A Good Argument For Pseudonyms

As if gay leftists weren't bad enough, now it seems we have crazy naval personnel moving their online feuds into everyday life.

Money quote:
“I’ve worked plenty of arson cases, but never one as bizarre as this one,” (McClellan County Detective James) Pack said. “Most are committed for money or getting back at somebody. This one he blames on the computer. Tavares said if it wasn’t for the computer, this wouldn’t have happened."

Oh, it would have happened; it just wouldn't have been this guy's trailer. There's a big difference between causing bad behavior and simply being the means by which it was precipitated.

And hence the usual problem with democratization of power; it falls to both those who use it wisely and those who do the 180-degree opposite.
