That seems a bit harsh. Why were the videos "rubbish" and why can't they be posted? Both seemed relevant to the thread to me.
Sorry, but what has the Tokyo troll's posting of the latest in a long line of "if you want to know the real truth about..." clips added to the discussion that has not already been said better by other posters? It's just the usual case of his seizing on a tragedy to start rattling a stick in his conspiracy-filled bucket.
I don't see what Feury's beef is with this either. Just a kneejerk anti-jimbo thing? I wonder if he actually watched the clip.
The presence of the words "the real truth about" in the title means no, I didn't watch the clips. As for reactions, I don't think reactions here get more 'kneejerk' than using speculations about the number of deaths to advance your own agenda while the corpses are still being counted
The guys in the clip are local and know people in the tower apparently and the whole point they're making is that the media need to talk to people who were there.
What has the media being doing for the last week, but
talk to local people?
FWIW, my 'beef' with Jimbo's insensitive postings dates back to the day when he typically unthinkingly dashed off a few lines about how much 'fun' typhoons were. This from someone who lives in Asia and knows the huge damage a typhoon can do. To add insult to injury, his post was made a couple of days after a typhoon that had rampaged its way through the Philippines had blown away the roof of my wife's family's home, seriously injuring her sister as it went.
