    We British

    Next time there is a knock on the door.


    An internet user has been found guilty of what police said was Britain's first "web-rage" attack.

    Paul Gibbons, 47, tracked down John Jones using details obtained online after the pair exchanged insults in an internet chatroom, a court heard.

    He travelled 70 miles to Mr Jones' home in Clacton, Essex, and beat him up with a pickaxe handle in December 2005.

    Think! Who have you offended.

    Would this happen anywhere else?

    This is why I miss living in Britain--the civility. Here, he would have brought a gun.

    Here, his victim might've greeted him w/ a shotgun on the porch.

    Not much good a shotgun would do when take him out from 100m away with my 50-cal first. Probably wouldn't be as satisfying as this though...

    Rather than hiding who I am, I just try to avoid making statements that I may be called upon to defend on the field of honor or my own front porch.

    If you can't see that a man getting out of a car with a bloody pickaxe handle and stalking up your drivewalk is not boding for good things, you need a good beating.

    Oh, I agree there, but I get a lot of exposure from blogging and I try to avoid the "Crazies", if ya know what I mean! I keep my offline life as seperate as possible with very few people knowing enough about ne to find me due to a couple of web stalkers and a lot of "Hate mail" that I get via my public email. It seems that some people can't seem to stand seeing someone make the turnaround I have healthwise. I blog under a pseudonym, precisely forthis reason. I keep my real name concealed, not because I'm a flame warrior, but because I get attacked by them!
