The destructive behavior of the person sending this crap is typical of cyber cowards. They cover their asses while causing discord, tucked safely away with their acne ointment, bloated sense of self, multiple routers, and mastabatory tools. The goal is to cause harm by sewing discord, and some of them revel in angst such as what I'm expressing. I know that even posting here feeds their sickness, their bloated egos, their need to harm.
There is another side, however, that of exposing them. If I were Scrapped Media, I'd be furious about these blackmail letters. SM is cyber literate, so I suspect they may know who began this nonsense. Maybe it was a former employee or some competitor or a kid who has too little to do. I have to say, this is the first time I got an extortion hack threat, but as for bomb threats, death threats, etc., that's all part of the cyber coward game. Under recent laws, some of this borders on terroristic threats, but many of those laws are hard to agree with.
When I was a young man, I was a lot of very bad things, but my perfidy was done in person, up close and personal so to speak. By my early 20s I left that life behind. Now we have a whole range of thumb twiddling geeks who revel in being "bad" under wraps. They are bullies by nature, but their only prowess is putting knowledge to evil ends. Most of them would not want anything to do with a physical confrontation, even with a ten-year-old Girl Scout.
The Internet is a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it allows me to share hundreds of articles and books with anyone who wants them--and to do it for no cost. It also allowed me to run a retail business for eight years that at one time generated $1,000 per day in gross sales. But it has created a whole class of people who seek great pleasure in causing harm.
The only thing cure for this ill is to expose the people who are doing it to public light--the thing they most fear. 99.99% of us don't have a clue about how to do that, but perhaps someone will in this case. I honestly would love to show up at this guy's door...just to put a face to one of his many victims. If I could get the guy busted, that would be my idea of justice. Well, we can always hope.
