Call the police and have them check into it and if they find it to be threatening they will contact the company who is in charge of the blog and get the ip address and trace I to them and then you can press charges.

First you take the constitution, and you burn it. Then you piss on freedom. Then you contact the gestapo and tell them that Bobby Willikers said something mean on the internet. Then you go back to your life, always knowing someone said something mean...

Threats MIGHT get you the IP. Then you have to swear out a warrant, and most likely it will be a misdemeanor (most threats are). A suspect in a misdemeanor offense can't be extradited by the way, only for a felony. The originating agency has to pay the cost for the extradition so you can imagine how eager they will be to do so. Usually most agencies won't extradite a felony unless there is actual violence involved or property over 7500 bucks, or higher level drug offenses. Lesser felony offenses usually get a "within 100 miles" limitation put on them (basically if they can send an officer in a patrol unit to get them and get back within the same shift so they don't pay overtime). I would recommend 2 other options in this case. Ridicule the poster, or IGNORE IT. If all they do is talk crap, you are outta luck. Topix usually has to be forced to obey a subpeona by a higher court, which is ANOTHER expensive and time consuming court procedure.

I agree with lulzy. Also, if it's a threat against you personally then by all means try to press charges but if someone is just posting negative comments about you then my theory is if they are talking about me then they are giving some other poor soul a break. I have wide shoulders and can handle it. Otherwise, what you and God knows to be the truth is all that truly matters.
