Pranksters - where do you stop?

The Smoking Gun has an article on some pranksters who made prank phone calls and then shared the audio and video online.

They were not happy to play the mostly harmless pranks that we enjoyed listening to from radio DJs, they took it a few notches higher.

What resulted over the course of more than a year were prank calls that humiliated people and caused millions of dollars worth of damage. In one incident, the pranksters persuaded someone in a hotel room that a toxic gas had been leaked and they should smash the windows to let in fresh air.

It is mind blowing how the sense of anonymity can give a person permission to ride roughshod over ordinary people like this.
