Robert Marcus: Real threat or just another stupid Clam?Oh boy. In one of the most stunning posts ever to be made on ars, Robert Marcus posts a mildly veiled death threat to Diane Richardson, one of the most liked posters on alt.religion.scientology. Predictably enough, reaction from ars regulars was instantaneous and vehement.
Incredibly enough, Marcus seems to be quite proud of his recent efforts. Here is his repost of his infamous apology that wasn't. For the record, here is the original post, although it's probably not different enough from the repost to be worth looking at.
(Note that, although I do not have the original threat post made by Marcus, many of the responses record virtually the entire thing).
