    I saw someones sig, in which he had translated something like "Death to those who disagree"

    I assume it was meant tongue in cheek... but it started me thinking as to what the best translation would be...

    I thought of:
    quisque dissentiant, caedantur &
    quisque dissentiens occidendi sunt

    It strikes me though that this must have been a common slogan. Is there an idiomatic way of translating it?

    Thanks

    The phrase was posted on a Latin newsgroup today, right?

    Maybe 'death to the disagreeing ones' - Letum dissentaneis?

    Thanks, the sig came from an email list I am on.

    I wasn't sure if these kinds of expressions required a verb, or even had some kind of set formula.
