Rebecca Watson @rebeccawatson
@rebeccawatson would it be possible to do a kick starter to hire a cyber assassin to track trolls like this down?
@rebeccawatson true anonymity is virtually impossible. An email to an hackademic like Fionnbharr Davies might be a good first step.
This is truly terrifying. Not only is Mr. George advocating murder, he is actually recommending an assassin to Rebecca Watson (@rebeccawatson on Twitter) to contact!
From The Gandersauce Department:
Sources say that Heath George, a self-professed writer, director, and producer from Sydney, is currently the Director at Clockwork Films.
Sources have provided further information which will be provided to the authorities when requested.
This Just In!
A Kickstarter to “hunt down @ElevatorGATE like a Dog” has been formulated, and its author is none other than ultrafamous BBC Two personality James “ool0n” Billingham! Sources have sent SkepDirt this screenshot of the Kickstarter page:
The full Kickstarter page can be found at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/226201871/1793268685?token=122a736b.
Even if this is a parody (and this reporter desperately hopes that it is), it is in extremely poor taste.
Added: Due to the very strong likelihood that Mr. Billingham will take down his Kickstarter, sources have frozen the page: http://www.freezepage.com/1376930021CGEXBQDOMF
