I guess call the local cops (if you know where those are), but I really wouldn't believe it. The internet is 99.999% trolls on these sorts of things.

Then warn everyone near the mall/school to carry their guns for self-defence.

Guess this question should be for the JT moderators to answer, not us posters. Likely, it would depend on where it was placed in the thread.

Bring it to the attention of the authorities, of course.

Really? Bust most free countries don't allow citizens to walk around with guns. Only America and Iraq.

Avoid that area and tell people I don't like to go there.

Actually this happened to me. A wacko said he was going to blow up a flight to Shikoku and was stupid enough to mention the flight and date. I notified a friend who works for JAL and they wouldn't let him board at Haneda. Never found out if he was actually busted for making threats, but I think he'll be taking the ferry (or bridge) to Shikoku for a while.

Notify the board owner/moderator and let them notify the police. Board owners can be held liable and should act.

What would I do?

Um, show up at the appointed time and place with video cameras set up in three different angles, tape the incident and sell the footage.

ka-CHING!

I would like to talk with the desperate person and to calm him down. Most people need attention and somebody to listen to their problems. They need to know they are not alone and there is somebody who understands their problems and supports them.

inform the police I guess... Better safe than sorry right? =0

Inform the company that hosts the blog that they should inform the authorities, since they would know from the IP address where the writer lives.

I would consult the site's moderators.
