    Agreed. ^^

    Besides I'd ask myself this simple question; 'To what end?'
    What do I get out of it as benefit? How about my cost in time? And flatly, why do or should I care regardless?

    Let it slide.

    Depends on the situation. It would depend on what you were ranting about in the first place. Is it important enough to you that you feel you should debate it further with the person?

    In fact you can go to the UserCP in this forum and put them on your

    It is not your job to babysit others. Especially a stranger online. Leave them to their own devices. If they want to ignore the law, they will. You can help them find good info, but that is about it. If you know of a crime that is imminent contact the site mods and LEO.

    People leave clues if they write enough, unless they are very, very careful.
    Yup, it's called data mining. Dig deep enough for long enough and you'll find out a lot.

    That's why I limit the amount of personal information that I put out on public forums.

    I'm going to echo Janq here. I'd just let it go. I can't see what positive outcome there would be by calling someone out or wasting time out of your life to do research about this person. Clearly it's someone who's actions bother you, why give it any more of your attention?

    I think that actually finding the person you're ranting about on the same blog replying to your rant is slim. Now meeting someone who may have the same ideas as that person is much greater.

    It also could just be someone playing devils advocate to see exactly where you are coming from. Sometimes thats a very good way to ferret out all the facts.

    Someone may have the same views as them, and are different than yours. So what ? IF 99 people say this, and 1 that... doesn't mean the 1 is wrong either.

    I don't understand why it's even a concern to you.

    I would check to see if the person responds to this post (as I suspect you are) and take it from there. :)

    This one has been good for a few hearty laughs anyway. I have to agree with the majority though. What good would it do? I have enough things to drive me crazy these days without conspiracies to feed into.
