Gloating Warcraft III Winner Beaten at School

In a particularly rough, close game, that gloating jerk on the other end of the mic seems destined to be beaten down by karma, but karma usually isn’t this physical.

A story out of Vancouver tells the tale of a high schooler who apparently pushed his opponents one step too far, and his opponents knew exactly who he was. Rule #1 of being an online troll? Maintain anonymity.

Since he didn’t, he was humiliated, forced to kiss the feet of the losing squad. Had it ended there, it would have been true karma, but instead, the kid was beaten with batons, his fingers breaking in the process. No more Warcraft III for a while, and definitely a lesson learned.

The losing squad has not been apprehended yet, while Vancouver police Const. Lindsey Houghton says it best: “I guess some people take these things exceptionally seriously.” Yes Lindsey, yes they do.

The Cincinnati Post (Cincinnati, OH) June 8, 2005 Byline: Jan Perry Next, I want to pass along a hello from David Jenkins at www.hub-uk.com, an incredible site that elevates the art of food preparation, fine dining and gourmet eating. His site was included in this column last year, but it has gotten bigger and better. David wrote to say thank you for the mention and to let us know the site just celebrated five-years on the Web. this web site how to report a scam

Several more I’d like to suggest are:

Dee Adams created this clever site — www.minniepauz.com — to help women cope with menopause (and men cope with women coping with menopause) more than eight years ago. She, wrote to invite column readers to take a look at the lighter side of the situation following the May 25 column on this usually serious topic.

Robb Perry, information manager for the American Theatre Wing, wrote to let me know that when the URL for the Tony site was moved to the electronic version of The Post, an ill-placed hyphen rendered the address unusable. (The address broke over two lines in the printed Post, thus the errant hyphen.) The correct address is www.TonyAwards.com — and if you missed the show, don’t miss the site.

Finally, there was this, which came in reference to the grilling column that ran on Monday. “Puny Human Jan, Hulk find out you like his Hulk Drop Martini. Hulk says good, but Puny Humans should consume in moderation. howtoreportascamnow.com how to report a scam

Hulk suggests maybe write article about Celiac Disease. Hulk’s two little buddies have this — see: www.komar.org/faq/celiac_disease — Hulk thinks good to raise awareness of this.

Happy SMASHING, Hulkster.” Jan Perry is a Kentucky-based freelance writer for The Post. She welcomes your comments and suggestions and invites you to become a contributor for a future “reader wrap up” column by sending your topic or site ideas to SiteSeer2K(AT_SIGN)aol.com.
