TNT, I think you owe 420 SE an apology.
If you heard anything DIRECTLY from your CEO like I have then I assure you it ain't 420
He is the one who owes me an apology. How is it any different for a forum member to research another and then threaten to tell lies about him to his wife?
I believe we have had instances of that.
My point is that he threatened me, again against the TOS. When I did not back down and reported the threat he made an excuse that it was a joke that was carried too far. All was forgiven by Benzworld powers that be.
To that end, I hold people to what they say and I expect other to do the same of me. At no time would I threaten to attempt to do damage to another member of this forum or their ability to make a living.
The issue at hand that it was not just a joke. The guy actually went out and researched who I was, who I worked for and looked up the CEO of my company in an attempt to intimidate me.
Regardless of whether or not he meant what he said, or would have carried through with it, it is much more serious when then is an overt act to find out the identity of another poster and try to intimidate them.
I guess that I just feel that if a person wants to search me out, and try to intimidate me that is not a joke nor does it have place on an internet forum based upon the free exchange of ideas.
