NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If someone you know is shaking uncontrollably and foaming at the mouth, don’t blame one big ass note.

BigAssMessage.com, where users can send bright, flashing messages to people online, has been flooded with accusations from media outlets who claim sending a “BAM” can cause people to suffer epileptic seizures.

However, creator Bjorn Johansson stands by his product and dares anyone to prove a Big-Ass Message has caused a single seizure.

He says, “If it has, I don’t mind giving that person a half-assed apology if it makes him or her feel better.”

Johansson questions whether blinking lights actually cause seizures, and has yet to find definitive proof in all his online research.

In fact, he thinks another Internet phenomenon might be a bigger danger to the masses.

He adds, “Quite frankly, I think all the genitalia on ChatRoulette causes way more seizures than Big Ass Message ever could.”
