Well, If you don't know the person and has never talked to the person, then how do I suppose they know so much about you? All websites in which there is any way of communication, there is a way to block the user from contacting you. If the person can contact you by phone, you can call your phone company and have their texts and calls blocked. If the person is able to make physical contact with you, then you can get a restraining order. In your case, which is harassment on a public discussion board, you can easily report their comments/or post. I don't think you have to go as far as calling the F.B.I., because usually these kind of people are posers and want some type of "2nd life", or authority.

Best way is to tell them that you printed out the threats and if they don't stop, you will file charges, if the threats are life threating, you can call the f.b.I  in on this, guaranteed that will make them stop

Thank you! I have asked about legal remedies and whom I have talked to say I can't do anything without the physical proof. It is very frustrating cuz its like your at their mercy. And you didn't even do anything to warrant it! She feels I stated something about a friend and this woman has gone nuts on me. Totally insane. And I have said I printed and told an attorney about them. All she did was say BS you did not and I can say whatever i want under the freedom of speech law.

What if you know the person and they threatened to shoot you?
I called the local cops but they say nothing can be done because the guy who threatened me is on the other side of the country.

I think the quickest way would be to contact the Blurtit team.Get a hold of Junta or nascarnut or go to the bottom of this page.

I don't think it is happening on Blurtit. Its a general question, which means it can be any website.
