I meant to share this a long time ago.
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.
Gibbons, of Southwark, south London, admitted unlawful wounding and will be sentenced on 7 November.
Anonymity has its advantages.

Nobody’s truely anonymous. Anyone determined to do harm can track down your IP address and find you.
Have a nice day.

Some of the people you mentioned most certainly deserve a good thumping.

Such is the price that Mr. Jones seems to have paid for indulging in the pervasive cretinism that flourishes in the chatrooms!
Not that I condone the use of bludgeoning as a means by which to settle “inter-chatter” disputation! … though i would support an exemption that would guarentee legal impunity to those who bludgeon nazis and other assorted misanthopes and Jew haters!
I remain …
Very Sincerely yours,
