Assuming this is correct, I guess Monkey Chops was right, props to him! I am always amazed at the power of the internet to uncover facts like these.
I can clarify this for you guys. I am a regular in the chatroom this incident stemmed from.
Neither of these guys were muslim nor had any interest in the islamic faith beyond levelling criticism at it. As I myself was there doing.
These two developed a personal running feud over a number of months which had nothing to with islam. The final straw seemed to be when jones accused gibbons of being a paedophile.
The paedophile accusations carried on a for a number of weeks and culminated with gibbons making a threat a week before the actual assault to "fuckin kill you jones"
He went as far as to make a countdown each day. Six days to go, five days to go etc. Then he actually carried out his threat as you are all aware.
Gibbons was clearly a nutcase. He often ranted and raved like a lunatic on voice in the chatroom.I should perhaps mention before finishing off that jones actually included his full name (johnny jones) in his chatroom identity. And often made references to his rough location though not actually his address.
Gibbons was able to locate his address through electoral records using his name and the location jones openly gave in the chatroom.

Follow up to "web rage" article
As has happened in the past, sometimes posting articles on this site causes original participants in an event in question to find the article and comment on it. Previously, I had written of a "web rage" event in a 'Yahoo, Islam' chat room, and speculated that Islam was the cause of said web rage. Well, to be surprise, a participant in the chat room found this site and commented. (or so he says he was a participant, anyway!)
