Being a woman, especially a woman of color, raises one's risk of cyber harassment - the intentional infliction of severe emotional distress through persistent online speech. The University of Maryland studied online attacks occurring on an Internet chat medium and found that users with female names received, on average, 100 "malicious private messages" - defined as those with "sexually explicit or threatening" language - for every four received by male users. User gender had a "significant impact" on the number of malicious private messages sent and "no significant impact" on other kinds of attacks, such as attempts to send files with viruses to users, the study said.

Alan B. Chmurny,a chemist with a Ph.D. from M.I.T., was "obsessed" with a former colleague and one day in April poured mercury, a toxic substance, into the heating and air-conditioning ducts of the woman's car, Howard County authorities said yesterday. More than a month later, police arrested the Frederick County man after a sting operation that included a night-vision camera and searches that revealed a vial of mercury in Chmurny's car and suspected locks of the woman's hair at his home.

Brothers Scott and Joseph Jacobson detailed several complaints, including being called "dirty Jew," "dumb Jew," "stupid Jew" and other anti-Semitic slurs by managers and co-workers while working at an office for Conn-X LLC, a cable TV service provider in Edgewood.

I agree completely with your editorial of Nov. 3 ("Mug-slinging campaigns in city were short on issues"). and would like to comment further. While it was quite a "mud-slinging" campaign of gigantic proportions, I wonder if anyone else noticed the two policemen in full uniform with the Moe election workers (parked cruisers in full view) at the community center on Election Day? While I fully support the police force exercising their political freedom, I thought that they should have been in "civvies" while doing so without the use of taxpayers' money for their transportation.
