don't get it.
he's in his legal right to point out to everyone that
a) someone posted under a specific account a specific threat.
b) everyone is everyone.

How extreme his actions are might be perceived as malicious, then the law would step in.

the action of the employer, schools and ... are those parties actions. Which could spell more trouble for both sides.

It's a real tough question for me, I've stood my ground on my beliefs more than once and paid the pipers tune. And I've been in this guys shoes 2 times in my life. Both times I followed legal protocol and effectively destroyed the other side. both times I've lost friendships too. with that said, I've taught my daughters the value of your actions and words.

I am proud that they have decent manners and behaviors and some respect for others. Who knows maybe one day they will be great coders, scientist or speakers. and will fight with other based on facts with principles

You asked :
"Should these guys have their lives ruined over this?"
That's a very fair question.
and I've sat here for 20 minutes wondering if this was my daughter, what would I do.

Resolution, Justification ...
I grew up having to suffer from being stupid and speaking without thinking, that weight
I still live with and forces me to think before speaking.
While I don't like this type, IE: "internet justice", it just might be the only solution in this
day and age. Before the internet, you just moved out town and started clean.

I've also read that some of these kids used a sexual type attack. That makes them
fair game for using all the resources at ones disposal to stop them in any way.
It does not matter if they are joking, kidding or fooling around.

Gosh I people were this tough when they speak about science and the way it's taught

Sorry I've re-posted this because it's making me an AC.

Lately I've been getting hit with well crafted emails that would get most people.
so I wrote a simple step by step for basic security for the average person.

I kept in mind that most people don't have spare cash, so I choose freeware
and I've included the above product into the set up.

What I have enjoyed is most people have sent me emails saying thanks.

What I would like, if someone knows other products that could be used,
for the average layperson.

While it's not much, here is what I wrote.

What's gouda worth .... that's a good question so let's run some quick math just to see what it might be worth. I'll use a name that i owned for a while.
first, it's a solid fun name, I happen also to have a fun and solid domain name
that's 48000 visitors for year, of which I got about 9000 visitors to click google paid about 650.00
that level has been consistent for years.
so 650 x 10 = low end is about 6500
I get offers all the time, best do far is about 18,000.00
gouda is much more fun sounding so it's got to be worth more
I think it's fair to say that it's an easy 10,000

Your outlook is correct. good example if how the FAA is reaching outside of "rights" is. I have a london based firm, I launch from russia, and products produced in space are imported via south american landing zone. Really the FAA has some rights???

So some US corp starts mining on my moon dirt claim, Heavy Impact rail gun slug solves that issue since Colt has not produced a space pistol yet. ( if i'm mining, a 1 ton slug sent via the launcher should do the job, aiming might be difficult.

You are correct. most people have never really faced a real threat, and walking into a house where a "person with perceived hostile intent" is just about as insane as it can be.

if you did not grow up around violence, you might not understand what that cop is thinking, but I bet he's crapping in his pant's when he's got to use the foot instead of knock. like everyone, he just wants his shift to end and go home.
