@60: I'll rephrase for him. They're harmless as long as you don't fuck around with them like an immature child. It's not like they go "hunting for human children to kill." They only lash out when hungry or threatened, and since "human" isn't a norm on any spider's diet, there's only one option left.
I wonder how you manage to break a screen by simply hitting it once... I once hit an LCD screen trying to kill a fly, it fell off the table. Apart from a crack in the casing, it worked fine (the crack wasn't even that big).
I'll never understand why so many people seem to be offended by the mere existence of other creatures. It's really not hard to capture a spider in a container and toss it outside. They're even kind of cool if you can resist the urge to squish everything and instead take a minute to look at one.
#24 speaks the truth: I'm more afraid of mozzies than I am of spiders (even our lovely toxic ones). We have giant mozzies - Hexham Greys and they carry Ross River virus and all sorts of lovely viruses, not to mention hurting lots when they jab you :( Kill the mozzies, save the spiders.
