For years, news writers have been claiming Adam Lanza created a massive 7 by 4 foot spreadsheet detailing previous killers murders. The article that it  first was mentioned in had massive anti-gamer stereotyping in it, claimed it as a “gamer score sheet”, mentioned a bullshit “code of a gamer” which says it’s preferable to kill  yourself then to be caught, and other nonsense.

 

The police and the state of Connecticut have been massively anti-gaming from the get go, back to the time of Senator Lie-Berman’s BS. It’s no surprise they are using this against gamers, but I still don’t like it. The article stereotypes gamers as murderers, and the police are directly behind the nonsense in that article. Nonsense? Well according to me, this spreadsheet cannot exist.

 

Why?

 

The spreadsheet supposedly is 7 feet by 4 feet, written in a 9 font, and contains 500 murders in the columns. I looked at a spreadsheet made in Open Office (identical to Excel in everything but name) and found out that with a 9 font, 1 inch equaled 5 columns. Multiply that by 12 to get columns in a foot and you get 60. Multiply that by 7 and you get only 420 columns. This spreadsheet is impossible! It cannot fit 500 names in it. Therefore, it can’t be real.

 

It’s BS and the official investigation claims it’s real. The state of Connecticut is using faked evidence to attack games again. And they are stereotyping gamers as murders when only 2 out of 211,000,000 gamers (0% of gamers) have killed people in 2012.  It’s complete BS and it must stop.

 

It’s stupid that Connecticut is doing this. Their Report is a farce. It never mentions why he killed

those people in the school. It only claims he was a gamer and uses that as a stereotype to attack the millions of gamers who haven’t killed anyone. Bullshit like this must be stopped people!
