    personally i would have contacted a moderator via pm about it, but im guessing this threat would have nothing to do with jc so jc wont take a part in the situation, the decision is entirely up to you, but you have now advertised your predicament in public for the member in question to see

    show up to his house with a shot gun, see how tough he is then, watch him run away like the little bitch he is. threats are for pussy's, it is when somone actually acts when you should be worried.

    If it really bothers you, then feel free to take them to the authorities - although i personally wouldnt bother. i doubt they would do anything probably. Internet threats tend to be all talk man, i wouldnt stress unless this guy knows where you live or something, im assuming you actually know this guy in the real world?

    i once got death threads from my (at the time) girlfriends ex boyfriend, as it turns he was a top bloke, just a little drunk and angry as she kinda left him for me.. i later became friends with him...

    after all were not in the USA and you cant go to the corner store and buy a 6 pack of firearms with your smokes :p %99 of death threats are empty

    soooo id just ignore it, imo

    I know you will find this as a surprise that I have had a few over the years. Nearly always it's just somebody blowing off steam and I just ignore them. I have had a few threats to try to bully me into agreeing to something and thos e I take a little more seriously. I've never gone to the police or anything, just tried to avoid going anywhere that I was likely to run into that person (with not many people around). Obliviously I am careful that my comments and body language show that I am not afraid but also not aggressive (try not to make matters worse).

    Does this person know where you live?

    I had to hide in fear for my life for 3 months in Mexico because my wifes ex boyfriend was hunting for me the whole time with a handgun. Unfun and very stressing, I ended up spending almost the whole time I was in her hometown either inside or looking over my shoulder for his Chevy truck. Death threats are not fun and no good for the soul. If you know who it is get him/her banned and then get the feds on him :). Because like I said it's not nice

    lets just say this guy drives a vn bt1 :whistling
    dont really need to worry about running into him, hes a fair distance away. still, after reading greenfoams post, think i might go to cop shop tomorrow, so if anything happens, they know where to look

    Question I'd be asking is why they're so ****ed at you? Only time I've ever copped anything like that is when some bloke thought I was making eyes at his missus. Oh and I was insulting his religion, oh and I may have also called him fat. Anyway, point is I did several somethings to really annoy that person. This sorta **** rarely comes lightly. Maybe find out what the problem is and try to rectify it before going all gung ho?

    i know what the problem is. it involved his, at the time ex-missus. i think theyre back together now or something, i dunno. he started demanding i tell him what went on, i hate when people demand **** from me, so i told him to **** off and ask her. he started going off, etc etc

    I don't blame you - very unfun. Fortunately Australia is not Mexico and getting a hand gun is much more difficult than a trip to K-Mart.

    Ps. I don't think naming the member will help the situation.

    Mate dont stress about it probly just some wanker with to much free time, but if he does know where u live andu think he will act then do something about it. I had huge problems with a guy and his mates which started on msn (well it started in real life but he didnt have his mates then so he didnt do anything) anyways when it went to court i put the rtf files on cd and they came up in court and i won the case and now have a restraining order against him and his mates, but i had print outs of the conversations and they were not interested as anyway can make them up, also wat helped me out was the kid also had printouts of the conversation but deleted wat he said and left his name and insome spots changed half of wat he said but accidently left half of another sentence lol.
    Cheers Tom

    So you got into an argument with some bloke over a woman, it got a bit heated and you're chucking it on the internet and talking about going to the cops? Sounds like a waste of time for all involved.

    i suggest you contact admin on this one.

    normally i would close this, but it could make for interesting discussion about other peoples experiences.. provided no names are mentioned, especially if it is someone from JC

    PM admin before you do anything unless it is a trip to the police. Either way let Darren know what you are doing in case he needs to chase anything up.

    I'd wonder why you would enter into conversation on msn with a tool like that? Block....

    at the time it was a bit of a laugh. i was just curious on other peoples opinions and experiences, since i havent dealt with something like this before, and some of what has been said was helpful.
