    Web-rage!

    You heard of road rage, now get ready for web-rage.

    The BBC resports about Britain's first "web-rage" attack.

    "A man drove seventy miles to assault his victim with a pick-axe handle after they exchanged insults in a Yahoo! chat room. From the article Det Cons Christopher Creagh, of the Metropolitan Police, said: "This is the first instance of a web-rage attack." Det Sgt Jean-Marc Bazzoni, of Essex Police, added the case demonstrates the importance of protecting one's identity on the internet. "Mr Jones had posted pictures of his family on the web and had chatted to Gibbons on an audio link," he said. "It demonstrates how easily other users can put two and two together and also shows how children could also find themselves in danger."

    Wow!

    I should probably go back to that other forum and apologize to "Cyclops."
