How will you react to a bully who just pop out to chat?

    There was this guy from out of the blue who just pop out to chat with me in yahoo messenger. He said that we know each other and hd chatted long time ago. At first I cannot really remember him but when he mentioned that he came from LinkedIn then that reminded me. So I bear with him though for me he was such a predator in disguise; prying on my marriage relationship, so I asked him to just leave me alone because I didn't like to "philosophize" with him. He got mad and said all those "street language" that literally made me sick. My internet phobia came back to me and I started crying.
    What am I supposed to do? I am scared of these types of people in the net and this is the reason why I surround myself with a "wall" that I sound unfriendly. I like to have many friends for as long s they are civil enough to be worth my friendship.

    That's why there are "block" and "report" buttons on most sites.

    It's important to realise that the internet allows many people the anonymity to do as they wish - so you need to protect yourself from those who don't have the best intentions.

      Thank you, you are right; I know that I am really stupidly careless lots of times and this care-free attitude bring me so much trouble until I become "hardened" as a result, I cannot think in advance that there are people who abuse others or who would abuse me. I had "blocked that guy...I have no names in my list of friends except my husband's; so I am sometimes caught unguarded when these pop-ups just appear in no time.
      Yes, I think that I should be more vigilant. Thank you.

    Tell him to look in the mirror when he uses his street language, apparently he has no self respect!
