Elliot Rodger wasn't the only one who wanted to murder people because he couldn't get laid. There was a whole forum of men like that, calling themselves PUAHaters. Apparently it was closed down after Rodger's rampage, but its members are still out there and will doubtless come together in another forum, each one stoking his hate with fuel fed to him by the others. This is a time-bomb waiting to go off, either in individual bursts or in one big multiple-perp explosion.

Wow ... I never thought that "murder women cause I can't get laid" was really such a popular notion ...

In my mind, I see those self-ntitled, narcissistic morons egging one another on, trying to encourage one another to cherish their hate and then act on it. Social media have a downside, and this is it: people encouraging one another to do self-destructive and/or murderous things. It's like the "pro-ana" websites and chat rooms, which provide a forum for disturbed girls and women to talk one another into literally starving themselves to death. In the case of the "pro-ana" sites, the actions being encouraged are self-destructive; in the case of the site where Elliot Rodger hung out, the actions under consideration are murderous. In both cases, though, you have people all with the same unhealthy preoccupation gathering with others like themselves in a sort of emotional circle-jerk in the hope that group support will give them what it takes for them to carry through on their obsession. At least the "pro-ana" sites don't encourage murder. This one, however, encourages an emotional state that is utterly narcissistic, megalomanic, and murderous. I sincerely hope the cops or the FBI are monitoring that site.
