Unhealthy practices

Very many thanks to those who have emailed me with best wishes for the festive season. But it seems that the festive spirit hasn't reached 'k050v4' who sent me this message in the early hours of 26th December:

WRITING ABOUT KOSOVA CAN BE UNHEALTHY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY


Well, k050v4, I can only inform you that sending that message will be 'unhealthy' for you as I will be reporting your attempts at intimidation to the police. Disagreeing with journalists is one thing: threatening them and their family with violence, as is the clear implication of your message, is quite another.

Neil you do the right thing to report this. People have been harmed over a lot less, and keyboard warriors ought to appreciate they are responsible for their comments.

Idle threats, I am sure.

Rather reminds me of this nasty little comments thread.

See how the 'freedom-loving' 'libertarians' fail to so much as raise an eyebrow when one of their number incites violence. Then, the blog owner tries to weasel away from any criticism with a pathetic 'ah but it's all make-believe on the web' excuse.

That said, I hope he's right - that they are simply a bunch of posturing, overgrown schoolchildren - or we really are in trouble: We have, after all, seen what principled, freedom-loving right-wingers end up doing when they're given the chance to 'solve' the left-wing 'problem'.

There is no such thing a an idle threat. A threat is a malicious attempt to intimidate its target whether the implied act be carried out physically or not.

Anyway, rough ride for NATO & €U now when Albania & it´s proxy expects "pay-back" for it´s support in splitting up Yugosavia....

Don't let Kamm and his tiny band of bigot-followers get you down.

You know that you must be winning, if they are starting to send you pathetic "threats" like this.

I was threatened with shooting by an Albanian on the Scotsman online forum. I replied by comparing UK press coverage of the genocidal actions of the KLA under our rule in Kosovo, with WW2 German media refusal to cover Auschwitz. The Scotsman barred me but not him.

On the other hand I never got shot.
