Another anonymous brouhaha, with people devolving to their primate inner children. The NY Times investigates this latest time waster on campuses and high schools:

Who Spewed That Abuse? Anonymous Yik Yak App Isn’t Telling

Lest anyone think they are actually anonymous from NSA and GCHQ, read the entire piece.

Most recently, in November, local police traced the source of a yak — “I’m gonna [gun emoji] the school at 12:15 p.m. today” — to a dorm room at Michigan State University. The author, Matthew Mullen, a freshman, was arrested within two hours and pleaded guilty to making a false report or terrorist threat. He was spared jail time but sentenced to two years’ probation and ordered to pay $800 to cover costs connected to the investigation.

Wonder what would have happened to him if he was Arab?
