If someone does choose to respond, however, then that is _their_ right.
A curious kind of "right", not recognized by most legislations or even international treaties. Not to mention philosophical systems or even religions (anything more sophisticated than the code of Hammurabi or the Old Testament's "an eye for an eye"). I thought that the civilized world had agreed long ago that outlawing such vigilante practices was "progress", but apparently regressions happen outside software too.
Now I will take the liberty of recommending you a movie: The Beast of War (1988), about an earlier Afghanistan war.
