    Eleckra and Karen thank you so much for your concern. This was very upsetting to me because honestly I have never had threats of violence made to me. Never. Brian, I suddenly understand your work is important. I am an adult and I was afraid. How do children deal with this? To update you, I have referred this matter to my son who assures me that this is one person with pretend names and not multiple as I had initially feared. The site is checking this for us. We went to the station today and they put it on file. Apparently we can all be tracked by a unique code on our computer so no threats are really anonymous. This means that if the person is ever arrested this can be used as evidence of propensity to harm others. I will be limiting my internet time but my son will now track this matter with site administrators. Thank you once again for your concern Elektra, Karen and Brian! To my would-be tormentor, you finally found a "victim" who stands up to bullies!!I hope you find many others.

    @Ginnie: Have the managers contacted you? You should also notify the police, if this person can hack a website they can find your details and find you. Am not trying to scare you but some people are very unstable.

    Ginnie have you been assisted? I am not a lawyer but as an educator I know alot about cyber bullying and can put you in touch with people to help you. Yes it is a police matter if there is threat of violence. You can also mandate the site to release their IP addresses so you can pursue damages for distress. Please Email me on seboldbrian6327@gmail.com and I will help best I can. To the person who would put fear in a woman over a news story shame on you! Also I have an excellent firewall and virus guard so I'm not worried that you will try to harass me by email!

    Could the moderator please contact me. I have been threatened here and would like to know where to complain. Please email me directly on the address I have put. Are there any lawyers here? Can I file a police complaint for an online threat?
