Today's demented rage...

...comes courtesy of YouTube user Mujah2009. I like to think the last thing s/he tried to write (before trying to find out how to report me to YouTube) was "I will sue you".

This is all because I suggested that Muhammad started the religion of Islam, of course.

I love the idea of someone who is SO devout not being able to spell 'prophet'.

Of course, the phrase "we wont let u live for too long" is a death threat, can be reported under YouTube's harrassment rules, and you can get Mujah2009's account pulled.

You should do it because the internet is self-policing and it's important that the crazies are regulated.

If only there was a guide on how to report people.... oh look, there's a link on Mujah2009's page! Thanks, Mujah2009!

YouTube tends not to bother with vague, juvenile rants like this. You have no idea how many immature teenagers are out there trying to report other immature teens "cuz he calld me a retard and all i sed wuz his mom wuz a hore wtf". Besides, they'd just start harrassing you with sock puppets. It's only worth taking action if there's a credible threat of actual physical violence, and then you're better off going to the police.

If there is an afterlife, and I get to meet God, I'm going to ask for a ringside seat to watch all those martyrs arriving in their heaven for their 72 virgins, only to discover that, due to a hopelessly optimistic mistranslation, what they're really getting is a bunch of 72 grapes.

I don't know how you have the patience to spend so much time on the YouTube forums helping people out, rew.

I quite like getting the odd death threat from crazies anyway. Especially when they also mail me to ask where I live, lulz.

Seems a tad upset.

Hey! It might be Bin Laden in disguise. No wonder the Yanks can't find him he's hiding on Youtube!!

rewboss said...

They seriously ask you where you live? That would brighten my day. Nearest I've ever got to a death is "Why don't you just fuck off and die, you hippie?"

For what it's worth...I have received e-mail death threats.

I currently DJ on (just go there and click 'Listen' downloading shite)

Prior to this I ran The Drunk Punk Show on Destiny Internet Pirate Radio.

A Christian fundamentalist group in the USA threatened to kill me for taking the piss out of Noah's Ark.

As I'm still here I presume they changed their minds.... and click on 'Listen'

The Drunk Punk Show every Saturday from 9pm UK time - if you've bugger all better to do on a Saturday night...

I wonder what it's like to be "suo'd"

It sounds like a gentle karate chop that you get during a massage.
