New Troll Warning

It looks like Mr. Troll doesn't like to be called out as I did in my column. Here is the first of two e-mails he sent me at the Indy:

Since you like publishing half truths and emails. I published yours and some half truths about you on a few choice sites. I will make sure you and your paper will never be trusted.

The second e-mail said this: Private boards that are watched like a hawk. All 3 very small due to that. Again half truths and lies. I will make sure people around here cannot trust you.

One place for trolls to wreak their havoc is on the posting boards like AmarilloTalk or Wolfman's Hideaway or on blogs like Panhandle Truth Squad.

I thought a heads up would be appropriate. This kind of trolling is getting out of hand. It shows a dark side to the Internet.

Frankly, I don’t care if he tries to attack me or the Indy. His credibility will never be as good as mine because people know who I am. Hiding behind a screen name is cowardice.
