Please either remove the affore mentioned instructable or modify it to include the words in VERY LARGE TYPE that this application will in no way provide ANY protection in Any situation what so-ever!!!!!!!! This is the first instructable I have seen that has the potential to cause severe bodily injury to anyone!!!!! Chainmail armor MUST be constucted of steel or iron to provide ANY protection at all!!! Please! Please Tell Your veiwers of this GROSS error!!! Thank You!! Roy Smith.

Firstly, that comment should have been made on the project itself. Secondly, I don't recall seeing any claims that it would protect you against anything. Thirdly, anybody who is daft enough to think that paper-thin aluminium is proof against anything more serious that a custard pie will already have been banned from playing with dangerous sharp things. Like pencils.

Not really since I don't know what ICT is. However, the ironic part is I don't use much paint is my art class.(3D sculpture and design)

Do you not think the person created a user account just to see who'd react to this post? L

The account has existed since the end of March - five months to the day before the maille was published.

But he is being very specific that he is talking about one project. Since there is a frequent pop-maille project banner, I'm assuming he means that one.

He apparently never read a Knex gun instructable, or cooking instructable.

The exclamation point count is a sure sign of not-getting-it-ness (not merely the topic at hand, but much more generally :-/ ).

According to Pratchett, the use of five simultaneous exclamation points is a sure sign of madness.

I felt compelled by some strange urge, also that urge seems to like more then 5 simultaneous exclamation points.

I haven't reconciled this being the first thing Mr Smith has posted with anything. Perhaps Roy does battle re-enactments "and stuff"? L

This is the first instructable I have seen that has the potential to cause severe bodily injury to anyone!!!!!
Have you ever read a cooking instructable, or Knex one? Or almost any instructable involving fire, sharp objects and projectiles?

Yeah I know. What I was saying is how he said this is the first instructable he read that could cause harm, so I asked if he ever read a Knex gun or cooking instructable. (Projectiles, and sharp edges/fire)

What exactly did you do for this to become so relevant? Oh, and by the way, its not really a gross error, its a thing of common sense, which should be used on ANYTHING seen here anyway.

Absurdity is just really easy to notice and to comment upon. I suspect that most of us got hear by reading the subject line, with no way to know how ridiculous the content was going to be.

Nope. It's fine. It works well, the physics of the shape of the chainmaille mean that it absorbs pressure and impact. It's fine; I've tested it.

That's one of the reasons they stopped making them. They were really heavy, so it needed more fuel.
