Any advice for dealing with a banned DU stalker?
I am receiving the most VILE and hateful email from
a banned DUer.
Has anyone else had this experience?
What are your suggestions in dealing with it.
I have posted in the "ask the admin" forum upon
the suggestion of a friend who works for my service provider.
She has suggested that the info I have from this person so far
may match up with some DU records. If I can ID them,
I plan to prosecute to the fullest degree the law allows.

I am so sick of the HATE fest that has gripped this country.

1. Yeah, just tell Skinner
Hopefully he can do something. Your ISP may be able to help more.

5. Hi LaZ!
Haven't seen you in some time!
Isn't it about time for another SO CAL DUer fest?
And thanks for the advice- I am working on that end
right now with my friend who just HAPPENS to work
there!
YEE-HAW
Freep asses beware.
Cowardly bullies behind keyboards probably
would not do well in a court of law.

7. Yeah!
Another DUer (Bertha Venation, I believe) is coming to Orange County sometime in the next couple of months. I believe she posted in the California forum, we should do something while she's here.

8. ROLF! Bertha is a HE!
Great user name though, eh?
Yes, yes, Orange County it is!
We did LA last time, so this time we cross the Orange Curtain
and come to you!
If this rain ever stops that is...
Can you believe it!?!?!
How's your S.O.?
Haven't seen her around either!

12. She's around
She just started a new job.

Orange County this time, then San Diego next time. Maybe in the summer?

We can keep going and hit Baja and never come back if the Bush crap gets much worse. ;-)

13. Can we stop in Texas and pick up Anarchy 1999?
She needs to get out too.
Sounds like a plan to me!

14. Heck
we can set up a commune! Find us some good land south of the border somewhere (Costa Rica, maybe?) and get us a commune going. Good old fashioned hippy stuff. :D

2. Contact his ISP and get his account yanked
You have all the info you need there to track his account.

3. You could post their e-mail address where it would be picked up
by spammers. That would annoy them.

4. Preferably some spam freepers hate.
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 03:34 AM by Liberty Belle
NARAL, NOW, and the ACLU for starters.

Seriously, though, I'd block his e-mail address (simple to do) so you won't be bothered again, unless he actually threatened you, in which case I'd go to the police and the FBI. Possibly the FTC, too.

6. The threat part is where he crossed my line.
That is why I am pursuing it.
Blocking is very effective, but the real issue for me
is not allowing the hate mongers in this country to get away
with it- it IS a crime to threaten someone.

9. How sick.
I can't imagine doing that to someone. Even if I had the e-mail address of someone I HATED I wouldn't send hateful messages to him or her.

I have to believe that not too many normal people would do something like that, regardless of their political views.

Good luck catching that sicko.

10. Thanks, me either
I can't imagine it either.
When you put yourself in that person's shoes,
you realize just how much pain you have to
be in to engage in such childish and hateful behavior.
Truly disheartening to realize they are too far gone for help,
AND that they are free to roam the streets of this country.
I intend to do all I can to remedy that in this situation.

16. This would be a question for Skinner
He would be the best to advise you on this.
