Should anything be done about this thread, with all the inflammatory language and anonymous posting (which, IMO, does absolutely nothing positive or constructive for anybody)?

Free speech, baby. Free speech.

It's probably not constructive, but I think it's a pretty good picture of how people deal with an event like this. Some lash out, some say things without thinking.

And it's going to be said anyway. Better to confront it than to try and shut it down.

The person who posted this thread is a troll - this is one of the cleverer trolls he has perpetrated - asking people not to comment on a post - he recently described MeFi as like watching a slow train crash.
