An internet user has been found guilty of what police said was Britain's first "web-rage" attack.
Paul Gibbons, 47, tracked down John Jones using details obtained online after the pair exchanged insults in an internet chatroom, a court heard.
He travelled 70 miles to Mr Jones' home in Clacton, Essex, and beat him up with a pickaxe handle in December 2005.
Gibbons, of Southwark, south London, admitted unlawful wounding and will be sentenced on 7 November.
Interestingly the chatroom was called Yahoo, Islam 10.
You couldn't make it up really-the confluence of the mindless rage of the British underclass and Islamic amour propre. This is why the Al-Qaeda tactic of prison recruitment is so successful, so many of the underclass are filled with unfocused rage (for details consult this wonderful book).
One convert is suppose to have said: "it's wonderful...you don't 'ave to fink any more. Vey even tell yer what hand to wash yer bum wiv."
