  1. The internet is full of sick-minded people; just go to any of a dozen messageboard sites and you’ll find people ‘admitting’ to worse than this.
    Internet bravado intending to shock just for amusement I bet.
    If every anonymous admission online was a news story we’d never have anything worthwhile to read!

  2. … is there not some kind of forced disclosure law the police could use?

    “All confessions will be published regardless of entertainment value, moral fibre, political correctness or otherwise.”

    Why? Whats its purpose? I could understand a light hearted confessions page for entertainment purposes, but if its something else, then you need to decide what its purpose is. You cant give people a huge public forum to air their hate speech. Unless thats its purpose(?) And if it is, then that is dumb and it should be taken down.

    “I do not condone or support anything that is posted, I just run the page.”

    No, Im sorry, thats bullshit. You cant provide the stage and then disassociate yourself from the crap that goes on on it.
    This guy might feel supported and egged on and the runner of this page has played a part in future attacks by this nut job

  4. I think where there maybe proof of real crime, anonymity should not be gaurenteed. And please pink move the report button away from the thumbs up button. I am forever reporting people I actually agree with, i use a tablet and a fat finger.

  5. Another glaring example of how the low. social network diversity is sinking.

    “The goal of CC is to provide a platform for people from Canberra to get anything off their mind that they might not feel comfortable telling anybody else, whilst remaining totally anonymous.”.

    In other words means…
    “The goal of CC is to provide a platform for people from Canberra to get anything off their mind TO BOAST OF CRIMES that they might not feel comfortable telling anybody else WITHOUT FEAR OF REPERCUSSION OR PROSECUTION assurances are given that all post remain anonymous.

    I wonder how the administrator would feel about his site if he later learned the confession/taunt by one of his posters was ultimately responsible for feeding the ego of a mass murderer?

  6. One of these days, a “victim” of this guys is going to fight back, or expect an attack and it isn’t going to be pretty for him. I hate to say it, but people like this man make me nearly physically sick and I can’t wait to this coward bought to justice, whether it’s in a prison cell, or delivered by a gay man’s fist straight to his nose followed by a swift uppercut to the jaw.

    I doubt the poster is telling the truth, but whether or not he is, it is a form of terrorism intended to cause fear to patrons of the club, and perhaps to gay people in general. In no way is it a “confession”.

    My own country is a complete embarrassing joke still allowing gay bashing, bigotry, racism of aborigines of and still banning gay marriage!

    Australia needs to pass two laws one that will ban hate crimes on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity and pass legislation on allowing both national (and recognise international) same sex marriages.

    But then again that will take another 20 years perhaps!?

  9. A woman should pretend to be interested in him and then beat him up. See how he likes it.

  10. “I do not condone or support anything that is posted, I just run the page.”

    WHAT A COP OUT!! by the BRAINDEAD IDIOT who is running this PATHETIC PAGE!!
