      organized a citizens' intel project.   Any chance you'd be interested in studying violent groups in a more organized & ongoing way?

        My style of diary is much more "Get everybody together and do something collaborative, and I'll help." than "MiscellanyMan is going to hand you the knowledge, Behold!"  As I've said before, 99% of the time, DailyKos as a whole is going to be smarter than I am.  Why not take advantage of it.

        As for more longstanding research into violent groups, I'd be happy to help, but aside from having decent research skills and being able to be nosy on the internet, I'm not sure if I'm the most qualified.

          Technical skills are also good, but can usually be learned.  The main qualifications are the kinds of things you've already demonstrated.  And crowd-sourcing is another word for managing a project.  

          If you're motivated to help catch people like this, and/or prevent future cases of this kind or worse, there are places to plug in and make a contribution.   Do you have an email address you can post in spamproof format e.g. "bob (who is at) serviceprovider (period) comm"?

            As far as safely sending one's email places is concerned.  There's a site called scr.im that I read about on lifehacker.  Let's give it a go:

            Scr.im-protected link to email address.

            •  tried it; it's broken. (0+ / 0-)

              The site appears to be broken:

              a)  The first entry page has a character string on the left that does not match any of the character strings on the right.

              b)  When using the fail-safe mode, entering the presented characters results in getting a bounce message as if the wrong characters were entered.

              I think their captcha system is borked. I'll try again later; any other ideas?  (Or if needed, I can post a temporary phone number you can call, that's routed to me through one of my machines.)

                Tried it out myself, had no trouble. Wonder what's gone wrong.

                In that case, address is (ignore spaces and numbers) vorpal 2spamcatcher2 (at) gm7ail d0t kom.

                Let's see if that's just the right degree of cryptic enough to do the trick.  It's not my most crucial of accounts, so it's ok if I get some junk my way.

                •  quick question (0+ / 0-)

                  is the word between the numerals part of your address?, or is it part of the obfuscation to throw nasties off the trail?  Or is it that the text between the numerals is good, but the numerals themselves are to be discarded?

                    So, if you play fill-in-the-blank, it's v_rp_lsp_mc_tch_r@g_ail_com

                    Hope that helps.

                    •  email sent (0+ / 0-)

                      From an address that has an obvious geek-word before the .com, and with a relevant subject header.  

                      I'm going to be away from desk until evening.  We'll be in touch.
