Death Threat received - Moroccan ISP doesn't respond
On 8/2/2002, I received the following death threat:

The idiot from above turned out to be a looser from Morocco. The Izz el-Din al-Qassam Brigades are murderers from the Palestinian Hamas ("Islamic Resistance"), a terrorist group dedicated to the destruction of Israel, and the genocide of her citizens.
I traced back the message to the IP address 184.108.40.206, which belongs to a Moroccan ISP called "Maroc Telecom" (www.iam.ma). I sent the ISP two messages but received no response, not even an acknowledgement of receipt.
The message was sent through a French Web mail service, caramail.com, which is similar to Hotmail.com. Unfortunately, I received no response from caramail.com either.
So much for French and Moroccan respect for the rules of law.
