Tonight we’ll close up Billy Sez by looking at a point of disagreement between Bill Schmalfeldt and, err… the rest of sane society. That being that Bill does not make threats on the Internet. Here he is in, as usual, his own words.
Yeah, an IODIT™. We’ve heard that one before.
So when we read what you say and take it as a threat, Bill, we’re IODITs™ and we’re stupid- do we have that right?

Oh, Bill and that big address book of his. What a social butterfly!

Something tells us here that what is “necessary” is in the eye of the beholder.
…We can’t even come up up with a clever line for that one, Bill. Oh yeah, that’s right. Promise, not threat. A promise to “curb-stomp” someone. How delightful.
Oh, no way to take that as a threat. Just a kind inquiry about our well-being, right.

So, does Bill make threats or no? Again, kind reader, while we at Billy Sez have an opinion (we agree with the folks at Twitter, where Bill is
for, among others, making threats), you need to decide for yourself. We think, if Bill would be honest, he’d agree, and join with us in saying
