The sad truth is stalkers in general are probably victims themselves of some kind of untreated mental illness, neglect or abuse at some point, not that it makes it right but as a species sometimes we have the unenviable task thrust upon us to reap the seeds of malcontent that were sown by others, in the grand scale of things it's swings & roundabouts.
Unfortunately true. This is a sensitive topic for me, and I'm sure the same is true for many others. I wish my stalker had been a bird and not a human. A bird would have left my terminally ill family member alone.

How does virtual stalking even work? Don't most sites have a block feature? As for not giving out your phone number, email, physical address, or any other sort of identification on a public forum, that should be common sense...

Tree = stalk.

How many plants have you seen online and in real life?

I didn't give out any of that. All he had was my first name and some basic details (age, gender, etc). But once he became obsessed, that was all he needed.

I suppose the only way to protect myself completely would be to never give out any details at all, to anyone, ever. Since I have no friends in real life, that's difficult for me.

I think if you block them and they quit, then that probably means you misinterpreted.

In what way did this person stalk you?

Again, how exactly does that work? I'm thinking that hitting the block button is quicker for you than for them to create a new account. And if they repeatedly do that, can't you report them to site moderators?

That's because we have had some real crafty buggers, they like playing games and hiding themselves using VPN and signing up on hundreds of accounts. Some real dedicated ones.

Almost sure I have posted exactly the same thing before, but there is NO Facebook-style block feature on this forum as such. It's called the Ignore List on here, but is NOT really the same thing!

You guys who have experienced it, how did it stop? I want a life again...

Having SA feels like being a scratched up LP that keeps getting stuck at exactly 10 seconds into Track 02.

Thankfully, I didn't get to experience that. But obviously, why and who ever would stalk me lol...

I would never do that either... It's creepy...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through this, and I hope your stalker will leave you alone soon.

From what I’ve seen on SAS and from what I’ve heard, some stalkers (very slowly) give up over time or move on to someone else and stalk them instead. Sometimes they stalk multiple people at once. Some people we know of who have experienced it have left SAS, so we don’t know if they’re still having problems or not.

I’ve read that some people have been stalked for ten years or more by the same person.

Have been harassed, and it also involved some stalking since they found me on another site which was not easy to find specific people on, a year later, and sent a couple more obscene messages, so they must have been pretty obsessed.

I don't think you can report someone for something they are doing off this website.

I know that, I was just trying to make a point.
