The Administrator Wins One
If you know someone who moderates or administers and on-line community, send them this article with a big Thank You!
Apparently, a Seattle man has been charged with "intent to bomb" after posting a threatening and unstable rant on Fetlife.com, one of the sites that I recommend as a safe place to read, chat and learn for those who are new and curious about the many faces of kink. The administrator of the site caught his post and alerted police. Hooray!
I also have to point out, as someone who's been a member of Fetlife since shortly after they went live, the majority of the members are wonderful, friendly, and sane individuals! I'm glad that the admin flagged this guy with the police (and hopefully booted him off the site as well). This is the kind of looney who makes it difficult for the rest of us kinky folk.
Lastly, I'm relieved that he was apprehended without incident, and I hope he gets the mental health support that he clearly needs.
Just say no to bombs, people.
