    I think we're using the wrong metaphors here. A community lynching
    would be storming his datacenter and setting his servers on fire. That
    didn't happen.

    A better metaphor would be a rowdy patron in an upscale bar attempting
    to deal drugs and being tossed out by the bouncer. Although dealing
    drugs is illegal, the people in the bar are more concerned about getting
    rid of the jerk than throwing his butt in jail (although that would be
    nice as well).

    If law enforcement is busy with gang warfare in another part of town,
    their priority in responding to a rowdy in a bar is going to be low,
    especially if there's a bouncer who is capable of dealing with the problem.
