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 to protect
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.

The threats I write of, as under the heading of "net terrorism" are
for unwholesome, and unlawful purposes.  Defense is not unlawful or

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