    I just saw on Yahoo News that "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Erin Andrews is receiving death threats! As far as I know she hasn't done anything to warrant THAT kind of treatment. Does anybody know anything?

    It's bad enough that people watch shows like that, but to take it that seriously? Wow. :rolleyes:

    I was shocked when I found out that Sir David Attenborough has received death threats because he made a documentary about Charles Darwin.

    She got my letters! :evil:

    See, what reality t.v. does.

    Who wrote death threats to Laverne and Shirely...well, besides me?

    And I was young, they were in crayon. Seems silly now.

    Alice deserved her threats, though. Mel should've beaten her and Flo's asses. And tossed that ditzy broad into the path of an oncoming bus.

    Damn straight. He should have settled their hash. Instead,he kissed their grits. Bah. No wonder he couldn't run that mobster planet all by himself.

    People are super-creepy. I don't get the death threats and stalking, and I don't think it's necessarily a coincidence that prominent women are being targeted. I worked at a gym complex with competitive gymnasts, and everyone there has stories about some creeper with a camera sitting alone and getting thrown out of meets for excessive zooming. One of the Olympians from 2008 had a bigtime stalker---dude got busted with duct tape and shotguns in his car and everything.

    I got a death threat once but the punctuation was wrong so I ignored it.

    Sports "journalist" (seriously, can they be called journalists? anyway) who made news last year when a video featuring her hit the internet. It was taken through a keyhole or something in her hotel room, and they were freaking out about it, thinking it was taken while she was here for the baseball college world series. But it wasn't. Dunno if they ever caught the guy who did it.
