Default Ever Have Your Own Personal Troll?

My boss had one for 2 months. A stalker following him all over the net trying to make him look bad; throwing insults at him and threatening him. All because my boss made an apposing comment to him on a message board they both frequent.
I mean some people take the net too seriously. Anyway, my boss finally warned him that if he didn't stop, that my boss would locate him and file charges against him. He said to my boss, "Good Luck. It will never happen, but I may find you"

Well 1 week ago, my boss did find him. My boss's nephew is a computer genius and can find people on the web. When my boss sent his troll a message that showed his address and his name and even his age and where he worked, even the kind of car he drove, he immediately apologized and backed off. I hope that never happens to me.

I had been accused as a troll, but it wasn't me...it was them.

Good for your boss! I hate trolls.

The very same thing has happened to me on the IMDB. A woman found out my real name, followed me around from Ebay to Facebook and personal blogs, and even posted pictures of what she thought was my home! Meanwhile, she's remained anonymous. At one point, she found my mother's online obituary, took the pictures from it and began posting as my dead mother. How low can you go? I'd love to find out how to identity her. Any suggestions?

She's doing it right now, today! Because the IMDB message boards are going dark, she's upping her attacks. Just this afternoon, she claimed she'd been over here--posted all the appropriate links--and encouraged people to start crapping on me. Is this board monitored? Can someone like her post anonymously?

This board is monitored but you can right click your mouse and google search your image and that is where she got your name I guess.

If I were you I would change your avatar to an anonymous picture right away.

I don't even give out my real location as there are a lot of weirdos out there.

Did you use the same username and/or email address on all these sites?

Years ago on these boards someone created a user name similar to mine and posted a bunch of porn to make people think I posted it. Apparently, they actually thought it would get me banned.

It is very scary. And she posts on innocuous boards like The Goldbergs and The Middle, these long, whacked-out diatribes about me, where I supposedly live, my Facebook page and my dead cat, my Ebay account (she posted the link and encouraged people to bid on my auctions and leave me Negatives), and then the dead mother thing. I honestly don't know how anyone could be so low--I mean, there should be a smidgen of decorum. But this woman popped her mental cork in 2014, and she's yet to find it again. Personally, I'm very glad IMDB's message boards will go dark on the 20th, but she's threatening to come HERE and "tell them all" about me. Cripes! Hopefully, this place is moderated!

Yeah I've had a stalker, a few actually. Years ago I used to post on a message board, now defunct, about a rock band. People there would take my photos and stalk me online, "warning" people I was a troll. On one board I actually know several, and they blocked them. On a second board, I had someone find me on Facebook and post my photos on the message board. This is probably the creepiest but for several years on and off I did online dating. I was speaking to this guy on a dating site but he started getting weird. I told him I met someone offline (this is true) and deleted my profile. A year or two later I get a friend request and it was him! Apparently he found my profile from my photo, which I used to use on dating sites (I've since deleted the photo). I deleted this request and he immediately tried to friend me. He kept doing this and sending me messages saying he doesn't know why I'm so mean to him. I didn't respond and blocked him. He was 50, obese, a high school dropout and a janitor and honestly we wouldn't have anything in common so I don't want to lead him on. I realized one of my dating profiles was still online (though no photos or messages or anything) and saw he left a message not long ago. Yes I deleted that profile. I've considered doing online if the man I like isn't interested, but am afraid he'll try again and get weird when I reject him. He got weird when I politely let him down because I did find someone else saying no one wants him, blah blah.

Wow! That's really weird! I guess social media isn't all it's cracked up to be. I gotta wonder what motivates these people to go to such lengths. The woman who's trolling me posts numerous links in every one of her messages. She claims to have saved all my photos and postings in some kind of "photo bucket" folder somewhere. Plus, she's obsessed with "sock puppets" and constantly accuses me of having several...when I only have one account. I can't wait for IMDB to shut down, really. She's made it a miserable experience for me.

It sounds to me that you have a cyber stalker (or hacker) that has hacked into your computer. The reason I say that they have hacked into your computer is because they can follow you from site-to-site. You need to run a security scan (like malwarebytes)
