Internet user admits 'web-rage'

An internet user has been found guilty of what police said was Britain's first 'web-rage' attack.

Paul Gibbons, 47, tracked down John Jones using details obtained online after the pair exchanged insults in an internet chatroom, a court heard.

He travelled 70 miles to Mr Jones' home in Clacton, Essex, and beat him up with a pickaxe handle in December 2005.

Gibbons, of Southwark, south London, admitted unlawful wounding and will be sentenced on 7 November.

Oh my! That's awful, guess you got to be careful what you say anywhere now of days. I guess the victim must have told him where he lived. For everything, there's some kind of rage attached to it.

Yeah, what a butthole! Imagine tracking someone down just because they said something you didn't like on the internet.

j/k Mr Paul Gibbons, sir.
