Skeptical Science: "Ding dong, the witch is dead"

In March of 2012, the climate alarmist website Skeptical Science had their forums "hacked" and the contents posted online. In these it is revealed their lack of humanity for the death of a political adversary. In a forum thread titled, "Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart is dead at 43" frequent Skeptical Science contributors and moderators posted insensitive and juvenile comments,
"[H]e was a particularly destructive individual, almost entirely without morals. He was an "ends justifies the means" type and his sole purpose was to try to destroy everything liberal regardless of what he had to do to achieve this. He was the one who made the cavallier comment that "We have all the guns and we outnumber liberals." He's the kind of guy that would laugh if someone acted upon such a suggestion." - Rob Honeycutt [Skeptical Science], March 2, 2012
"Breitbart ...was a horrible human being" - Daniel Bailey [Skeptical Science], March 2, 2012
"Maybe he got a call from his mom saying 'the Bank of America is going bankrupt', and died of shock for this jest." - Otto Lehikoinen [Skeptical Science], March 2, 2012
"Ding dong, the witch is dead..." - John Hartz [Skeptical Science], March 2, 2012
R.I.P. Andrew Breitbart and my condolences to his family.

Update: Due to the unbelievable nature of these quotes, I was asked to provide evidence that these were made. So I am providing a selected screen shot of one of the forum posts. Since John Cook or anyone representing Skeptical Science has not denied these comments were made I see no reason to reveal more than is necessary,
