Never pay extortion anyways. After you pay once, you¹ll pay again.

If I were you, I¹d pay someone a few bucks to pull this kids dox and drop
them on pastebin. Stainless Steel Testicles turn to itty bitty testicles
when your name and phone number are sitting on the internet. Or just write
back to him and tell him that if you don¹t stop being packeted, you¹re
going to take his mother to a nice seafood dinner and NEVER call her
again. What¹s he going to do, packet you? ;)
