Legal definitions of blackmail vary, but here's one definition that certainly applies to the following message, received from markabba on my YouTube channel...
For now I'll just stress two points:
- The "conversations" Mark refers to were no different from millions of exchanges that take place daily - online, in pubs, factories, offices, lockerrooms, etc straight, gay, female or male, people discuss others they're attracted to. Believing this is something shameful or "dirty" is characteristic of early adolescence. The same applies to the "dodgy" links.
- If Mark threatens me this way, he can do the same to anyone. Any message you send him may be kept and used later to pressure you to comply with his demands. If you email or chat with him, remember that.
