I would tend to agree with SarahW, but it seems these weigher-inners would not:

I would be scared if I got a threat like that.  –Dustin

I say follow it through … expose this person and get them on Internet threats.  –Anita Busch   She’s absolutely right in this case.  –Dustin

7/15/11: I just am more focused on the Alicia Pain and other criminal activity. I want whoever is behind that to go to prison.  –Dustin

you [GC] called Alicia Pain’s threats “benign” above. You should not offer opinions like that when you don’t know the facts  –Patterico

I hope LE is also looking into Alicia Pain  –DRJ

At a minimum, someone named Alicia Pain threatened me. That much is illegal. I have repeatedly said there is more going on as well.  –Patterico

Alicia Pain claims she contacted you. Is that true? Which means you may need protection.  –az5thdstrct

If you/your family did receive a threat from Alicia Pain, why not contact the authorities? (Assume Patterico would advise) that not to succumb to the threat and best to protect family is to contact authorities to investigate.  –az5thdstrct

I received an e-mail threat that night from “Alicia Pain” threatening my family if I looked into the activities of Gennette and Weiner any further.  –Patterico

I spoke today to detectives from two jurisdictions.  –Patterico

My main goal in getting involved has been to make sure all agencies are talking to each other. Be assured that I am making efforts to ensure that happens.  –Patterico

I will not discuss which jurisdictions.  –Patterico

This person, assuming it’s just one person, is dangerous. Everyone whose real name is known out there should be aware of their surroundings, make sure someone knows where they are and what they are doing, etc.  –Dustin

i knew all about that one, and told him … call the police on them…  –Aaron Worthing

the authorities are looking into who sent these threats, and they are going catch that person.  –Dustin

How does that help me catch the people menacing my family?  –Patterico

we consider this important.  –Patterico

I simply wish we could find the people that did the threats, get that taken care of- and then take the time to unravel the mystery. Someone/s needs to be in jail…asap.  –ppk_pixie

there are some extremely aggressive bad guys threatening people … and even taking their threats to the next level where law enforcement knows it has to stop them.  –Dustin

If [qritiq’s] going to continue to …  snark at real threats, then she is not welcome.  –Patterico

.

but despite all the very grimm rhetoric, some thought:

The threat emails are incredibly lame, its like if they created CSI:Fargo and did hour long episodes on shoplifting.  –milowent
