Re: Swatting : The New Gaming "Prank"

Looking on input on how we should handle this story. Should we merge the threads? And if so, what is the right forum for them?

Right now I'm leaning towards leaving this as the main swatting thread and leaving the Otter thread to discuss that particular case.
