Cyber stalking can get out of control, and in many cases does. I remember reading this case years back when AOL chat rooms were the thing, about a business man from Chicago who got into an argument online in a political chat room with a guy in England about the former PM, Tony Blair. The English guy totally supported Blair and this guy from Chicago was pointing out Blair's faults, which were many, and this Blair supporter completely went psycho on this guy in Chicago, threatening him and warning him he was gonna make his life miserable, and he did. This psycho got this American guys email address and other personal info, including work info, sending lewd and nasty emails to his friends insulting them all, and his family members too, who thought it was this guy in Chicago sending them. Just over a disagreement, this guy in England, made this Chicago guys life hard for several months, and eventually got him fired from his job. The Chicago guy tried to get AOL to do something, and they didn't. He kept riding AOL to get this British guys info for him, but AOL still did nothing, saying this guy in England's had his rights too. Finally, the Chicago guy, sued AOL, won a settlement. He bribed an AOL employee to get this British guys personal info. He checked it over and over to make sure it was the right guy, and it turns out it was, and used that info to find this guy in England. He went to the British guys home, and shot him in the head in front of his wife. The Chicago guy was awaiting trial at the time I read this story, so I don't know what came of it, as I never heard anything about it again. So yes. Cyber stalking can get out of control.

Ouch!

Well, I got a mild case of a cyber stalker on IMDB several years back. There were plenty of trolls on the Michael Jackson board there, but this guy went further than the others: He followed me to several other boards on IMDB, only to annoy me. He harassed me in threads about movies and TV shows, which had nothing to do with whatever I originally had discussed with him... I did my best to ignore him, but he still continued this long enough to make other people sense what was going on. Luckily though, he stopped his shenanigans after a while. (I wonder if his troll posts weren't removed by the administrators too.) And I don't believe that he followed me outside IMDB, thank goodness.

Isn't it so so brave of them top hide behind their computers and harass people? Most times I bet they are nothing more than coward losers that have no life and nothing better to do, and wouldn't have the guts to do anything to your face.

Oh, I definitely agree. Before the IMDB message boards folded, she followed me over here and made fun of the fact that I'd been posting somewhere else. Since then, I've been free of her--the first time in over 6 months!

Indeed. They might call you a loser, but who is the one acting like a bully behind their computer screen?

Unfortunately, I have myself given too many people like that too much of my time over the years. Because I want to defend myself and my opinions, and it often takes me a while to see if I can reason with people or not. But I've had to leave a few forums over the years, when I have come to realize that there's no use in even trying to have a proper conversation with some people.

Of course, I cannot condone the course of action that the Chicago man ultimately took-2 wrongs do not make a right-but in a sense the Englishman was tempting fate when he began attacking the other man, costing him his friends, his family and eventually his job. The poor man apparently just snapped.

And that man was also was a really sick person even by internet troll standard. They all seem to be pathetic jerks, who should get a life doing something other than bullying other people. Most of them can't harm you though if you leave the site and never return. But this person was a dangerous stalker rather than just a nasty but mostly harmless troll.

You never can know who to trust anymore. Once, you even suspected me
of having another account on here and using it to troll on here and it
temporarily caused problems between us until you found out it was Wreckless using one of many aliases-I hold no ill will toward you on that account. You were doing a fine job as moderator, like you always do, my friend.
