Moderator of /r/DirectedEnergyWeapons mysteriously bursts into flames outside home after yelling about severe directional heating. Local authorities say delusions are responsible for the smoking corpse. "He just hallucinated himself right into being on fire", said a local eye witness to the event.

I've dealt with them by: pushing the bullies into walls, publicly shaming their behavior, mocking their world view, telling their mother, verbally eviscerating them in front of their peers, and threatening them. Deterrents work great if you're able to communicate your capabilities to the bully, without getting yourself arrested in the process.

Classic psychological projection. The favorite tool of establishment politics and rhetoric.

No cannon fodder when there are no cannons left, once this guerrilla operation is complete, friendo!

How to even build a fire without capital? Without firestarters? How can your fire be real if your capitalism don't even real. Checkmate, anarchists.

Works with offensive insults too. If your narcissistic conservative family are acting like repugnant idiots and you tell them to hang themselves, some judges will allow them to claim they were afraid for their life, also allowing the issuance of an ex parte "Protection Order". Washington state courts stripped me of my firearms and made me homeless in 2018, having never once spoken to me to vet any of my family's claims in the original order. There are very few defense attorneys that will do anything but tell you to comply with the unvetted court order.
These orders are being abused, and their usage was up 250% in 2018 in Washington. Will 2019 see similar growth around the nation for surrendered firearms?

I'm a Bernie supporting atheist, and one of those protection orders was used on me by politically motivated conservative christians, last year. They are absurdly easy to grant with zero vetting process by the court. I'm urging Bernie and my democratic "representatives" to not support the current bills in the House, extended POs among them. They fix nothing while trampling rights.

Being on the receiving end of a protection order feels like this. What does this DV charge have to do with me? Insults towards repugnant behavior equals afraid-for-your-life fear now? Huh, I did not know that. Without SNAP food benefits, a state healthcare plan for free medication, and a homeless shelter, I wouldn't have gotten back on my feet again (just to get knocked down again by the same court, because I couldn't afford services). These passive-agressive ICE/court actions have huge and potentially life-ending consequences. I might be dead like him, not even in other countries, but in other US states.
The justice system took a huge shit all over my life, stripped me of my civil rights, and acted like I deserved it over an offensive insult. Being treated like you don't know what's best for you, by simpletons guided by their unquestioned feelings, isn't really an upgrade over death. Belligerent boomers being scared of their far-left children doesn't equal violence averted, in the same way that deporting people doesn't fix anything, while destroying lives.

Tor hidden service, another type of site extremists sometimes setup
Privacy tools like Tor == you're an extremist/terrorist now, Vice?
These tools have their legitimate uses, and are not purely the bastion of scoundrels. It's like saying the Hong Kong pro-democracy protestors must be terrorists because they choose to wear masks to conceal their identity.

Apparently that "hang yourself" is an insult, and not a threat?

I know something about this subject matter, through my research into electromagnetic shielding and earth grounding, that I've consolidated into a knowledge base at /r/emshielding and /f/emshielding (which needs updates). An earth ground is an electrical engineering concept, and one built into all of our homes, in the form of the grounding hole in electrical outlets. That round hole (versus the slotted holes to create an electricity circuit/loop) connects via a copper ground wire (in standard US romex wiring), to either a cold water inlet pipe, or to a grounding rod. Both serve to drain away charges connected to the ground wire/hole.
If this article does indeed have a scientific basis, I want to point out that one does not need to "walk barefoot" to gain the described benefits. One must only run a copper wire from the ground hole in an electrical outlet to a point on their body, to perhaps an ESD grounding wrist/ankle strap.

I've been using a Volcano (Storz & Bickel) for years to vaporize cannabis flower. Switching to a vaporizer is a huge amount of organ harm reduction vs smoking, and could mean, if you're an enthusiast, the difference between growing a cancer tumor and not.

I can't find english coverage. Who are they? Are they from a specific dissident group? Are the Hong Kong police taking pointers from corrupt Mexican police, and executing protesters as contract hits? An unspoken: "no foul play, watched my officer partner throw them!"?
