In California, and I suspect many other states, the context is not
relevant. They spell it right out. You can't call somebody on the
phone and say, "I going to burn down your business, kill you, your
employees and their families". It's a felony, whether you "meant it
when you said it" or not. California Penal Code, Section 422.

P.S. Blocking "cloaked domains" is silly. It's just as cloaked
whether I rent a PO Box or PMB or use a service.
