Comment Craziness

Ok, so i've been away from a PC for a couple of days, and now i'm back. Checked my e-mail and what do I see? A barrage of mostly idiotic and occasionaly bigoted comments. I have had to warn people from a certain site before, that racist, sexist or homophobic comments will not be tolerated here. We just don't like them, and frankly, being a technology news site, we never thought we'd have to deal with them. Commenting has now been limited to registered users. So if you want to leave those kinds of comments, you'll have to be brave enough to do it under a real name. By the way, all the comments were left on this post, just in case you wondered who was responsible.
Here's an example of one of the comments:
"N00B LUE OWNS YOU DONT MESS WITH US YOU WILL BE TAKING THE BIGGEST RISK OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU MESS WITH THE BEST YOU WILL DIE LIKE THE REST *prepare the box cannons*".
I have read up more on LUElinks, it seems that they use a free box delivery service to send lots of empty boxes to their 'enemies'. So, is that a death threat from LUElinks? If so, it seems they need little or no provocation, merely mentioning them is enough to warrant one. Or is it a threat that I will be sent empty boxes? If so, bring it on, I have to move house soon, they'll come in handy.
