    What to do with a stalker?

    this is somewhat not serious...

    Ever had somebody that just really seems to follow you around, bother you, keep your name in their mouth, and just overall you find that very annoying?

    You've tried cursing them out. You've tried being nice. You've even tried to "mentor" this person. You've explained that their obsession is unhealthy. You've even tried to figure out what their problem was/is. You've even joked with, against, and at times, both with this person.

    You keep a nice disposition, regardless, but finally one day, you find yourself on the verge of snapping. Or perhaps you've already snapped.

    But there is no talking sense into them. Nor is there anyway to get this person to see that they're just basically wacko as hell and should get a new hobby. There's no physical harm they can cause you, but it all creeps the hell out of you.

    What would you do with this potential stalker?

    Convince them that someone else is cooler than you and how much of an idol they are to you. Say the same type of things to them that they say about you but about this other person and soon they will be worshiping, following, stalking a new victim and not you or just shoot them and ask God for forgiveness after, easier to get forgivness than it is permission!!!

    it wasn't hard to find out who's stalking you (if your talking about who i think you're talking about).

    ban him from every forum you admin and every forum where you're friendly with admin.
    he'll come back (more machine than man) but hopefully won't announce himself or have any contact with you - 'cause he knows he'll get banned. As someone who clearly needs to "reach out" he'll steer clear of possible bannination and simply "talk" about you on his devArt page which is easily avoidable.

    Get a restraining order.

    Not sure what provisions they have for E-contact though... I am sure there is something like that.

    how come he never comes into the CL?

    Flashkid, but suprisingly enough, Big Willy has a real life and I think he's talking about someone 'real'...

    Gerbs, I've never been cool enough or good enough at anything for this happen to me so I can offer no advice

    I've had a few geeks latch onto me because i'm not quite as sad as them, but that's about it...

    ah... "real" the place on this side of the screen... sorry

    well, is it a romantic type stalker or a just-wanna-hang-around-annoyin-ya type stalker?

    romantic? tell 'em you butter your bread on the other side
    hang around? tell 'em you butter your bread on their side.

    well it might work....

    It's actually been a year since I've had my last real-life stalker - moving five times in four months last year basically solved that problem.

    actually, this is a scary truth. I've had to order seven restraining orders since my freshman year in college. never been on the receiving end of one; however I've met some truly psychotic wenches in my life. But this new ladyfriend is just lovely.

    But this is about an e-stalker this time. And like I told somebody else earlier today. I just find it sad that each time I've almost forgot about this stalker, next thing I know I end up in some random rant about something that honestly was of no consequence to me. Sorta like if I met a stranger on a street corner, he said something to me other than about the weather... and I'd want to go argue with that same dude a week or two later.

    I'd just let it go. But not this person. And yeah... it's annoying because I'm just sitting here with a dumb look on my face... a perpetual "HUH!?" because hell, if it weren't for me saving the logs, I'd forget the convos. Oh well. I'm actually venting because I just received like 17 e-mails from people describing the new rant. And I don't get it.

    bleh.

    now, if it's elIgnoramus, just ignore him, he prefers to have fun with Starkey
    If it's flashkid, ban him.
    If it's your imaginary friend, well, maybe you are the psycho
