I respect your rights, Sara. In my case, I'm working on a book and I have to use the Internet for networking and other important things are going on. I will not be run off or pushed around anymore. Sara, are you on my fans list?
I was stalked here on the hubs just two weeks ago by my former spouse and his sister in law, who, oddly enough, just happens to be his niece as well. Oh yes, sent me nasty comments, contacted my fans and lied about me, put up a hub page and lied about me in a crazy confusing story she made up! But, the Hub Team was right on top of it, they took it down. So, yes..I know what that's like. I'm still getting the phone calls at home and receiving e mails which threaten to "punch me in the face." But, I should not have to run away from or change anything I'm writing about on the hubs, because I'm following the rules.
Thank you for your supportive understanding IzzyM. Are you on my fans list yet? I'm still going through it Izzy. I'm told there back in the hubs under different names now. They want to stop the book from getting published. I receive e mails to my other box, some are very concerning. My phone rings, my husband or I answer it and the guy on the other end starts laughing and says "your a loser" then he hangs up. The calls are always spread out. I receive a call like that 1 or 2 times a month. So I can not get the phone company to put a trap on my line. I was told the calls have to come in everyday for at least a week before the phone company will do something. I know who it is. I used to have an unlisted number. But, my husband said a few years ago, we need to cut some pork out of our budget, so, we cut things out in many areas. Like cable tv. We now only have very limited channels to watch. But, it's for the best in helping with the high cost of living.
Thanks for your suggestion Izzy. However, I have people who call me and I just can not miss their call, some of them just refuse to leave any message on any machine. So if the machine picks up, they hang up right away. End of story. I no longer have caller ID, so I can not call anyone back.
Can't you tell everyone you'll be using an answering machine and that when it kicks in they'll just to yell "JEAN, PICK UP!!", and isn't there a last caller ID you can get by dialling something like 141?
No Izzy, I talk to people who as I said, refuse to say anything into an answering machine. Not even to yell out my name. Some people just do not want to bother with a machine Izzy. That is not uncommon. many people are like that. Please, just except it. Thank you.
No caller ID. As I said in an earlier comment I left on this page, My husband and I down graded our phone system in order to save money. When you do that, you longer have all the extra's on your phone system.
push *69. it will tell you the number and time of your last incoming phone call. If that doesnt work, look in your phone book, there is a section about security and stuff, and it wil tell you the correct code to type in. I cant afford caller ID either.
Several times. Most often when I retire from a day's work as a clergy. I've been followed and verbally attacked in this manner. Of course, at times it feels like stalking when I post on a forum and certain people seem to come out of the woodwork to place me under a truck. In all things just keep tolerance and understanding as your foundation.
I heard BadCo was back. Looks like he is up to his old tricks. Whats the matter badco aka tattoguy, ran out wine?
Don't mind him, he is mostly likely drunk, yet again. Though I think you are being a tad sensitive toward his comment. Don't post something, if you don't want some kind of negative backlash. It's hubpages for christsake.
THe only thing that is sad, is that hubpages has apparently stooped to new lows, as to let you in again, then again, then again, then again.
That's the true tragedy. Listen, I've said my peace. Write what you want. I have no desire to converse with the likes of you. So get over yourself. But this conversation is over. Once a drunk, always a drunk. At least I don't need that medal.
Sad really. To get hooked on something, then act so horribly, and then use that substance as an excuse for your sorriness. Sad.
Seems you dont understand English but then you are foreign, I dont drink anymore and in yer earlier post you so wanted that lil hubpages medal by yer name, thing is you dont like me, like I care, thing is I dont like you, a hubpages medal, now that is sad
See the thing is RK since I last chatted to you I took Legal Advice and calling me a drunk on a network website is slander. Do you know I can sue you for that, hell I have yer ip address and hubpages have yer actual details.
See thing is I have friends that visit here and I kinda dont like slander RK and I am guessing in real life you really coudlnt afford a libel case, so that means I take hubpages to court for you calling me a drunk.
Now be a good lil boy and go away or I swear you will be paying back libel fees for the rest of yer sorry life !
Listen, TattoGuy. You would love to make everyone believe that's all it is because you lack any facts or proper understanding of anything related to any truth. Fact, you do not know me, fact, I do not know you. Therefore, anything you say about me or to me holds no credit. Now, please leave me alone. I can handle a difference of an opinion. But, what you are doing is infact a personal attack on me as a person. That, infact is against hub rules. I have nothing more to say to you at this time TattoGuy. So, play your rude game at my expense all you want to. At least if your attacking me, your leaving someone else alone at this time.
Stop it you two. This is my forum thread, and I don't want it destroyed or closed because you two hate each other. So stop it! Of I'll defan the both of you, because I'm sick of both of your guys behavior. Now darn it- stop. I mean it.
I get so sick and tired of good forum post, being highjacked by hate mongers. Happen to me yesterday with Misha, and now it's happening by my two dearest hubpages friends. So I'm standing up to this- stop it please.
I really would like to read what other experiences people have gone through. Rolan I mean it. Tim- that goes for you too. I love you both, but all be darn if I'm putting up with this crap.
You two are not the only ones trying to have a good time here tonight. Not by a long shot.
naww - nobody wants to follow me around - they'd be bored to death! Plus, I would take a switch back and then follow them! and then make friends, and then we would live happily ever after! but seriously - in 8th grade there was a boy who stalked me for awhile, but as I say, I was kinda flattered, even though he did have a very strange look about him.
I was right on topic until TattoGuy personally attacked me and he continued to attack me. As I said, I invite a difference of opinion on any subject. But personal attacks directed at other hub members are against the rules of this website. Rules are rules for everyone here. Not just the new members. Thank you.
AOL had a great idea. When someone said something in the forums or in a chatroom that was not nice(Hell mend us if Hubpages ever opened one here!), they had an 'ignore' button. Press that and you did not see the comments that person made.
Without it, we can kid ourselves on that people are not attacking us by IGNORING them. They soon get fed up and move over to someone else.
Crazdwriter, I think your a wonderful writer and I believe I have said that more then once to you However, please understand something. At my husband's suggestion, I recorded all of the comments which infact, are personal attacks on me made by TattoGuy, the recordings were made with my camcorder which has the date and time of each and every comment made. Camcorders do not lie. People do! Crazdwriter, I understand you came into this forum late and maybe you had not had a chance to read every post. However, I can assure you, my camcorder has them for my protection. Crazdwriter, if you would like me to send you a copy, I'ed be happy to do so. Peace be with you crazdwriter.
tantrum, if as you said, and I quote you here "" We all know he's the one needing medical help."" Then can you tell me why crazdwriter, stepped in late and she said, and I quote her now, ""I read TG's remark."" Let me say infact, crazdwriter admitts she only read one remark. Infact, he made more then one comment which was rude and clearly a personal attack on me. Look, I'm a real person and I try to be as friendly and as respectful as I can in these online forums. I thought this topic was about stalkers. As soon as I came in here and talked about that subject, TattoGuy went off on me. My camcorder does not lie, people do! I spent the better part of my life, winning cases against bad lawyers who engaged in misconduct as an attorney. In order to be successful doing that... you have to know when it's time to get documented facts on record. In this case I did. Thank you.
I have a general type of question. If somebody has been stalked for a long time, say by an internet troll, and then gets mad and enters the thread where the troll is already having a discussion with others, then picks a fight with the troll: In this scenario, do you believe that the person who was stalked can still claim to be a victim of stalking? Or have the lines been blurred?
Funny there is a thread about stalking. Ha!! I just got accused of it on another forum. Cracks me up. There's a difference in normal curiosity about something and investigating a situation compared to continual obsessive preoccupation with the person. Heck, I admit I stalked before, years ago. Ha!Do you call excessive drive-bys of a guys house stalking? I did my share..wouldn't waist my time on it now. Guess I'm a stalker for sure....I have an inquisitive curiosity with some situations...hehehe.
I was once stalked for three months.....I could often see him lurking in the shadows.....on one occassion I went into the shower and he was standing there naked...I felt very distressed for a long time....even at work he would phone me....I often slammed the phone down...but he would call again and again....when I was in bed sleeping one night I could feel a cold hand on my back....when I turned there was no one there...but the patio door was lying open...I was very scared...
When I was a little boy about 10 my sisters were stalked by a guy in a car trying to get them to get in the car with him. They told me about it, so I followed behind them when they went to the shops. He slowed down and opened the door to call my sisters. when he did, I jumped in his car and stuck a knife across his throat. I may have been a little kid, but that pedo turned as white as a sheet!
Man,this thread is making me paranoid. I'm going to FB right now and take some stuff off!! Geez. I'm freakin out here. Quakin in my socks. Please don't harass me...I have OCD and I'm pre-menopausal.
I think the coolest stalk I ever pulled was continually drivin by this dude's house and finally gettin the nerve to poor a carton of egg beaters in his mailbox. I guess that's actually defamation of US postal property. I've just confessed to it. Now I've really done it.
So I had a little problem with guys dumping me, big deal.
