Is it a crime, and/or a violation of Fluthers terms of service to wish death upon someone?

Also does it encourage hate?

At the bottom of your screen, in the red/orange block, on the right, are Terms and Conditions, and Guidelines. Those should cover it. If they don’t, contact the Mods.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to wish death upon anyone. That will poison your own spirit more than it will actually affect the other person.

Never a good idea to wish death upon someone. It’s bad juju.

Check with the mods. You can’t call the person out in public – against the rules to mention names unless the person is in the thread. We can’t do anything.

If the person you wished death upon was Putin, I wouldn’t have a problem with it…

I’m not getting what the subtext – or even the text – of this question is about.

To another jelly, yes.
To a celebrity or public figure, I don’t belive so as we’ve had so many Trump posts.

Does it encourage hate? In my opinion, yes.
Like @Hawaii_Jake said, it only poisons yourself to give anyone the power to make you hate them.

A member of my family had hate and anger all her life, from molestation and abuse. Though she loved all of dearly, we took on that hate for her, to our detriment. I’m not saying the hate was not justified, but it spills over into your best relationships, too.

@RedDeerGuy1 A friend explained the subtext to me.

To an person on Fluther, yes. To other people who are not on Fluther, no. But I think wishing death on anyone no matter the political party or fame should be illegal on Fluther. Now you can say you don’t like someone but not with death on them. Just not right.

To another member I’m sure it would be. But someone else probably not. But I would hope you don’t do something like that. It is not good for you to feel that way about another person. No one is worth putting yourself through that agony, it is best to forgive them and move on with your life. I know that is what I had to do in order to move on with mine.

I assumed that since the OP mentioned fluther specifically, that either a jelly was wishing death upon the OP or the OP was wanting to wish death on a jelly – both having to do with fluther. But now that I think about it, they may want to write about wishing death upon someone who’s not necessarily on fluther. ¯\(ツ)/¯ Who knows.

[mod says] Wishing death on another jelly would count as a personal attack and, if serious enough, could be grounds for a suspension or a permanent ban. We’ve banned people for threats of bodily harm in the past.

Declaring you’d like a public figure to die is less of an issue, as long as it’s clear there’s no intent of acting out the fantasy. Graphic descriptions of anyone’s death would be removed. We also remove any posts encouraging illegal activities.

I hope you all die…
…a peaceful death surrounded by loved ones after living a full and vibrant life.

@raum I hope that is the case for us all.
