As shooter was 'normal client' 'regular client' of the night club, perhaps it is just an outrage at someone there & the club suffers. A known effect from mental sickness. May not be anything to do with religion or sexuality but just 'they offended me, I will pay back'. The later rants may be self justification, blown up by press etc as presumed reason, actual reason we will really never know.

Comment Re:Somewhat off-topic: embedding video in email (Score 1) 294

Images as "attachments" are acceptable. However, some of us only work in pure text email.
[For many reasons, contractual, security, transmission speeds, government enforced, revenue sensitive]
Connections in many parts of world are sometimes very low. Embedded images in email are a 'favourite '
of one of my work colleagues, and over inter-net fixed wire WAN this is acceptable (speeds controlled).
In non-work situations it has proved to be a method of distribution of 'images' which can disrupt.
I prefer image rich texts to be sent as PDF format attachments.
Personal preferences, I know, but has saved some emergency situations with low speed facility communications.

Common interface. Keeping the email addresses separated but in one client as TBird does is great. I work for 4 companies each with its own email address for me and of course my own company and private emails. TBird keeps all in line. I am a fan. Just like student above, except I have been doing this on M$ and *nix boxes for a long time as I am 6 decades past student days,
