Default umm, who put the bomb in my house?

Ok so my house is pretty ugly but isn't placing a bomb in my walls a bit of an over-reaction?

After spending many hours at the very bottom of my diamond mine I come home from work only to discover a whacking great box of TNT built into one of my unfinished walls! I had just read about minecraft pressure switches and wires and here I was now standing in front of a box of TNT..

I froze, too scared to move. I waited a few moments expecting the bomber to be hiding nearby and would remotely detonate it with a diamond mobile phone any second..

nothing..

So I opened up the chat and mentioned in passing that I found a bomb in my house. Within seconds the TOG bomb disposal team arrived on the scene.

It was then I noticed one of them was wearing a Ronald MacDonald costume. I will be honest and say that a tiny bit of doubt crept into my mind about their intentions at this point..

But I should not have worried as they quickly and professional disabled the bomb and were gone again leaving me to ponder was the bomb some kind of warning?

Did I disturb the bomber in the act and he/she didn't get to set the bomb off?

or was it as I suspect just a critique of the aesthetic value of my house?

Funny story but that's a bit mean!! TNT is pretty easy to accidentally set off. Best if practical jokers limit themselves to slightly less destructive jests.

I should mention my house is unfinished and looks a bit like a bomb has already gone off anyway so no real harm would have been done.

I actually find it rather disturbing and disappointing that we've had mysterious fires, bombs and looting going on....

I am hoping that it is only one misguided individual who is at fault here. And they stop. We may have different ideas on how to play Minecraft, but surely there is enough of the world for such actions to be kept away from those who just want to build.
