Cyber Bullying, Threats, and Harassment on HubPages
Advisory to My Readers:
One of my readers informs me that the person who is stalking and harassing me is now sending "vituperative" and nasty emails to him, in her insane campaign to slur, harass, and destroy me. Her internet activity and keystrokes are already being tracked with forensic tracking software by law enforcement agencies. Please report all such emails to Hubpages administration and/or forward the copies of her harassing emails to me so I can forward them to the FBI and to my local law authorities..
How to Deal with Stalkers
A Note to My Readers:
Over the past few days I have been the target of a vicious, mentally deranged, and abusive person who has plastered my Hub articles with filthy, harassing, defamatory, and threatening comments.
This person has also sent me emails threatening me with physical violence and has a long history of violence, abuse, alcoholism, and stalking and harassment.
I have wanted nothing to do with this person for the last 15 years because she is a violent, abusive alcoholic who has assaulted me and other members of my family here in Kentucky on multiple occasions. She has been warned to stay away from me, and that I do not want any contact with her whatsoever. However, she continues her stalking and harassment, regardless.
I want nothing whatsoever to do with her, I do not want her to contact me, nor to access my web pages, nor my web sites, nor to communicate with me by any means, whether electronic, digital, nor by phone or mail. She is a very negative and destructive individual and I do not want her influence in my life.
She has been warned in the past about TOS violations by AOL because of harassment and abuse in AOL chat rooms. She was in civil court as the defendant in a Harassment Restraining Order suit as recently as last June. She has been the instigator of many such situations involving harassment, abuse, and threats.
Her object is, and always has been, to destroy my life, discredit,
harass, and defame me. And though she has been warned of the
consequences of this harassment, stalking, and abuse, she continues to
stalk and harass me.
I have reported this person to HubPages administration and also to other pertinent service providers and to local law enforcement authorities, as well as to the FBI Internet Crime Division.
I hope for a speedy solution to this abuse very soon. I am currently working closely with local law enforcement, the FBI, and other service providers, to prosecute this person.
Cyber bullying, cyber threats, stalking and
harassment, are all crimes. Cyber bullying is punishable by up to 2
years in prison. Terroristic Threatening is a felony punishable by up
to 5 years in prison in the state of Kentucky. Stalking and harassment
are also crimes punishable by jail time.
It takes a very sick person to stalk and harass a person who has wanted nothing to do with them for the last 15 years.
In the past, this person has called my employers to tell them lies about me, in an attempt to get me fired. She has called my friends to tell them lies about me in an attempt to alienate my friends from me. She has been doing this to me for years.
She has lied about me to everyone I know, including members of my family. She is constantly investigating where I work, who my friends are, who I know, where I live, in order to continue to stalk and harass me. She tracks me down relentlessly, without ceasing, to renew her attacks on me, and to threaten and harass me, and has physically assaulted me several times, beating on me, and pulling big hunks of hair from my scalp, once sending me to the emergency room. I am not the only person she has done this to.
She has been doing all of this to me for the past 15 years, even though I do not speak to her and have nothing to do with her.
I am not the only person she has done this to. She has done this to past boyfriends, co-workers, to her friends, and to other members of her family. She enjoys harassing and destroying other people and will stop at nothing to achieve her sick goals.
I used to be scared of her. Now I just think she is pathetic.
Cyberbullying is when people use the Internet to harass, intimidate, embarrass, or demean others.
You may be able to sue a cyberbully for damages if you can prove defamation, invasion of privacy, or intentional infliction of emotional distress. Damages can include money spent on counseling, damage to the victim's reputation, or financial losses incurred by the loss of professional reputation or career as a result of the bullying or defamation.
If cyberbullying becomes severe and involves threats of violence, you should contact the police immediately. Some states have cyber harassment laws to prosecute offenders. You can also report the abuse to the Internet Crime Division of the FBI, to wiredsafety.org, to the individual's service providers, and to the administrators of forums or web sites where the abuse is occurring. The use of internet services and web sites always involves "Terms of Service" (TOS) and when these are violated, you can report the offender and have them banned and their IP address blocked from the site.
