What can be done if someone threatens your life on an internet board. Hun or anyone with legalese advise, would be appreciated. And yes it was liberal who threatened to hire someone to kill me. Who do you report it to? What steps need to be done.

thanks guys..and as always, locked and loaded.

This happened to a friend of mine. Contact local police internet crimes division (yes it really exists) If a death threat was actually made, they will sopena the logs of the board, then contact internet crimes in resident city of threat maker. Typically will be charged with Terrositic Threat.

It just happened on another board, the guy snapped. He has been a volatile poster for some time, he actually threatened to have someone kill me. Not once but twice. I had enough of it. Need advice.

I am fairly certain that the FHP has an internet crimes division. Most local (smaller PDs) do not have such a div unless you live in a larger metro area.

Its not like the cops will actually protect from harm but they can put his ass in jail for awhile. Of course, he comes out in a very short span and is even madder.
I assume you're armed and good to go.

Well as someone who posts his real name and company name on every post he makes, I just tell them to "BRING IT, PLEASE".

About a dozens times since I've been on the net.

No one has taken me up on it yet.

I'd call the authorities simply to stick it to them as much as possible, but frankly don't think much about that sort of threat.

First of all, everyone's a fuckin' tough guy on the internet, this site has shown that as much as any. Just talkin' the truth. When push comes to shove, 99.9% would take things for what they are, which is potentially quite dangerous to seek someone out that just might blow your fuckin' head off if you threaten them. Just not worth it.

Second, how the hell would they even find you? You're a screen name on a message board...the end. Not really a treasure trove of personal info.

Still, rather annoying to think of some jerk-off threatening your life from the comfort of their home, and thinking they can get away with it. It's more a matter of principle than safety, but still well worth trying to stick it to'em all the same.
