That, or if they're close enough geographically, a sound pummelling. I
had 'skillz' back when I was pirating Apple II software (yes, I'm old) but
now my skills are more design-oriented.
When writing my reply to him, I was tempted to sink to his level... with
"Oh yeah, punk?" and "I've got friends too, pal!" but it's all stupid
posturing. The easiest way to beat someone at that game is to make them try
to play yours.
So I've got an email threat of a hack, a definite email address... his ISP
will shut him down, and if I raise enough of a stink, would help me press
charges for mischief (or worse) if his threats ever came to fruition.
But as I said, the most effective threat is to tell his mommy and daddy
what he's doing with his computer.
