Viruses - Are they pure evil? Answered

Recently I came across a racist online, and he really disgusted me. I won't go into the details of what he said, but since he threatened me, I decided I wanted to do something about it. Now, what I'm suggesting would be making another account on the website it's on and acting all friendly, then asking for his email (and he seems stupid enough to give it) and then sending him an attachment on the email to crash his computer. I know it's illegal, but he threatened to come and kill my family, so I could say it was in self defense. So what do you all think? Should I go ahead with it, or would it be a bad idea? The website is youtube by the way, so with him on there (and I think he may live near me, as one of his videos somewhat shows) I'm scared to post anything (and yes I know he won't kill me, but it's freakin me out here) And if you don't agree, he seems to support Hitler if you catch my drift.

I don't think you should send him a virus because it is repaying evil for evil and that is wrong. Also what you are going to do is illegal. Even if all of this doesn't bother you don't do this unless you know how to cover your tracks well enough that you can't be traced.

Crashing someone's computer isn't much for self-defense.

Exactly what are the chances of some random guy on Youtube hunting you down and killing you? If you're really concerned, tell someone responsible, like the police. Our tax dollars *should be* more than willing to help.

Meh... when you get someone arrested, they just want to kill your more... I'd prefer to sever his connection to the internet, then just have him run after the other youtube account like he was the one who did it.

Have you reported him to YouTube?

Point out that his comments are offensive, and possibly outright illegal, and that they could be held responsible for them as the site that hosts his account.

(I don't know if that is true, but it should be.)

Well, he was banned once, but he just created a new account... He really seems to have a passion for aggression...

Ya and he's more then likely a 10 to 15 year old who just needs a good swat from a parent, his parents may also need a good swat for not giving him one when needed....Or maybe he just needs to leave his bedroom and meet some real people .... So just report him to Youtube and if he annoys you again, just report him again, and if you take the death threats seriously contact the police and let them deal with it, when they visit him, he will more then likely sink him self so far in the ..... He'll never get out.... Script kiddies are normally full of bovine fecal material anyhow..... And before you do anything like what your thinking, learn about Proxies or how to surf the web anonymously......

You can't report him... only flag his videos.

I think you should get his email, then go to a whole bunch of websites and fill out forms so that he'll get spammed beyond belief, you get satisfaction out of it without him knowing you did something.

crashing someones computer isnt self defence at all! its retaliation. that will just get you in trouble, along with him if the cops do find out. Just report him to the cops, because a death threat is always taken heavily. you can never get out of a threatening someone by saying "o well it was just a joke" or something along those lines because of the mental strain it puts on a person.

I'm with Zeppie. So far the only crime committed has been the death threat. Report it to the authorities. Retaliation only proves that he's getting to you. Don't give him the satisfaction.

No. Report him to the authorities. Lock your doors at night, and let it be.

well, is a start... but the first step is to get a gun, then crash his computer, then make him angry last, when he hunts you down and finds you, kill him unless he doesn't have a weapon except if he hits you

I would go so far as to say you chould do that. However, I can't tell you to or tell you how because then I would be an accomplice.

It may be funny, theoretically, if you made this virus and it put up a huge picture of whatever group he is racist against before it crashes his computer.

once again, this would be illegal to do so I was only talking in THEORY.

I know, I had could first, then changed it to should, then changed it back to could in order to avoid being an accomplice. However, i forgot to change the s and the H.

Is he's enough of a dumbass to call you racist stuff, then he's probably enough of a dumbass to not be running antivirus software.
