'''Common Internet Tough Guy threats include:'''
* Libel lawsuits (that would immediately be thrown out of court).
** Lawsuits in general, especially if the two parties live in different countries.
** Bonus points if they threaten slander lawsuits instead.
* Extreme violence against one or more people.
* Extreme violence against the ''family'' of one or more people.
* Calling people's parents (works best against the young).
* When the ITG is also a {{Troll}} attacking the forum moderators/owners for suppression of the right to free speech (obviously this never works, as the First Amendment only protects against governments, as they'd know if they'd actually read it because "Congress shall make no law" is ''right at the beginning''.)
** A variation is when they threaten to use the U.S. Constitution or US statutes [[WeAllLiveInAmerica against non-American forum owners]].
** And, of course, it goes without saying that this sainted right is only for them and those viewpoints ''they'' express; they'll be quick as lightning to call for the banning of someone who expresses a viewpoint that ''they'' disagree with.
