"Phone balls". "Phone balls" is when you have the courage to say things to people over the phone, but can't actually "man up" and say it to their face.
The internet has this as well. "Keyboard balls".
An example of "keyboard balls": all the little flamers, haters, trolls and other lacking-proper-social-skill idiots who have nothing better to do than to hide behind their keyboard, and channel all their misplaced rage and anger over their wasted-excuse-for-a-life at people they do not know.
A better example...
It is no secret that there are some people that don't like me. For a handful, their anger is justified (they sold bootlegs and I busted them, they copied entire web sites and I busted them, they flamed the hell out of people on web forums and I banned them, et cetera). What is real fun is when one of them decides to email you, attempting to rip you a new one (and usually failing). I received a new, unique version of this type of email yesterday. Here is a complete copy paste (including email and IP address - have fun!):

Hello Mr. Daniel Barassi,
We hope to see you this or next year in Europe because we want to do something with you.
A few groups in different countries have enough from you. Your last action with the press conference etc.
Be sure that in a few countries people know how you look because we post some pictures of you.
When somebody see you on a concert we will give you our love.
This trip will be a nightmare for you. Better you stay in your country.
But there its not safe for you to.
See you later idiot.
P.S. Donât worry when you cant come to Europe, we will find other ways.
Sharing Mp3 under your name and send the results to RIAA etc.

This is fucking pathetic. Some crazy Eurotrash who's all pissed off that they weren't picked for a contest wants to kill me? Are you fucking kidding me.
And I thought all the religious extremists in the United States were psycho.
"I didn't win a contest. Fuck! I will kill everyone responsible!"
To the douche who sent the email: put up or shut up.
To everyone else: have a pleasant Tuesday. :)
