THE CONTINUING ADVENTURES OF CAPPY NICK 

The recent dustup between Nick Coleman and Jay Rosen was mostly old wine in new skins for longtime Nick watchers. But Rosen made one jaw-dropping revelation near the end of the string of comments:
From Wednesday afternoon to Thursday evening I received 15 abusive e-mails from Coleman. I printed only the first one; the others have much richer material for his "fans" out there.

He said he was contemplating retaliation in his column, and said he would follow up with my university-- the kind of threats that the right wing crazies make when they get going on "leftist academic" this and "you liberals" that.
Coleman has a history of writing nasty e-mails to those who have the temerity to disagree with him. But fifteen? To the same person? In a day and a half? Sheesh.

The comment string also revealed that Mark Gisleson has a gift for irony, as he devoted three comments totalling over 900 words to the position that Coleman should be ignored.
