So I got this email from a this guy named Stephen Braddy who is a new poster here on AR15.com. On his first post he attempted to solicit advice about illegal modifications to an AR. He was promptly chastised by several posters. Since I know, as do you, that this place is frequently trolled by various LE agencies, and that LEOs are not above entrapment, I said his post "smelled like pork", no offense meant to our decent minded LEO bretheren here. Today I got an email from this young man who, in that fascinatingly sharp literate debate style honed by our modern educational system, called me a "Fucking idiot." Pretty verbose little guy, huh? Anyway, he was kind enough to include his email, his business phone number, and his cell phone number, so I called. Here is the conversation:

JH-Hi. Is this Stephen Braddy?
SB-Yeah. Who is this.
JH-Steve! Great to hear your voice! Tell me, are you in the CT or NY state area?
SB-Uhhh, who did you say you were?
JH-This is Jeff Hasner. Are you in the CT or NY state area?
SB-Why do you want to know that?
JH-Well I just thought I would come down and see you face to face.
SB-Uhh, why do you want to do that? Who are you? Where do I know you from?
JH- Come on Steve! You know me! Jeff Hasner! Are you in the the CT or NY area? I would love to come see you.
SB-Are you the guy I sent an email to from AR15.com?
JH-Of course not. Where are you?
SB-I don't want to tell you.
JH-Ah Steve, tut tut. You know what Steve? In the middle ages archers were considered cowards. Did you know that?
SB- (sounding a little nervous) Uhh, no.
JH-Ya know why? Because they hid in the back and let the guys with balls up front do all the real fighting. We have become a nation of archers Steve. Don't hide behind your computer, tell me where you are so we can have a face to face.
JH-Oh well.
So I hung up.

Here is the info he thoughtfully provided to me:

So if you're being harrassed by some guy with his company email acct, just email his company's admin about it.

I thought about that, but it just isn't my style. I am deep down not at all that civilized. Besides, that sort of goes back to that whole archer thing.

That is awesome.  Way to go!  I cant count the number of times I would like to have done that.

408 is a California area code.  South Bay, ie, south of San Francisco.  San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, etc.  He was probably a bit confused by your question on his location.

(408) is San Jose, CA.

I checked both these numbers on 5551212.com and neither is listed.

Anyone else try to call these numbers?

Jim Beam is right. I used to live in San Jose and work at 3Com....408 area code.

Agile is in Silicon Valley.

I think their stock is in the dumpster...perhaps he was taking out his frustrations with the Silicon Valley home pricing on you!

Cell Phones cost a bit more money than land lines.  So, if you want to screw with someone, call there cell repeatedly at odd times (not continuously).  better yet, list it as a Hot (976-ish) number for folks to call.  
Of course, that's only for anti folks, not silly pro folks.  [:)]

You really should take that personal info off.

Everything else is pretty funny.

If he didn't want his personal info displayed he wouldn't have sent it to me.

Note to self: [b]Do not[/b] piss poikilotrm off.
