Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
besides he said they CAN'T charge after the fact. The "smart" person would also disobey the forum rules by using a fake name. Would you be caught? maybe.
Any person with half a brain can track down user names. Especially cross checking social sites and auction sites. You can find a LOT of info about people on the internet without paying a dime.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
How would they know? I look at so many places on the internet, I couldn't possibly remember them all. And, that IS the honest truth. I don't remember what I post when and where. They wouldn't even have probable cause to get a warrant for my home computer for a shooting case. If they want to find out if I have a myspace account or whatever, they can do that on their own...Failing to provide this material can lead to severe sanctions.
And, see below...I don't recall... I don't remember... Hey, it worked for Reagan in front of Congress!That's an interesting way to justify lying under oath. It's OK to commit perjury, because how would they know?
I guess I'm more wondering IF anyone has successfully been prosecuted because they said something on a gun board. Do prosecutors really go this hard after stuff like this? If someone gets into a car accident with a fatality, do they go trolling all the car forums to see if this guy talked about driving like a maniac or pretending he was Richard Petty or something? I find that hard to believe...
You can use tools overwrite files, then delete them, but it is a time consuming process.
The only way that would be truly untraceable would be to use a laptop on various free wifi hotspots. You would want to remove the hard drive and boot off of a Linux Live CD and make up a custom MAC address for your WiFi card each time and only access these types of forums. Even then, you'd do something that would/could lead the wrong arm of the law back to you.
It is better to just NOT put the information out there if you don't want it to come back to you.

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria
This thread has exploded into the usual minuta and tangents...
What to say...weapons more powerful than the police...internet statements being used against you...civil suits...criminal trials...
If you would like to discuss the rules of criminal and civil procedure, grab a practice book and start reading. Also grab a text on evidence, it's admissability and other discovery matters.
You should be back and able to discuss inteligently your state's rules of practice and code of evidence in about 6 months.
Till then...If you don't know, don't make it up or get your legal advice from TV.
As to Mr. Harold Fish...He wasn't prosecuted for the use of his 10mm. He was prosecuted because he gave mutually contradictory statements to the police when he spoke without an attorney for about SIX HOURS.
Yes, junior power rangers...he yammered on and on and on...
His 10mm would have been a footnote in history had he been smarter.
I swear I'm going to get myself a 10mm Glock, put a set of Big Dots on it, and find myself the most powerful loads I can (I'm thinking a 180 Grain Gold Dot or XTP pushed to 1,600 FPS...), and set that bad boy up as a carry handgun just to make a point - THE GUN AND THE AMMO DON'T MATTER.
Only your actions before, during and after matter.
