Police finally take notice of Twitter threats: It looks like Mabus/Markuze is finally under investigation after a decade or so of threatening countless people. Martin Pribble had a good post about it: A Small Victory - Montreal Menace in the News
I think it is a weird by-product of the online atheist community that it is almost as if you aren’t a “popular atheist” if you haven’t had death threats from Mabus. I’m “happy” to report that both the Left Hemispheres and my personal Twitter accounts have been Mabus’d. Yay?

Not a single one had anything to do with atheism.”
