      Hi Jack,

      Being the charity fundraising guru that you are, i wish to ask for your expertise.

      I want to livestream a charity event for the Syrian Refugees. I want to know what resources do i need look up to know how to set up the tools (such as buttons on the live stream and the notifications for when someone donates). I was hoping you would be able to point me to the right direction.

      I'm not an expert. I don't have millions of followers. I'm just trying to raise money for a cause. Thanks

      --Mahmoud

      Hey Jack. I've been wondering something - how did you and Geoff meet?

      So 343 isn't doing split-screen for halo 5. I think this is ridiculous since it has been in every halo game up to now and so many people love halo for that fact. People love playing with their friends on the same screen and it is one of the few split-screen games left. I found a petition online to save it. Would be awesome if maybe you could mention it during AHWU or something!

      Congrats on 500k subscribers! I can't wait for the Magic: The Gathering video, since I shamelessly play on a regular basis.

      Also, I enjoyed your first LEGO video. I miss my LEGO days.

      Supreme Court Opinion Makes Prosecution of Internet Trolls More Difficult

      *Disclaimer – I am not licensed to practice law. The following is a reflection of my reading of a Supreme Court opinion, and should not be relied on by anyone. I am not advertising my services, seeking compensation, or looking for notoriety: I am offering an explanation of the significant legal principles as I seem them for informative purposes.*

      Today the Supreme Court ruled in Elonis v. United States that a law often used to prosecute internet users who make threatening comments over the Internet could not be used unless the perpetrator knew the language to be threatening. Prior to this ruling, most courts held that an internet threat is illegal if a reasonable person (e.g. the person being threatened, other site-users) would feel threatened. The court today, however, found this rule was not an accurate interpretation of the statute, and required that any person convicted of making internet threats must be “blameworthy in mind before he can be found guilty.†While this ruling is a win for internet users who say the threats they make over the internet are intended for therapeutic or cathartic reasons, I am concerned that Internet threats are often made in passing while read quite seriously, making prosecution difficult under any other interpretation. This ruling requires authorities to demonstrate that a threat was made to be taken seriously, or at least made with the awareness that it might be taken seriously—a more difficult standard to prove unless the defendant admits what he or she was thinking when the threat was made.

      The facts of the case are that Anthony Elonis was arrested for 5 counts of violating 18 USC §875(c) which makes it a crime to transmit “any communication containing any threat to injure the person of another.†The statute was enacted in 1939 to apply to telecommunications that existed at the time, but is still used for federal prosecutions regarding threats made over the internet. Elonis made threats towards his coworkers, resulting in his termination from the amusement park where he worked. He also made threats against his wife, saying “Fold up your [Restraining Order] and put it in your pocket/ Is it thick enough to stop a bullet?†and providing details to the public on his Facebook page detailing what he believed to be the most effective way to fire mortar rounds at his wife’s home and not get caught. He made threats against Police; as well as an FBI agent that visited his house about the threats, posting to his Facebook after the incident “So the next time you knock, you best be serving a warrant/ And bring yo’ SWAT and an explosives expert while you’re at it/ Cause little did y’all know, I was strapped wit’ a bomb/Why do you think it took me so long to get dressed with no shoes on?/ I was jus’ waitin’ for y’all to handcuff me and pat me down/ Touch the detonator in my pocket and we’re all goin’.…†Finally, Elonis commented on another Facebook user’s post, “That’s it, I’ve had about enough/ I’m checking out and making a name for myself/ Enough elementary schools in a ten mile radius to initiate the most heinous school shooting ever imagined/ And hell hath no fury like a crazy man in a Kindergarten class/ The only question is… which one?â€

      At trial, the jury was instructed that Elonis was guilty of breaking the law if a reasonable person would have understood that the posts he was making were real threats, which are not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Elonis argued that the word “threat†indicates that he must purposefully or knowingly make the threat to cause someone to feel threatened; a fact which was not determined at trial and which Elonis argues he did not intend. The government argued that Elonis’s purpose in making the argument did not matter because the statute does not require “an intent to threaten†only that the communication includes a threat. The trial judge agreed with the government’s argument, thus instructing the jury that Elonis was guilty if a reasonable person would have understood his words as threats. The Supreme Court overruled this jury instruction, sending the case back to a lower court to determine if Elonis was guilty based on some other interpretation of the statute.

      The lower court now must consider whether to adopt Elonis’s interpretation of the statute and require that internet threats be made with the purpose or knowledge of being threats in order to be illegal. If this interpretation is adopted, Elonis is less likely to be convicted because the jury is more likely to take him at his word that he did not intend—and did not know—that anyone would take his posts seriously. The Court could also choose a middle ground between Elonis’s and the Government’s argument by applying the standard of recklessness. Elonis recklessly threatened his victims if: 1) He had a substantial awareness that his words might be taken as threats; and, 2) A reasonable person would have understood that Elonis’s words were threats. This interpretation would likely result in a conviction because the jury would be allowed to infer that while it may not have been Elonis’s purpose to threaten, and while he may not have been certain that his words would be taken as threats, he must have at least been aware that his victims might interpret his words as threats. While the recklessness standard is likely to result in a conviction, the recklessness standard is more likely than the purposeful or knowing standard to be found a misinterpretation of the statute (again) or an unconstitutional burden on Elonis’s right to free speech. The Supreme Court has not offered a definitive ruling, only saying that the method used in this case of interpreting a threat through the eyes of the threatened (the same way most lower courts had interpreted the law) is incorrect and must be retried.

      Obviously, the legality of Internet threats is an important issue to anyone interested in safe, well-meaning, and healthy Internet ecosystems. This case highlights the difficulties in prosecu

      Jack,
      You may not read this but there is a girl in Rhode Island that is a huge fan of all things RT. Last year she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease and has been unable to do the things a normal girl should be able to do. Tomorrow, Wednesday May 13, is her 16th birthday. She will not be able to celebrate it as she should due to her disease. Furthermore, tomorrow she will begin using IV bags that will make her feel like she has the flu. I have talked very briefly with her and she asked me to contact you to thank you (for what exact purpose I do not know), and said to ask for a temporary follow on Twitter @Lindsey_Clark11 or a friend request on this site. Her RT username is lindsey_11. What I am trying to do with this message is make her tomorrows featured user, but I don't know if I'm too late to make that deadline. I encourage you to please read the rest of her story as she said it on her Tumblr loserwithlyme.tumblr.com/

      Upon reading Fragger's journal about the situation, i wanted to let you know that I have a lot of respect for what you did to help resolve the situation and not only just that you did it, but the emotion described by Fragger is honorable, I admire the fact that you didn't just do what you had to do to take care of the situation, but the genuine anger(as described by Fragger) about what was done that showed a lot about the amount of concern you had for the well-being of that particular community member, as an aspiring Marine Corps officer, when I saw that, I knew that what you and Geoff did will stick with me for a long time as I learn what it means to live and do things in service of others, especially when concerning very bad situations and people. What you do for the community is greatly appreciated
