Meet Paul Gibbons and John Jones. They met in a yahoo chat room, discussing Islam. (it was yahoo, Islam chat) Evidently John Jones said something that so offended Paul Gibbons that he drove 70 miles to Jones's home, and beat him with a machete. I do not know what was said to cause such a rage, but I am guessing it was about...Islam. (given it was a yahoo Islam chatroom) This is why I do not post pictures of myself on this board, and use an alias. You can never be too safe. This case is really an eye opener. The British police said this was the first recorded case of "web rage," save for the"Magnolia fan" incident in the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back movie.
