This place is difficult for anyone, never mind one so young and out of time. He's doing great.
I really wish I could say that I was surprised by this revelation, but unfortunately I am not. I have seen such threats first hand now, although not directed towards me, it was alarming to say the least. Rest assured that I will be nipping anything of that nature in the bud, and if it happened behind filters or verbally, you just call on me. I know you wouldn't do so lightly.
I have hope that these threats are entirely empty ones, the product of a very troubled mind, but I understand your hesitancy.
