    It was a reaction to a specific threat and no real inconvenience for anyone.

    It was enough of one for them to rescind the order.

    Look, dude, slamming a tampon up there as a preventative measure is not exactly undue inconvenience.

    There was a security reaction to a specific threat and there was no real problems involved... until hysterical people tried to make it into something else.

    No, the authorities were told they had plans. If we're talking about a violent attack that is one thing, I approve of preemptive measures there. I even approve of preemptive measures against the use of biological waste or property damage.

    This is nowhere near the same thing, and the appropriate response was to wait until people actually broke the law and then punish them. This way punishes everyone with a presumption of guilt.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    So you accuse me of abandoning my points, and when I point how I've argued each one with anyone who felt like picking them up, this is the best you can do? Not, "Oops, I guess I was wrong?" Whatever.

    Since the rumor or tip was about the throwing of used tampons, by your logic shouldn't the authorities have required women to extract any inserted tampons and surrender them?

    I was not wrong. Your "points", outlined above, are BS and have been dispensed with. Continue crying about guns if you must, but that is as ridiculous as your previous "points".

    If they let guns in, then there can be no security or disturbance concerns regardless of direct threats!!11!!

    :rolleyes

    If people don't feel like discussing them, that's their choice. I've argued them every time someone took issue with them. You were wrong.
