I normally have a policy of not allowing JMBzine.com readers to post threatening messages in the comments (which I started after a few overly excited folks decided to post threats during the Sally Kern controversy), but I now have a reader who is directing threats at me.

I think likely the threats are just a crazy chickenhawk wannabe-badass shooting off his or her mouth, but all the same this person shouldn’t be posting this crap.

Here is the post with the comments in question

Here is the text of the comment with threat in it (#17)…

p.s. ill be coming for you so watch your back right below the neck in the carotid artery

As for the identity of the commenter, the emails provided are obviously bogus, but i do have the IP # of the person. Commnents #16, 17, 18 & 19 were all posted by…

between 7:14 and 7:21 p.m. today.

According to the whois, this IP number is assigned to Cox Communications, so this is likely posted by a local person. I will be contacting Cox obviously, but thought I would go ahead and post this information publicly as well to hopefully shame the person who hides behind an anonymous handle to post threatening remarks.

Seriously, do you think this will shut me up. If I’m not afraid of the US government, I sure am not afraid of you.
