"Hey, let's kill all the white/black/Jewish people in x town" should be punished, however.

Unless it's part of a rap or metal song and therefore has redeeming artistic value

EDIT:
Same thing for trying to convince people to kill themselves

Huh also found out the 5 stages of grief are not set in stone.

Apparently the person who originally came up with them regrets ever doing so. Because what she went out to do was list 5 common experiences she observed her patients having to normalize how people feel. Which is actually quite noble.

Yet because of the way the popular consciousness works many people took it as the 5 stages of grief everyone must go through.

I have a lost of sympathy for the scientist. She had good intention but people bastardized it.

The noun form would be Scheißepost and the verb root would be scheißebuch, I believe. I'm sure one of our resident Germans (probably Helgo) knows, though.
Well, we have 'posting' as an anglicism, so it would be 'scheißposten', not to be confused with 'Scheißposten', which would be a shitty guard post. Where you  got Scheißebuch - shit book - from is beyond me though.

That would be the verb form of book (e: as in to record), which I think is a thing. I was trying to avoid the post/sentry post thing.

Then you should have posted the infinitive: Scheißebuchen (not to be confused with beeches made of shit). Buchen is like the English booking: You book a ticket, a table at a restaurant, etc etc.

Ah, I see. Idle curiosity, how does that interact with plural nouns?

And your green eyes flash with the flames of a thousand repressed memories. You have a chest with three locks, that you made, and yet you can not open it. You save and destroy, and where you walk wonder and disaster are equally sown. You have counselled kings, lain with the Fey Felurian, and conquered the hearts and minds of the people. Your Alar is the sea in storm, and you called down lightning against the Chandrian. Fey friend, demon maker, sorcerer. And yet, you can no longer defeat hired toughs when they trespass in your domain.

At least collateral damage doesn't sound like some retarded politician attempting to pander to the electorate.
I'm pretty sure collateral damage is the I'm-not-looking-you-in-the-eye way of saying civilian casualties.

Precisely. 3,000 dead is a tragedy, 210,000 dead is collateral damage.  ::)

And/or (vital) infrastructure damage, yes. It can be stretched to other uses, though, and is fairly often. Innocents for war on drugs, poor for tax reforms, environment for economy, etc., etc., etc. Oddly enough, of the ones OW was responding to, it's pretty much the only phrase "retarded politicians" actually use when they're attempting to pander to the electorate.
