I know, but I have a frankly dumb habit of calling out these morons on their shitty behavior in public forums, hoping that the social anxiety of strangers judging them will stop them from opening their goddamn mouths.

Wait I thought conservatives hated “cancel culture” last week. Boy it’s so hard to understand these morons.

I believe I heard about something like this, regarding a video game streamer who had received threats. So he put a call in to his local stations just to give them a heads up. Sure enough, they gave him a call back a few days later to let him know they had received a call about a hostage situation or something like Read more

Seattle PD keeps a list of people who are in danger of being SWATed. If someone calls and reports a crime in progress that would normally get the SWAT team called to the house of one of these people, they attempt to contact the person first to confirm whether or not they actually need help. It’s not a perfect system, Read more

Umm, don’t know if folks out there are new to swatting...but yeah, it is meant to cause real physical harm. Those of us Kotaku and Jezebel readers (yeah we’re out here, hiya!) will remember how bad things were during Gamergate. And sometimes, these asshats are successful. Read more

You fix it by not training police to think they operate in a war zone where everyone who looks at them funny is a potential mass murderer bent on preventing them from going home their families that night. Because that is a thing we actually do right now.

If I woke up in a room with just Katie Porter and a whiteboard, with her starting to pepper me with lawyer questions, I’d confess to shit I couldn’t have been a part of. The Kennedy Assassination. The Lincoln Assassination. Loading the gun that killed Hamilton. Driving the Titanic. Whatever. She does not play.

Perhaps an extreme view, but I largely see swatting as an attempt to commit murder through police. The people who do this aren’t trying to simply inconvenience someone. They call and say things like there are hostages or someone has been killed. People have been killed as a result of this. Read more

Many years ago, the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch did a story on people with vanity plates and interviewed a lady driving a BMW with the plate ‘WUZHIS’.  Yep, she got it in the divorce.  It still makes me chuckle.

Yup. The Venn diagram of people who go all bullshit about their kids watching TEH GAY and people who are in any way meaningfully involved in their kids’ lives is probably two separate circles.

It’s a Picture of Dorian Gray deal, the empty whiteboard is used to record Ted's dignity.

I’m thankful for vanity plates. They make it that much easier to identify folks who flee from the scene of an accident.
