There are a few guidelines to being a successful blogger: Update frequently. Promote your posts on social media. And don't describe Sen. Joe Lieberman as "one Jew, who we absolutely must shoot in the face (many times), ASAP."
We don't know how well Dmitry Dyatlov, a 23-year-old I.T. guy in Philadelphia, adhered to the first two guidelines in his blogging at "Competitive Collaboration" (the "Guiding Principles" of which include one quote from Elton John and one from Warhammer). But we do know that he didn't follow that last guideline particularly well at all, and was arrested by the FBI last week over it.
In the incoherent post—which was apparently about Rammstein concerts?—that caught the FBI's attention, Dyatlov outlined three reasons to shoot Lieberman in the face:
one of my buddies called it an almost "religious" experience in high school. Why not?
actually, there is, at least, one Jew, who we absolutely must shoot in the face (many times), ASAP: Joe Lieberman
2. doesn't like Marilyn Manson (or Eminem)
3. Someone put this retard on the "SECURITY" committee.. OMG WE'RE FUCKED
but dont do it just cuz *I* said it (do it because it's the right thing to do, right now)
Apparently a coworker called police to alert them to the post after Dyaltov "stopped showing up for work" and the FBI busted him. Though he says he has no intent to kill Lieberman, he wouldn't care if someone else did; all in all, he sounds like a trip:
According to court documents, Dyatlov had more to say to the agents before they finished the interview. "I'm gonna leave you gentlemen with a final thought. In order to fix the system you sometimes need to break the system." Agents asked Dyatlov if he said that as a threat. "It is what it is," he replied. After asking again, Dyatlov said he didn't mean it to be a threat, according to McQueen.
That, my friends, is what I believe you call a "slow burner." Dyatlov is likely to be released with an electronic monitoring bracelet pending his trial.
