PH: In the following example, the poster threatens to post private
PH: correspondence unless the victim (a former lover) stops posting.
BK: What is the person posting? If I utilize a threat in order
myself, it's not the same as one utilizing a threat in order to attack
for the purpose of controlling a newsgroup, promoting censorship,
expressing bigotry and hatred, or whatever.

Any type of threat can be either a justifiable defense, or terrorism.
