Should The Author of This List be Insulted, Jailed or Tortured?

I know for a fact that different people write different things depending on the motive, inspiration, thematic focus or overall aim of whatever it is that is being written but do you agree with me that some write-ups are simply unacceptable?

Well, this question was born out of a message I recently received and it came in the form of a list.
Before I go on, I must state in clear terms that who I am. My name is Samod Biobaku; known as Simply SAMAD in the social median entertainment, job consultancy and other related circles and I have never had any bias for or against the product that forms the heart of this piece.

Kindly read and tell me what you think we should do to the author of this list (if we ever had the opportunity to find/capture him/her).

Read below:
