+ - Email Threats Less Crazy than Snail Mail-> 2

Submitted by SoyChemist
SoyChemist (1015349) writes "Psychologists at the University of Nebraska have read 300 threatening letters and 99 angry emails to members of congress. They concluded that the authors of the electronic messages show less signs of serious mental illness, but they are more profane and disorganized. The report was published in the September issue [subscription] of the Journal of Forensic Sciences."

Email Threats Less Crazy than Snail Mail

Comments Filter:
  • Anyone can get pissed off and drop some verbal sewage into an email and send it before they calm down. Once you filter out the vented spleens, I wonder how things balance out.
  • Did anyone do a sampling of the target audience? In other words, were the congressional targets any crazier than their peers?
