I'm being stalked by another DUer..with razor blades to stick in my eyes
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 04:02 PM by Blaze Diem
I offered an opinion she didn't like, I guess.
It was about hate crimes.
Now I'm being followed and attacked and she won't leave well enough alone.
I'm seeking asylum in the DU Lounge.

Some posters are way to serious.
They would never enter a relaxed and casual place like the Lounge.
Not serious enough for them.
They're very anal thinking people. At least this stalker one is.

I feel safer in here.


-------OK now will someone please make me laugh...
whew..

9. That's An Imperfect Solution...
... even when you put someone on ignore, it's still easy to tell that someone is dogging your every post (ie: your "My DU" page will indicate that a message of yours received a reply so you check it and it's turns out to be ANOTHER "ignored" user... time after time... post after post... it's difficult to "ignore" that pattern of behavior).

People can easily and effectively "ignore" another who's routinely childish, or an attention whore, or who's a bit too militant in their opinions... or anyone who gets on their nerves, and that generally works fine. HOWEVER... it's unfair NOT to enforce the anti-stalker rules by putting the burden on the person who's being stalked but telling them to use the ignore feature.

Just because the stalker-victim CAN put a stalker on ignore, it's not the best solution to someone who's breaking the rules in that manner. The best solution is to alert and have the admins put a stop to it.

5. IBTL...
You should probably alert on someone who's harrassing you.

6. I Recommend That You Click Alert... The Moderators Take Stalking Seriously
... and will act promptly to see that such antisocial and passive-aggressive behavior ceases right away. It may even get that person BANNED if it continues, or if they disregard whatever warning they receive.

8. Aha - have you made a sworn enemy?
It's okay...if you truly feel threatened, then by all means, alert the mods...otherwise, just hang here for a while.

11. I did report it to to mods..This WAS geting serious..
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 04:19 PM by Blaze Diem
Now I'm not a whiner about things and can usually handle my own issues or at least ignore the ones that aren't worth the effort, but I found this one just waiting to pick a big fat fight with me. Probably would have started shit then run to the mods and said I was being a troublemaker.

That's the kind of person she seemed like..pretty childish..

----------------------But the DU Lounge is always a great place to go for a breath of clean fresh and pollutant free air..

And there's lots of cool friends always hanging out in the Lounge.

I'd like a cold one please..and a couple games of pool would help a lot.

Someone put some quarters in the jukebox...
I'm buying a round for the Lounge O.K.

thanks

13. It's easy enough to find the thread you're referencing...
From what I can surmise... your posts seemed pretty worthy of some flaming. "racist Hispanic murderers"... ?

Edited to add... though I can't find any thread with the same person responding to him elsewhere. I think some exaggeration is happening.

19. That's what the original post called them!
I was absolutely appalled by he words and actions of this crime.
Nothing to argue about..It was a hate crime..determined by the words they uses, and the murders were carried out by Hispanics, were they not? And as this discussion was between me and other posters who had similar feelings about racial issues we notice in our daily lives.

Sorry if Racial, Hispanic, and murderers came to cause someone to be insulted, but tell me how else I should have worded my concerns without saying the words, Hispanic, murderers and racial.
Please read the original posting first.
I references the original post..didn't make it up as I went along, after all.

Well I'm a bit insulted when I cannot use the words, Hispanic, racial and murderers, which is what they all were, together in expressing my concerns without being attacked for doing so.
I have reported my stalker to the mods.
I have stated why and asked why we must be so careful when expressing the concerns of the Hispanic culture as they emerge in our society, It is racial when they made it so through their comments. If you read the original post you will see this.
I am correct as I see it.

I'm comfortably in the lounge now,and unless you care to address me in some sensible fashion, I'll just sip my beer and let you stew about it.

Its a moot point from here on.
I've stated my case and will not do so again.
Bait away, inflame , insult, report, doesn't matter.
Its my opinion based on the original post.
I was appalled by the actions and words of a certain group that clearly did so with hate and race in mind.
