A gentle reminder

I don’t help people make bombs (exception given to the U.S. Military should they ask but that is exceedingly unlikely). And I don’t help idiots make explosives.

A case in point:

i want 2 get some hydrogen peroxide beacause can u send me some and how much will it cost i live in england by the way.

Hydrogen peroxide is used for many things. But if someone doesn’t know where to get it then almost for certain they want it for making explosives. Otherwise they would go to a retailer that specializes in that particular legitimate use and ask for the substance that performed the function they wanted accomplished. For example you would get acetone for removing paint at the paint store and ask for “paint remover”. Or you would get acetone from the cosmetic department of the drug store by asking for fingernail polish remover.

And why else would he find me (actually boomershoot.org/general/bombhelp.htm and then to blog.joehuffman.org) via this google query:

In particular this link should be of use to you: http://nobombs.net/brucel/explosivegraphics.html
And as near as I can tell you don’t live in England. You probably sent this message from NYC and certainly from within the U.S.
And furthermore if you can’t figure out how to get hydrogen peroxide on your own you are far too stupid to know how to build explosives without hurting some innocent person. I wouldn’t worry about you getting a Darwin Award but hurting innocent people I do worry about.

I may be wrong about him being from NYC. His email appears to have come from a dialup in NYC. His browsing appears to come in from the U.K.
