On one of my hubs, I have been harassed for the last year by a company called PrePaid Legal. They are trying to force me to take down the hub and they have finally admitted that they will not stop "harassing" me until I take it down and that they are "ganging up" on me.
For whatever reason, they are determined to harass me. Just me, on one hub, writing about my experience with their company. The hub only sees about 150-300 views a day so I hardly call myself a threat to their company that they say is ooober successful which seems to indicate that they are "personally attacking" me.
They don't personally like me and they have gotten personal several times over the last year and they say the only way they will stop is if I take down the hub.
Is there something I can do?
Take it up a notch and get as many of us as possible to make a legal services hub that points up the issues with this company and really spread the word.
keep all written responses from them and contact a lawyer, if you can, record phone calls also. The first visit is usualy free, if it is worth doing they will tell you, and probly offer to take the case.
I'd get real advise from a pro about it. Protect yourself. Law can be odd sometimes, and not the way a lay person looks at it. So please be carefull.
If you hire a lawyer, hire one that has gone to court and has experience. Some just arbitrate a settelment, and they get all the money in fees. So protect yourself well. Get a mean one!
best wishes, hope you win it.
Generally speaking, in order to sue for harassment, the party bringing the action must prove damages.
There are other options for people being harassed (injunction, cease & desist, protection order, etc.), but you will need an attorney to assess your particular situation and decide what, if any, will work for you.
I cannot ethically (or legally) give you legal advice, just legal information. So, apply the above information as you see fit.
Please contact an attorney if you feel you need to do something about this.
seems to me the most practical thing to do would be to take the frickin hub down and mail it to the perpetrator.
I would consult an attorney just to see what could be done.
If it's really bad, as you are saying it is, then I would say you have a case.
Good luck with it though.
Hire a professional harasser, so he will harass them back
If seriously, just ignore them Your Majesty. Delete their comments on your hubs, and if there is a pattern to IPs they use report it to HP team for blocking. Or just delete the comments capsule.
If they comment regularly, they are doing themselves a disfavour because they are increasing the hub rating! )
Wow Kenny, when was last time you posted on the forums? Welcome back, brother
I know, it's been at least a year! Hi Kenny.

Okay, not actual robots.I have a hub about how my mom got into this company called Melaleuca and basically how hard it was for her to get out of a contract that she was in (one that she never heard, read, or signed.)Anyway, it's just a story, really.

For several months now (almost since I joined hubpages) I have been getting harassing, threatening and ridiculous comments from the same person. I originally encountered her in a forum, and she has not left me alone since. She repeatedly leaves me harassing fan mail, none of which has...

One of my hubpages has been targeted either by a 'gang' that is harassing me or one person who is very good at making up names and posting comment after comment. Is there any action I can take to make them go away or lock my comment box to people who are not Hubpages members? I might have to just...

I was looking at my stats today and noticed one of my hubs (Why Has Being A Liberal Become A Bad Thing?) had a nice spike in views. Found the source of this spike was a racist website. Can't find the link in there as most of the site is only password accessible. Really don't want...
