Internet Security Threat Report 2014

FoTW Regular readers will be aware of the Vulture Central tradition which dicates that you're not a fully-fledged Reg hack until you've been subjected to a vicious outburst of e-anger from some reader with steam coming out of his or her ears.

Well, we're delighted to report that Bill Ray this week passed this milestone in fine style. The flame in question is regarding a pretty inoffensive piece on GameJump.com - a website apparently offering free mobile games. Not so, thunders "fatty p":

see you mate you are a rit wanker pricks like you need a slap round the head say that games are free and they anit even fucking free

Well, according to a visibly-shaken Bill Ray, there are free games down at GameJump.com, so quite what this is all about is anyone's guess.

But while I was chuckling to myself as poor old Bill locked himself in a darkened room with a litre of strong liquor, reader "Mikey" was preparing a nuclear counterstrike to my analysis of Israel's 2007 Eurovision Song Contest entry:

Mate - you are such an anti-semitic turd, you have no idea of Middle East politics and frankly you need to get a life. Make sure you are better informed before you post crap on a high quality site. I will be taking action to have your pitiful comments removed.

Accordingly, both myself and Mr Ray have hidden ourselves in the cupboard under the stairs until we are officially informed it is safe to come out, or until the bottle of Scotch runs out - whichever comes first. ®
