Twitter Joke Trial: I do not consider @pauljchambers tweet to be "obviously menacing"

As reported in The Guardian's article "Twitter joke trial: Paul Chambers loses appeal against conviction" of November 11th 2010, Judge Jacqueline Davies stated that Paul Chambers tweet: "Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!" was "menacing in its content and obviously so. It could not be more clear. Any ordinary person reading this would see it in that way and be alarmed." We the undersigned, as ordinary people, do not see it in that way and are not alarmed. Because the Judge's statement is factually incorrect, we believe the conviction should be overturned.
