Best way to handle death threats from a Wikipedia editor[edit]

Is there any place where Wikipedia policies and guidelines deals with this subject? I haven't been able to find anything.

The death threats in my case appear to be targeted at my reverting of edits I consider to be extremely anti-Arab and non-NPOV (for example, "== You deserve to ₫ie for your support of genocidal Islamic settlers. == I will make sure you suffer greatly." and "I can arrange for you to die in Gaza. Keep it up, raglover." ). I therefore thought best way to deter whoever is making the death threats is by continuing to revert extreme anti-Arab non-NPOV edits (in the same careful, selective manner I have been doing, and always observing the one revert rule) to demonstrate the death threats have had no effect. Any suggestions? Gouncbeatduke (talk) 15:26, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Gouncbeatduke, you want Wikipedia:Harassment. Anything else, including any potential edit warring, is superfluous. --NeilN talk to me 15:32, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
If you need immediate action, you can report such threats at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. Blueboar (talk) 15:37, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
There is not much useful information at Wikipedia:Harassment. It seems once you email emergency@wikimedia.org and you get back the very polite letter explaining there is nothing Wikipedia can do about it, you are on your own. Maybe I could research this and help write something better. I certainly feel motivated. Gouncbeatduke (talk) 15:50, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
It looks like a start was made at Wikipedia:Threats of violence. --Redrose64 (talk) 17:12, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
