"nor is what you said to be taken seriously"
It depends on who is reading the message I sent. They can take it seriously or decide not to.
"But if you are known, then threats carry more weight and your speech is restricted?"
My speech isn't automatically restricted, I personally would choose to restrict it, but I don't HAVE TO. Nor does anyone else.
And it's not that interesting of an argument it's quite common actually, just go to any forum and you'll see people talking without restraint and you'll also notice instead of a name they will only have a callsign like "Trollzorz"

Get it yet? I mean, I can't lower the bar beyond ducks and bunnies level here.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
