Hey Boob,
I can keep deleting them as fast as you put them up.

Kurt, the problem is that blocking IPs is a futile effort for anyone with a basic knowledge of trolling. We block them but he comes back with a different one every time.

My concern is the threat in the emails, which is sometimes specific to Mr. Shermer and contains threats of explosives or bombs. Hopefully it’s just a prankster hiding behind his computer, and not a mentally ill person intent on harming someone with homemade devices. I would contact the authorities, who can trace his computer easily to his home. Bomb threats are not funny.

The Boob is the same person who threatened P.Z. Myers last year. P.Z. took him seriously and reported him to the Canadian authorities. You should, at the very least, forward the threats to his Internet service provider. Contacting a Canadian legal authority would be a good idea too. He may or may not be dangerous, but his threats need to stop.

He also threatened Massimo Pigliucci. Believe me, people know about this loser, including people at CFI. I’d prefer not to give him more public exposure, though. He’s clearly mentally ill and looking for attention.

Ah, in that case Doug, maybe delete the whole thread. It is probably giving him satisfaction.  LOL

It concerns me as well. I don’t think he reads the threads here, but I will change the title to this one to throw him off, just in case ...

Occam, here’s a heads-up ...

Well, I was having fun getting rid of six of them as fast as they went up.  And it’s much less work to delete than to post.  LOL

May I suggest the title, “Reading This Post Nullifies Tin Foil Hats”  grin

He’s better left unnamed. As Doug said, he is unstable and seeking attention. He has been baned from dozens of forums. Check your PM folder.

Hmmm, he is taking a break, at least for tonight, unless he has been in and deleted more quickly than usual!
