Sam Leeson was an hero and another case that proves that bulling is rabbit on teh internets. He was a typical 13-year old boy from Great Britain who liked to listen to emo music and hang out on
Bebo a rope. He was a typical British Emo kid who wore his little sister's jeans, black nail polish, and always tried his best to look unhappy in his MySpace pictures. He spent the last years of his "miserable" life in the suburbs trying to convince the world that emo is not a suicide cult, and depression makes you the cool kid, which ended in epic fail because the internet is serious business and he could not cope with being bullied for his "alternative dress" and his love of the goth-style emo scene online by people he will probably never meet at all. He decided that the best way to say "F you" to them was by becoming an hero.
As of late, he was accidentally the poster child for YouTube's hypocrisy regarding censorship and their Terms of Service, since videos mocking him have been removed, but butthurt emos have been allowed to make all kinds of death threats and generally "cyber-bully" Anons more than Sam Leeson ever likely was. Is this dangerous?
What really happened
According to Sam’s mother, her son was a "huge" music fan with a taste for "emo-style bands like Slipknot, Blink 182 and Good Charlotte" (wat?) as well as rockers The Foo Fighters. He was bullied for being a full blown emo bitch,
dressing like a fag, UPDATE: being a fag (his MySpace lists him as Bi). However, it was not in school where most of the bullying occurred. Sam never learned about the seriousness of the internet, he got several messages over the tubes telling him how stupid he looked and how much his bands suck.
On June 5th 2008, after hanging on bebo for a while, and getting all 'EMO'tional from his schoolmates disapproval, he decided to hang somewhere else, like his own bedroom, and became an hero like Megan Meier and fellow emo Hannah Bond.We all hope he did it for the lulz
Many see this implication of Anon as trying to find a scapegoat, to take the heat off the real bullies, who, as it was reported, went to his school, or lived in the local area.
As with the an hero'ing of Hannah Bond, the parents tried to increase awareness in the press about all things emo, when all that was reported was black person all emo kids are (just read any comment left by an emo kid on YouTube).

Soon after the trolling, an attention whore who was clearly annoyed that Sam was getting all the attention, decided to
fight back interfere against the trollers and started warning moderators to watch out. Swift justice was dealt out on her bebo.
In the questionnaire on her profile she states she wants to become An Heroine (very insensitive of her considering her 'friend' just became one). It would be rude not to try and help her. Topics of conversation such as her freakishly large forehead and her fat, ugly
boyfriend girlfriend will yield the best results (check links).

Post this on memorial sites:
People didn't cry when the V-Tech shooter killed himself. People didn't cry when the Columbine shooters died. Why the fuck should this worthless faggot be any different? He killed himself, he couldn't handle life. If he had continued living, he would have become a druggie, even more of a failure than he was when he died. It's not the bully's fault, no one blamed the people that bullied the school shooters, just because this kid was a pussy and died alone doesn't mean you should blame others. If anyone, blame his mother- she should not have let his weak, 13yr old ass online, he should have been medicated HEAVILY. Finally, stop saying nice stuff about him, you were all dicks to him when he was alive, you ALL ignored him. Stop acting like you were all his personal friends, you make me SICK. And he wasn't religious, so he certainly is NOT an angel in heaven. He is rotting, soon to be forgotten.

LOL British Media
On June 18, 2008, some British newspaper from Sam Leeson's neighborhood published a story entitled "YouTube nuisance posts another video about Sam Leeson, in which they completely fail to get the point, as well as demonstrate a textbook example of impartial news writing. The story includes some chest-thumping about their 1337 hax0r skillz in "tracking down" "David"'s MySpace. They accomplished this goal by using the secret technique that only hackers on steroids can successfully pull off, checking imDavidwhoareyou's YouTube profile page and clicking the link to imDavidwhoeareyou's shitty little MySpace. David is currently drawing his curtains and buying a dog to protect himself from the hackers on steroids at This Is Gloucestershire.

The dad then puts out his two cents; inadvertently giving the 'internet hate machine' exactly what it wants, a reaction.
On June 19, 2008 The Sun Newspaper printed an interview with Sam's mother, and her attempt to stop other emo kids from becoming an heroes. Learning as her son did that the intarwebs is SERIOUS BUSINESS, she fired off this bollocks:
—Sally Leeson in The Sun
Not content to stop the evil doers, she also wants to fly in the face of over 9000 years of civil rights and ban freedom of speech. Seems Mr. Failkips (among other Davids) made a bigger impact that first thought.
