Scout I know my first urge would be to give them a piece of my mind (lord knows they have none of their own) BUT responding back to them may not be a good idea. Taking it the authorities is the best idea. Just My thoughts.
LOL the IP thing is a joke. You know how easy it is to set up a proxy? Too easy. ************************************ Easy or not, some people are stupid and it is wise to check everything possible--ESPECIALLY since they decided to include Scout's child.
To me it is sick and needs to be reported, the quicker the better, hope it has already been done. The company my brother works with, they trace things for clients and it can be done. The things they can find out is actually scary. The only thing is being a Yahoo address gives some Anonymous strength to whoever.
Pyrmom, no one is being mean on here, hope you realize that. Most of us do not know scout or you or anyone else on here. It is a dog forum!!! If the comments were on her dog. LOL, WELL. It could have been anyone. I commented on the weight thing also. It made sense if scout is overweight whoever this is from might know her.
I have a friend who's child is on medication, she has people give her a hard time about it. Things like were posted in that email, well, if they are true could be someone she knows or was chummy with and they got mad for whatever reason.
If she is skinny minny then obviously they don't know her or they were so mad they just wanted to intimidate her.
No matter what, that person is a very sick individual. They need some anger management classes or something.
Scout that is sad that people have to resort to this kind of behavior. I am not on here much these days but I value each and everyone of you for all the help that I have gotten. I truly hope they catch this person and give them some extremem help..mentally.
that is horroble what has this forum come to. i thought this was supposed to be a place where we talk about helping people with animals and sharing our experiences.not to say horrible things about the people. who ever wrote that should be kicked off and never let come back again.when i joined this forum it was we nice to one another and then after time goes on more the more people get meaner and more harsh with words.those people should just go away.
WOW, what is that about? I don;t know what to say other than I'm sorry it happend to you and I sure hope you find out who it is. Life is way to short to get that worked up over something thats said on the internet. YUCK to say the least. Please let us know when you find out who it is!! PS. Saying something about your child is outrageous! Children are off limits here and any forum as far as I'm concerned.
I'm so sorry that someone is writing to you in this manner. You don't deserve this AT ALL!!! Please do as others have suggested...call/write to whomever can/will help,the more people,the merrier! I hope this fool is stopped now!! This is ridiculous *shaking head*!
Please update us as to what is being done about this threatening e-mail sent to you. I hope they get a bag of coal for Christmas!!
Eskieluver1234 I totally get what you are saying. To everyone, scout should try and find out who it is but don't get your hopes up because realistically it's very hard to do. Yahoo doesn't require credit cards or real names. It's like tracing a pre-paid cell phone ---- it can be done in concept but the person needs to make some very serious mistakes. Good Luck in finding this person. Scout don't bother explaining about your kid -- it is none of our business.
I think everyone in this thread has good intentions. We all want Scout to find out who has done this to her, of course. Let's not turn this into an argumentative thread, we all want the same thing here...to support Scout.
Scout, Thats terrible. good luck finding out who sent it...
a few months ago someone egged my car and broke my window.. I never found out who it was. I thought i was a bit old for egging!!! the cops said it was a random act of violence... I said bull!!! I think i know who it was but i could never prove it!!! It kills me to think they got the last word, but what goes around comes around.
Did you answer this person back? I would!! thats just me i have a big mouth lol ... Well I hope you find that coward and press harassment charges!! People are big and bad when they can hide behind something else like the computer or the phone.
Well good luck. Jenn

I'd just like to say I am so this has happened to you! I'm 27 yrs. old and have been taking ADHD meds. daily since age 7, it's no joking matter. Anyone who would put down a child for that or anyother reason is sick and must need help themselves! You will be in my thoughts and prayers, best of luck catching the fool!
Scout I'm sorry about the email sent to you. Personally I don't believe this person is any real threat but I would report this to authorities, hopefully they should be able to trace back the PC where the email was written from.
I am sorry this is happening scout. I have no idea why someone would do this. Have you been in any altercations in Chat lately? I know the board has been heated lately but I really do not remember you being a cause of anything really. If anything there was a few of us who are more deserving(not that anyone deserves that) of this type of e-mail then you. We have pissed off more people then you have. I would definitely turn them in to yahoo, as well as turn them in to your ISP, they can track it back to the original IP, or at least a general area of where it is coming from. (My brother in law runs an ISP), that is how I know. He was getting hacked and he was able to track it back to someone in California.
Good Luck and keep everyone updated. I am sure your son is great and you have nothing to worry about. Some people REALLY know how to touch certain nerves. I have been through something similar(you may remember)
