I can say I have seen no threats against Tillman here. Now that could be bad memory on my part, but that kind of thing would stand out.
Whoops, forgot. You would be surprised what I can manage to forget in a couple years., or hell, a couple days..

Anyway, wasn't suggesting anything took place here just that an average reader wouldn't necessarily see any of it if it did.

Also, that there seems to be a huge difference in perception of what constitutes a threatening comment depending on if the person is the focal point for that comment. People tend to downplay comments that are not directed specifically at them. Which also results in people being more likely to direct threatening comments at others and not fully realize the ramifications of that unless they've received the same in the past.
