I suggest you should talk to the authorities, instead of WOT nerds :). You see, threatning like that is illegal :(

I wouldn't worry about a lunatic tracing your home address through your IP as the only one they get if they have the ways and means of tracing is the IP address(public IP) supplied by your IS supplier these IP address' change every 24 hours. And are not tied to your address, your Internet Service Provider however keeps a record of the rolling IP address' just in case of criminal prosecution by the powers that be. I would just block the user on MSN and report him for threatening behaviour.

he are 1 just a layer and troll  or 2 same but some body who already know you. There is no way to trace your ip trough wot and not sure if trough msn.

if some body in wot treated you and proves that know were you live it is some body who know you in real life.

ALOT thanks guys
