You’ve probably heard this by now, but “David Mabus”/Dennis Markuze, the notorious death-threat-spewing, non-sensical-phrasing, email/Twitter spammer is supposedly under arrest.
Tim Farley has the extensive breakdown of who “Mabus” is and how this arrest came to be. It’s a very compelling read even if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
Like so many other public atheists, I’ve gotten my share of “Mabus” threats. Even when I had “private” Twitter conversations with my friends, he’d often send threats to them as well. I never wanted to imagine the worst… but sometimes it’s hard not to.
Here’s hoping the Montreal police arrested the right guy and that he gets the help he needs. And let’s hope we never hear from him again.
