    Default Wanker McKay Hatch and his fucking "No Cussing Club" attract a shitstorm of hatemail

    'No-Cussing' Club Attracts Followers -- and Thousands of Hate Messages

    FBI Takes Case After Teen Crusader Gets Death Threats (actually, the FBI refused to confirm this)

    By NED POTTER

    January 16, 2009 —

    McKay Hatch was on a mission. Bothered, he says, by the foul language he heard around school, he formed what he called the No Cussing Club (http://www.nocussing.com), and soon had thousands of followers from around the world.

    But then, on the Sunday after New Year's, his father checked the group's e-mail after church and found 7,500 unread messages -- some of them threatening, almost all of them filled with obscenities.
    McKay, a 15-year-old high school student from South Pasadena, Calif., has found himself the victim of a massive online attack, with people sending offensive e-mails and trying to crash the group's Web site. Strangers ordered pizzas sent anonymously to the family home in the middle of the night. The Hatches found their mail box clogged with porn magazines.

    All, says McKay, because he was trying to make the world a better place.

    "A lot of kids at my school, and some of my friends, would cuss and use dirty language all the time," he says. "They did it so much, they didn't even realize they were doing it. It bothered me so much that one day I challenged them to stop."

    The No Cussing Club grew from a school project to a national phenomenon. McKay appeared on dozens of news programs, was cited by Dr. Phil, and went to other schools to give inspirational talks.
    But then came messages such as this:
    "i am going to find you And mutilate you with a scalple" [sic]

    Or this:
    "Every time I see your stupid [expletive] braces on those stupid [expletive] teeth of yours on that stupid [expletive] face of yours I just want to kill you with my bear fists." [sic]

    Another message said, "Now, please, pack up your [expletive], and leave. You all are nothing more than [expletive], and should be treated nothing more than such."

    McKay says he can imagine he touched a raw nerve.

    "A lot of people were saying I was taking away their freedom of speech," he told ABC News by phone when he came home from school for lunch. "All I was trying to do was raise awareness."
    McKay's father, Brent Hatch, says his son has been brave -- but in one day he received 35,000 pieces of spam.

    "On the outside, he seems to be doing fine," Mr. Hatch told ABC News, "but last night he came home from soccer practice, and for the first time he started crying. We went out to grab a bite, just to get him out of the house."

    McKay said, "At first it was kind of scary, but then I realized they're just bullies, and they wanted me to be scared."

    McKay's parents have encouraged him in his quest. They themselves published a book a few years ago, "Raising a G-Rated Family in an X-Rated World." But they say they never expected their son to have to endure more than a few taunts.

    "I always give him the option to stop," Brent Hatch said, "but he says, 'No, this is my mission.'"

    The Hatches say they called the local police for help, and then the FBI, after death threats turned up on the home answering machine. (The FBI says, as a matter of policy, that it does not confirm or deny whether it is working on a case.) A Los Angeles law firm has offered help too, threatening to sue the Internet service providers whose systems have been used to attack McKay's effort.

    Amid all the abusive messages, there have been encouraging ones as well.

    "I just want to tell you that I think you are an amazing kid!!" wrote a woman from Canada. "It's a great thing you are doing here. And I am also going to try to cut out my cussing also. Thank you for that!!"

    Another person wrote, "You are our future and it is up to you to determine the course of our nation with good morals, values and standards. Thank you for standing up for what you believe in. Keep up the good work!"

    Brent Hatch says he's grateful how friends and schoolmates have come to his son's support.

    "Good is coming out of it, trust me," he said, "though it's sometimes hard to believe it when something like this happens."

    'No Cussing Club' Gets Blast of Obscenities

    So, what happens in this club? They hang around and don't swear? A look round the website makes it look more like it's designed to sell their shitty overpriced merchandise more than anything else. Dad's a motivational speaker/salesman which doesn't surprise me. I certainly don't endorse threats against this family(if indeed any have been made) but the whole idea that some words are 'bad' and that if you don't use them, the world will be a better place, is just sheer douchebaggery.

    And what better way to appeal to the youth of America than with a lame ass attempt at a rap video. Gosh, how cool!

    There are few things more annoying than mis-spelled hate mail. Even more annoying is when whomever wrote this caught some of the spelling mistakes and missed others. Fuck the swearing, learn to spell.

    It really bothers me when people misuse "whom".

    Who wants to bet he skimmed off the best of the porn for himself (and left the dregs for his daddy).

    Its a shame that this vid, etc is so lame because its quite a good idea. My friend has two boys into hiphop and she can't stand the M*therf*ck*er H* F*uck Yo-ness of it. She's not a goodie-goodie but she's trying to instill decency into her children....

    Yeah, words don't hurt, they don't incite people to violence, they don't hurt one little bit.

    I don't think so.

    Yeah, just words. Much the same as "fat", "useless" and "drain" are and they seem to cause some discomfort.

    Words are just words, meaningless until someone chooses to use them. Fuck can have many different meanings, not always an insult, and yet its one of the worst cuss words in many peoples book.
