This is a question Crazy People off the Internet

The internet is full of mental. Ever been threatened with violence? Did it spill over into real life? Tell us your story. Or maybe you wish to buck the trend and tell us about the how you've met lots of quite nice, sane people.

I made money from a nutcase
I made a lot of money from an internet kook. I shan't name this man but I shall relate as much as I can.

This man would post open-ended, vague prophecies to a certain internet forum (well actually lots of forums, but one I happened to be on too). A typical prophecy might be to warn of a "hurricane of death" that would kill "many" without saying when or where or how many. Then he'd wait for a hurricane to kill enough people and dig out this mouldy prophecy and proclaim his own greatness. He had whole shopping lists of similar prophecies.

This man was a narcissist. Like most narcissists they fly into a rage if they don't receive the adulation they believe they are entitled to. All his ghoulish delight in death and disaster just earned him mockery not adulation. So he'd wig out and it was fun to watch. But sometimes he went so far as griefing his detractors in real life, accusing them of being paedophiles to work colleagues, bosses etc. He was a nasty prick in other words.

So any way the guy gets arrested. In the US background checks in one state will reveal if someone is wanted in another state. He was. He had an outstanding warrant for skipping state while on trial for running someone down. He had been convicted in absentia. So he stewed in jail for months awaiting extradition proceedings to happen and after that he enjoyed serving his original sentence plus extra time on top.

Wouldn't you know that another of his hobbies was registering domain names? Most of them were junk but one in particular caught my eye. So as soon as I heard he was arrested I reserved the domain from the hosting company that he used. The company would hold the domain should it ever expire and give me the option of buying. And since he was in jail it did expire, I took ownership and I've owned it ever since.

I bought some hosting for the domain, put some useful content on it to make it attractive and search engine friendly and threw some banner ads in here and there. I reckon must have earned about £15k during the time I've owned it. Not a fortune but a small buffer on top of my regular income.

So I'd like to thank this horrible excuse of a human being. This pathetic smear of dogshit on the sole of humanity. If not for his obnoxious narcissism and felonious past I would not have owned this site and I wouldn't have enjoyed the money from doing so.

whilst I understand your reasons for not doing so
It's a huge shame you can't give details, as I'm now burning with curiosity

The mental guy with the websites in the OP fingers kids.
That's all I'm saying. Work the rest out for yourself.

How are these tales linked?

They're not.
I was just highlighting the similarities in levels of tension to find out the outcome.

I wish I could
Is there a way to PM? I could send you a few links but really I don't want this fool doing a search on his own name and find his way to this site.

Click on micto's username link
that'll take you to his profile page, there you should see a link to "Send me a message" (otherwise known as gazzing).
Gaz him.

EDIT: Being micto he's also got a definition for gaz for you here.
