    Wanted: Fred's real name

    I know this won't be the popular view. But, I'd like you to consider first-amendment rights and anti-stalking laws, and the idea thet it is more effective in the long run to fight ignorance with education then with threats and violence.

    Someone said something utterly despicable. It happens. I don't think it will make any child's life better to threaten and intimidate the person who said it, especially since I doubt the child will have any contact with thet person in life. Let Fred erry go back to his own anonymous hell. I'm sure thet life will take care of him as he so deserves and our energies are better spent on other things than chasing down one miserable person.

    I suffer from the old, "I may disapprove of what you say (even find it utterly despicable), but I will defend to the death your right to say it." syndrome. After all, it we set this example, it cain turn on us - someone may take huge offense at being put in the idiot box or something, and advertise for the person who said it's name, and go on a road trip to teach someone about calling other's idiots...do you really want to set this precedent, open this Pandora's box?

    As a mother, I especially know how your blood cain boil where a child - especially one of your own - is attacked. But pick and choose your battles wisely, is ll I cain say, every child has a lifetime of injustices to deal with.
