I'd like some advice.
He recently crossed a line on this blog, writing a comment on my post about Goran, which really opened a door into the outer darkness. I'd really like to put this guy out of business permanently. I'd prefer to do that by exposing him, by posting his name, address, phone number, employer, and picture up for all the world to see. He's clearly a sociopath who uses public computers around the Providence, RI area. I know there are some bloggers that he targets out there (and there are a lot of them) who track his various IP addresses. I'm thinking about doing the same, and I wonder if it might be worth the trouble of contacting the cops. He certainly is a nuisance, but how serious a nuisance is he really, and must I put up with it?
I suspect that he is small fry, a lonely obsessive with a crappy job and few to no friends, with a life so empty that trolling blogs is the only way he knows how to fill up the time. I doubt that he is quite the prominent and influential figure Robroy turned out to be. For those of you who aren't familiar with him, "Robroy" was the nom de guerre of a ferociously homophobic right wing ranter who regularly plagued Episcopal blogs and was publicly exposed as a prominent physician, political figure, and "ex-gay" in southeast Colorado. After he got outed, he hasn't been back since on anyone's blog so far as I know. I'm wondering if outing Brad Evans will have the same effect, or is he worth the trouble. Is he worth contacting the cops over, and if necessary, filing a criminal complaint?
What do you think?
