Code of Virginia, § 18.2-152.7:1. Harassment by computer; penalty

I've been receiving threatening & obscene messages
from this person whose name is not going to be listed
in the article. However he must know the messages will
cease immediately or suffer the consequences. The
message below is one of his messages.

"I would suggest finding a brick wall and pretending its me.
Don't worry about the blood. Thats normal, you will
get used to it. Its future preparation for when you
get your ass kicked in real life for being such a
dumbass and jerk."

Obscene or offensive content

The content of websites and other electronic

communications may be distasteful, obscene
or offensive for a variety of reasons. In some

instances these communications may be illegal.

Many[quantify] jurisdictions place limits on certain

speech and ban racist, blasphemous, politically
subversive, libelous or slanderous, seditious,

or inflammatory material that tends to incite hate crimes.

The extent to which these communications are unlawful

varies greatly between countries, and even within
nations. It is a sensitive area in which the courts can

become involved in arbitrating between groups with
entrenched beliefs.

One area of Internet pornography that has been the target

of the strongest efforts at curtailment
is child pornography.


Whereas content may be offensive in a non-specific way,

harassment directs obscenities and derogatory
comments at specific individuals focusing for example

on gender, race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation.
This often occurs in chat rooms, through newsgroups, and
by sending hate e-mail to interested parties

Any comment that may

be found derogatory or offensive is considered harassment.
