  1. Agreed on Mr. Unwin’s epitaph!

    I’m fascinated by what exactly constitutes ‘enabling’ rape threats… I’ve read the linked page, but it doesn’t seem to say much other than that ‘rape threats’ were posted in the comments of this chap’s blog, but the link purporting to show them is dead…

    • Multiple individuals stated they were going to rape Laurie, some of them in reply to comments she left. At least one commenter also posted her address in the comments. That was deleted (because Staines always comes very close to the limits of legally protected speech but never over the line) but the threats themselves remained.
