Web Rage???!!!
Story doing the rounds today :

"POLICE warned internet users to protect their real identities after a man was convicted yesterday of Britain’s first “web rage” attack.
Paul Gibbons, 47, of Bermondsey, southeast London, attacked John Jones with a pickaxe handle and knife, slitting his throat, after tracing Mr Jones to his house after an argument in an online chat room.

Here we go with the latest bandwagon - some poor guy gets nailed by a fellow blogger or chatroom "pal" after they had a disagreement online. Can you believe the daft sod put his address online?

Makes you wonder whether there will be legal moves to outlaw dangerous activity on the web. I can see it now, Charlie Falconer bringing in "The Dangerous Blog Act"
