It seems fairly common on the internet to see people in comments threatening physical violence or wishing physical violence upon individuals or groups of people, in ways that you rarely experience in face to face interactions. I have seen threats/wishes and experienced them based on political views, lifestyle choices, sexual orientation, religious views, race etc.

1. Have you ever threatened or wished physical harm on a person or group in internet comments?

Yes, I threatened/wished harm on a specific individual.

No, it is just messing around, who cares if I am mean, rude or violent? Everyone knows I don't actually mean it.
