Have you ever dealt with a stalker?

Postby crazyflyingdonut » Thu Oct 11, 2018 5:58 pm

Has anyone here ever dealt with a stalker? I was watching a video on YouTube the other day about stalkers... it makes me wonder if it's more common than I think.

I've known people who have. It's dangerous as hell on the internet, especially if someone decides to doxx you. Then it's not just one stalker, it's tons of them, and they don't care what kind of damage they're doing.

It's why you should be careful how much personal info you put out there.

Cause once you tell people your home address, you're done.

Maybe not even that. If they know your real name and have a vague location like a home state, the door is potentially open to finding more information. In some cases, all it took was knowing an email address.

my brother had a teenage girl stalk him for a short period when his band received some short-lived fame on TV and Facebook. most of the time, he wasn't home when she arrived, leaving me to deal with the aftermath of it most of the time. put simply, it was not pleasant to deal with, even if this was just a case of blind fangirl-ism with no malicious intentions against him. after that experience, i try to be more careful with what i myself put out.

Could you elaborate, please? Specifically, the part where you had to deal with the aftermath.

I would be careful about asking for details on things like this. You may be diving deeper than you need to, or in the worst case scenario, dragging up long-buried trauma.

(Edit) I've made a mistake and accidentally deleted the post that this is in reply to, thanks to misunderstanding how the Disapprove button works. My apologies for the error.

[after I realize that this is not S.T.A.L.K.E.R. topic]

Depending of what meaning you put in the word stalker.
Because you can be named stalker even if you just check what going on with you first love from the school using facebook/instagram/what there are now popular, I dont know, say once in the week.

But in any cases, there are plenty of them. And nowaday internet addiction of everything and everyone make it only easier.
