You're Not As Anonymous As You Think You Are


I recently shared an illustration of the prototypical blog troll.  If you give a guy an audience and perceived anonymity, the end result can be super dickish.

Earlier today, an incredibly stupid comment was left on a hockey forum site.  Here's that message.

I'm killing Ovechkin. I'm going to jail. I don't care anymore.

This is an important message to all the trolls out there.  You're not as anonymous as you think you are.  Posting on a message board that you're going to kill someone will put you in a mountain of trouble.

Police didn't identify the accused, but local Pittsburgh news outlets are reporting that the post allegedly came from a 17-year-old residing in central Pennsylvania.

Sidney Crosby is 21, so there goes that theory.
