I saw this post today over at Wirecutter’s about the government demanding the identifying information of people who post things critical of the government/FBI/cops. Wirecutter said:
Yeah, keep that in mind next time you leave a comment on a blog about killing feds.
I can guarantee you that this will extend to blogs and different blogging hosts will fall all over themselves to turn over information about people leaving threats, even if they are just venting.
That is the exact reason why I don’t want people who post comments here to have to register. I don’t collect information on anyone who posts here. I don’t want to know who you are. I can’t be forced to turn over information that I don’t possess.
With that being said, making threats is just a good way to be on the radar. My advice to anyone who is opposed to what is happening is this: be the gray man. Don’t be on the radar.
