Discussion: are these threats against a child for caring about cats?

I have written this article in response to several remarks made on the article about two women who enjoy hunting with a bow and arrow (opens a new window). I’ve been told that I write things that could be considered slander or libel. I’d like for everyone to know that the articles I do have several reputable references to back up what I’m saying.

“Betty KooKoo” (a commenter) has the belief that the other online news site I write for about cats, Greenville Cats Examiner, is monitoring the comments made and will use them against me as evidence. The truth is, for most of the articles I do for them I check to keep the comments closed due to two cat haters named Nature_Proponent and Reality Bytes.

In this February article, I kept comments open for awhile until those two (who post within MINUTES of each other, leading me to believe they’re the same person) had the family of a sweet little 7-year-old boy named Kaleb Brooks, who does work to benefit the cats in his area, fearing for his safety. Michael has also written about him.

I opened the article back up long enough to make screenshots of the comments in question and copy the text, then closed it again so no comments can be made. Unfortunately, I don’t have the privilege of removing some comments and leaving others. That’s why I love writing for PoC, because Michael can control what goes on his website.

Here are the screenshots (the reproduced comments are below them):

“Instead of praising this little ignorant hellish demon they should instead give him some mandatory lessons in matters of ecology and biology. All he is doing now is helping to destroy the very planet upon which his own future and life, and the lives of all others, depend.
If your cats were only destroying invasive species (cats themselves being a noxious invasive species), then nobody would be complaining. But your vermin cats destroy anything that moves. Letting a cat roam free is absolutely no better than intentionally throwing rat-poison around on everyone’s property to kill any living thing. Your man-made vermin cats are now driving hundreds if not thousands of species of native animals to EXTINCTION across the whole planet. Have you no conscience nor morality left?
Apparently gutting-alive and skinning-alive animals with everyone’s vermin cats, tortured to death just for your cats’ play-toys and YOUR entertainment, no other reason, is perfectly acceptable to you. Yeah, you’re all fine upstanding “animal-lovers” who respect all other lives around you and all other life on earth, aren’t you.

Let’s thank these psychotic bible-home-schooled cat-licking cretins for all the fine work they do for being such fantastic “animal lovers”, shall we? THEY JUST LOVE CATS SO MUCH! So caring! So thoughtful! So intelligent! So FULL of love for living things! So much so that they will even sacrifice whole races of humans to death-by-birth-defect to prove how much they love their cats.
I’d love to thank them all, each with a gift of a solitary-confinement prison-cell — FOR LIFE. Better yet, for their VAST ecological crimes and sins against all of nature and all of humanity, hanged-until-dead would be a far more fitting “gift” for them AND the whole planet. That used to be the punishment for engaging in bio-warfare against the human population and all other animal life in any country. I say bring it back — special, just for them.”

Reality Bytes

“You’re right. Rotting away in a prison-cell for life is too good for these fools. If anyone wastes even one more penny or even one more minute out of their lives in having to deal with them and their cats, that will be one more minute and one more penny far too much already. It’s time to haul them in and give them every punishment they deserve under all national and international bio-terrorism and bio-warfare laws. That’s usually a capital offense. Over and done with them all.”

Your thoughts?

Readers, after reading these two comments, would any of you consider this a cyber threat against a minor? Should this be reported to anyone with the ability to act on these comments, and to whom? Am I just taking these comments out of context? Imagine if your 7-year-old child or grandchild knew this had been said.

PoC will continue to get many of my articles where comments have to be regulated. I just think it’s sad that anyone can be filled with so much hate, and direct that hate towards a child.

Note: sources for news articles are carefully selected but the news is often not independently verified.

    It is so sad and naive that the Woodys of the world think all cats are destroying the ecosystem. What would the planet be like if there were no people to control animals the way these Woodys think they should be controlled? Probably running smoothly just like before humans came on the scene. Humans seem to have the knack for ruining everything they touch. Nature is created so that it runs itself.

    I just learned I have a dog troll now! I’m so LUCKY! I have a cat AND a dog troll. He goes by Sam Sims and thinks dogs are coming to shoot him!

    You think that clown is bad… you should see some of the ones on a FB page called: Empty Cages Worldwide Even tho..the page does it’s best to care about animals (all animals). There are those who post there (hunter’s mostly) who get their panties in a twist when I tell them what I think of them. One specific picture come to mind of a scum bag in Australia that shot a feral cat in the stomach with a bow & arrow and posted a pic of himself posing with this poor cat. Well, ECW posted that pic….many people thought the guys was a scum bag and I made that known. BUT .. there were a bunch (mostly from there too) sticking up for him (mind you every single one of them are hunters). They take some sick perverse joy in killing feral cats there. Even tho I made so many arguments as to try a different way (they don’t care). I swear they’re all retards…you should see some of the stuff they spew. It’s worth a laugh..but also you’d be appalled by their lack of compassion. Anyway, if you ever get a chance..it’s a facebook page called Empty Cages Worldwide (especially the one post with the creep in camo and his trophy pic dead feral cat).

    Yep, that’s Woody. I saw him over on One Green Planet earlier this year. Same stupid rant that was as long as War and Peace. And one time he either had a buddy or created another sockpuppet so he could pretend he was a 16 year old serial killer in training. It’s so cute when they post multiple times while repeating those buzzwords and they think nobody recognizes them. Funny thing about these trolls, they latch onto words like “vermin” or “noxious invasive species” and repeat them over and over again.

    • I have always said he is like one of those old vinyl records when the needle got stuck. Repetitive and utterly boring.

      • Serbella McGee says:

        That’s true. The first time I read his comment I became angry. I was bored by the time I read the third comment. Shock value coming from an insane mindset wears thin pretty quickly.

        There’s another one on You Tube, Christopher something, who apparently has a pretty high opinion of himself. He posted on a vid about that bow hunting Lindsey freak, grandly proclaimed that everyone who read his post should immediately take their pet cats to the vet and have them euthanized. Another one who could benefit from talk therapy and heavy duty anti-psychotic meds.

        • Elisa says:

          He gets boring because he repeats himself OVER and OVER and OVER. I felt the same. There’s actually more to the comment but I shortened it because it would have tripled the length of this article.

    • Elisa says:

      My daughter was reading one of the Examiner articles I left open and she said it has about 500 comments and its mostly him. Oh well, as long as no one complains to me he can keep ranting there. LOL.

  5. Elisa says:

    I think it’s hilarious that he thinks we’re the same person. And my cats live solely indoors and don’t kill anything. So I have no clue where he’s getting his info from. 🙂

    • Dee (Florida) says:

      Oh no, Elisa! You have a dual personality called Elisa and Irish? LOL! How ever will Woody keep up with both of you and still find time to rant at the rest of us?

      • Elisa says:

        I’m friends with Irish. She’s a great person and a fellow feral colony keeper. I just don’t know where he got the lame-brained idea we’re the same person.

        But I think I have a few dual personalities. Furby and Sealy.

        • You are a mother earth figure. You’re everywhere.

          • Elisa says:

            I think you’re right. Tonight I’ve already done a dog being killed because the shelter adopted him out to the wrong person. I’m working on Pinterest boards now for shelter cats and dogs in Greenville. Then someone wants an article for cats found in a box somewhere and needing a home. Then I have a few time’s up for the local shelter articles. Then I’ll check out the Senior Pets boards and pick a few of those to write on. And I think I have a few YouCaring rescue pages I need to promote. ALL in the next 4 hours!

            • Betty Louhoo says:

              Whatever would Elisa do without having dead and suffering animals to exploit for her own personal financial gain. 🙂

  6. Irish says:

    Omg,that freak sounds like a threat,so sorry Elisa ye are going through this!

  7. Betty Louhoo says:

    Amoral and criminally reprehensible doesn’t even begin to describe your kind.

  8. Betty Louhoo says:

    So now Elisa/Irish is going to throw children in the line of fire as her defense for all the animals she tortures and destroys with her cats. When do you start picking up babies and hold them in front of you as your last defense? LOL

    • jan says:

      Betty Looney with all the kids who commit crimes you should be praising a 8 year old who volunteers at the animal shelter and collecting food for cats and dogs in need to donate to the Christian Ministry food bank. We work with this child every weekend and had to pull his birthday story because of fools like you!

  9. Alison says:

    Yes that is for sure. I wish I had had that knowledge at that age.Kaleb deserves the best in life and being able to ignore idiots and get on with what your doing is very important.

  10. Alison says:

    Keep up the good work Kaleb and don’t listen to negative idiots that have nothing better to do.anyone who says that about a young boy who is doing good isn’t worth listening to anyway. Cats are beautiful animals and I have 4 of my own and I love them dearly..a great article elisa.

    • Elisa says:

      At least Kaleb is learning about idiots at a young age. Maybe he’ll be more prepared than the rest of us were.

  11. Alan says:

    Sounds very much like “Woody” to me, not a coincidence maybe?

    • Elisa says:

      I think it’s Woody as well. He spouts gibberish. I just hate that he directed it toward a 7 year old. Shows just how low he will go.

      • I have a feeling there is more than one Woody. He gives us something to fight and get fired up about. That ain’t a bad thing except the comments they made are immoral and obnoxious.

        • Elisa says:

          Oh Lordy! What if all the Woody’s get together for one big zombie Woody apocalypse! Get out your bows and arrows ladies! Aim for the brain! Oops, we’re DOOMED because Woody doesn’t HAVE a brain!

        • Dee (Florida) says:

          There are a lot of Woodys out there. But, there is only one here in many disguises.

          • I think you could be correct. Think how long he stays on his computer trolling cat websites! He must spend all day messing around with his trolling. I suppose all the others have banned him. I’ve banned him about 50 times 😉 .

            • Elisa says:

              If Woody had any REAL intelligence he’d start his own ranting blog and sell advertising space and gather all of the cat haters to his site and make money off of them. Instead he posts on a cat lovers site where he doesn’t make a dime. Not only is Woody a pathetic troll, he’s a pathetic troll with no business sense.

              • Betty Louhoo says:

                Lucky for me, and all like me, we know that we have our morals still fully intact…….(remainder deleted as it insults Elisa).

                Woody, I will delete all your comments if you insist on insulting people. Stop it – Michael
