I hope the police catch the person/people involved in this story from Robert Scoble. The victim, Kathy Sierra, blogs about her threats - here: warning, strong language.

At the back of my brain, there is a nagging feeling that this is yet another issue of the real world-virtual world overlap, discussed recently. If the politicians and police just want to control things, rather than protect people, who is left to help? Where are the Net marshals? In the USA, will the FBI be going after these scum?

The Net allows the good and the bad. Will goodness make the badness go away, or will the true evil of human nature triumph as we slide down the toilet to the end of days?
