear distinction is made between verbal speech and written communication (articles, posted letters, electronic messaging, social media posts).
Private speech and verbal comments made before an audience/broadcasted over the television or internet are also treated differently.
Freedom of verbal speech is subject to legal restrictions as regards criminal acts/conspiracy, slander and acts of harassment.

I'm not a fan of no platforming, although I am not a free speech fundamentalist like Milo Yiannopoulos
There is a limit to most things and a clear line that can't be overstepped without leading to crime, anarchy or the worst type of antisocial antics.
I disagree with providing the oxygen of free publicity to the most toxic of individuals whilst everyone else spends a fortune of pr, paying convicted criminals to gloat or providing them with an opportunity to teach others how to attempt their criminality.
I don't work for the police or cps and have no idea why law enforcement didn't bring charges against the warwick students.

The CPS apply a two-part test when making a decision to prosecute which in simple terms is a) is there a reasonable chance of a conviction and b) is it in the public interest to pursue a conviction. It follows that what might easily be a 'crime' isn't automatically acted on. Given that there was a documented discussion in which raping named students was being promoted by the participants I'm sure technically this could have made it to court on some charge or other.

Amongst the participants in the discussion 'we should', 'you should' or whatever. It easily fits the description of 'incitement'.

Was this where he discussed raping 100 women in one night? Hardly realistic even for an army of men.Context is everything.When I say I'm going to kill my brother.It doesn't mean I'm actually making a threat on his life.It means he's pissed me off.I don't think anyone would seriously argue this guy was actually planning to rape anyone.

Specific female students were identified in the discussion as potential targets for rape, that fact isn't going away. You shouldn't say "I'm going to kill X" about any X if you're not confident that they wouldn't interpret it literally or be offended. Why? Because when you say something that is a face-value threat then it might just be received as a face-value threat. Besides what kind of person talks about raping their relatives or friends, let alone strangers? Have you ever said you're going to rape your brother? Maybe you have but that's on you. Women, who are routinely vulnerable to being raped by men, can't be so dismissive of 'banter' about rape as the men who indulged in it, maybe you don't understand that.
