This sickens me

A death threat was made against Kathy Sierra. Some sick fool thought it was funny - in fact it's so serious she's cancelled an appearance at a conference due to safety concerns, suspended her blog and there's a police investigation.

Can anyone with a functioning brain explain how a death threat is funny? (Those who came up with the threat naturally don't fit into the category.)

Kathy goes into disturbing details of the threat - the language and the image that came with the threat is truly nauseating.

Scobelizer is protesting by not blogging for a week.

How did things get so bad that a woman is fear for her own safety?

Techmeme has more discussions.
