Have you been harassed on gag?

I'm really curious because hearing how others say they are. I'm wondering what's going on when they start to become harasssed by another.

I've been on here for over a year now and never faced any issues like that.

  • Yes.

    My pics were stolen and they asked rate me questions by writing "I'm a pig ass" on my picture.
    They stalked me and downvoted my opinions with their 6-7 duplicate accounts.
    They PMed me to either give my personal information or they will kill me.
    I humiliated them and didn't reveal anything so, they said that they'll utterly destroy me no matter what got it takes.
    They called names to my parents too.

    In the end of the day. I'm still standing strong and they still have me in their nightmares 😏

    • Thanks for MHO :)

    • What the heck? That's crazy!

    • @BelleGirl21 Yes, that's one of the reasons I left for four months. Nothing is worth ruining the peace of mind.

      And yes, I found that being a regular member is more fun than being a mod. I was asked again, but I refused.

Most Helpful Girl

  • Yes, a couple of times.
    I've been repeatedly stalked by the virgin hunter before.
    I've once had a female on here get mad at me for putting her in her place after she continuously harassed other people on here. She took my picture and made multiple questions making up lies about me (really stupid lies mind you) but the questions would get taken down within a minute (not my doing as at the time I didn't have that ability).

    I've gotten a couple guys think I'm the spawn of all evil because I have a U next to my name and they think I'm out to get them and delete their accounts (mind you I can't even do that, only admins can). They have also called me a feminazi or whatever the fuck it is... But I don't even recall doing anything to earn that delightful badge.
    Last time I checked I was a leprechaun. Gosh.

    • People who have any type of power will be hated on the most. If something goes wrong they end up being the first person others blame.

    • I remember that incident. Hope you're not upset about it.

      I'm afraid of becoming mod again because people don't like mods :/

    • @YourFutureEx I gave up mine. Partially for that reason.

  • I had a woman who posted a question that I responded to. She didn't like my answer Q:"why do guys keep leaving me at the table on our first date" and I suggested that perhaps the problem was with her rather then the guys. Well she didn't like it, and followed me around on my feed, pretty much anything I posted she would say something rude or derogatory on until I blocked her (the one and only person I have blocked). Then that was the end. I guess she closed her account as the site shows that I have no one blocked.

  • Not that I know of, but my way of thought doesn't really make it possible anyhow
    I mostly shrug off stuff like that as people being unworthy of my attention.

    I mean, I have had people message nude pictures, but even that I just delete
    and tell them to be on their way.. is that the kind of thing you mean by harrassment?

    • I don't know what I mean by harassed really. Since I've never had it happen to me on this website. I was just wondering how others have been harassed. Since some people on here once I see what's all on their profile. It becomes really obvious why most of the time. Though I'm surprised about how some treated you. Maybe it's because your Japanese? So those people have a thing for Japanese dudes. :D

  • @9mfeo Not sure why you blocked me. A bit of childish reaction when I tried to help you counter a harasser. Anyway, here's my response since you felt I maybe was harassing you or was putting you on a tight spot.

    You need to brush up on your Canadian laws. Every country should have at least a section about international rights or human international rights. I'm pretty sure Canada has one or foreign nationals will just abuse Canadian citizens because they're not protected. I wouldn't want to live in Canada if that were the case. I've visited other countries outside U. S. and always observed their laws, you're crazy if you don't. Some nations will just kill you on the spot if you fuck with their citizens, even if the other citizen is not of kin.

    I think this discussion has concluded and really is not an ongoing concern to you anymore, since you mentioned that he moved on to the next victim or committed suicide. I believe you were just unaware of your own laws and felt helpless of the situation since you thought your laws can't protect you against a foreign national.

    • @Asker, not that I know of. Although some people can be quite sensitive if you try to point out the obvious and when they react in a negative way, then they tend to get abused verbally to the extent of receiving threats.

      I meant no harm to 9mfeo, in fact I was laying some prevention tips for her to use. I guess we can't help those people for what seems like a personal problem for them even when it's not.

  • "No" and it's probably because people think I'm a big scare black man or so ___ (I won't name her) says lol

  • Yes, and it's is always by someone by the name of Anonymous. ;-) The anon feature really gets abused here a lot. And I've had a couple of women (who I suspect were actually men posting as women) try to engage me in talking dirty to them in private messages. I'll have a frank conversations with anyone, but unless I know someone well, I'm not going to engage in dirty talk. So they got blocked.

    • The worst anyone's ever done to me is get the last word in on a conversation and then block me. What do you people even consider abuse?

    • That's what I'm wondering too. Since not many people are explaining in depth on how they were harassed.

    • I'm thinking microaggressions like "He said my hair wasn't nice enough" lol

  • I've had a few salty messages before. I usually toyed with them until they blocked me.

What Girls Said 25

  • Pffff harassed? I got raped on this site.

    We should stop virtual rape ta'day.

    But hey, hey, wait, wait. I got called so many names by a circle jerk on here. The same circle jerk abused the downvote function and I had 5-7 downvotes for a week and half on my opinions just to show they don't want me in the community. I got called racist and Nazi and Islamophobic a million times for a long time and I still get called names for talking against Islam as a religion and culture. There was an entire thread that people talked about me and how racist and bigoted I am in it. A catfish went on every thread that I was mentioned in them and spent an hour arguing with the person who mentioned me to prove to him/her I'm a racist and a bad person basically. Some black guy that I didn't even know why he's suddenly antagonistic towards me mentioned me in some questions calling me racist, even though you can't actually find any kind of racism in any of my posts. The same guy after I pissed him off by him calling him "unintelligent black man" because he insisted on mentioning and insulting me on questions, Messaged me and and insulted me over and over and over and in the end told me "If I see you in Toronto you're finished".

    And still, I don't say I got "harassed" or all of that had any effect on me or my life even though that guy actually said "if you come to Toronto and I see you you're finished" it's simply threatening me to death.

    But I don't see how people take all these seriously. If I went to Toronto and he saw and attempted to attack me he would have a bullet between his eyes before he touch me. I don't even think about it.

    I don't understand what's so important about virtual harassment when there is a block function that you can basically completely get rid of the person with it. I did have to use it and for good. I don't even care about those people.

    Why do you even talk to people if you don't like it and they are asking too many questions? You want to be nice? Being nice doesn't mean not thinking about your own ease of mind. If you are too nice and can't defend yourself that is the sign of an unhealthy mind.

    Just don't take it seriously. Internet harassment is absolutely nothing. And has absolutely no impact in real life if you aren't too simple minded yourself to take internet people seriously.

    I don't see how people consider themselves really harassed. The very concept of having internet harassment as a serious issue is absurd to me.

    • Don't reveal it, but tell me, was that black guy a mod?

      I read a lot of opinions from him and whenever I tried to hide those, the admins took down the whole thread.

    • @YourFutureEx I don't think he was. he was a Canadian black man. And later after 5-6 months I think he realized he is mistaking.

      It is the internet. By the way, nice to see you again.

  • Yes.

    When I first joined, some dude PMed me. I messged him back because he seemed normal enough. Eventually he got to asking me these simultaneously boring but also very intrusive questions. I didn't want to answer them, so I stopped messaging him back.

    About a week later, I answered one of his questions that he posed to the community because it was actually halfway interesting. Then, he flips out at me for not responding to his PMs. I'm a mean, evil witch. He doesn't deserve to be ignored like that. I'm going to rot in hell. Naturally, I block him.

    A few weeks later yet, I change my profile photo to an old photo of me on Facebook. Buddy sees this after I unknowingly shared an opinion on one of his anonymous questions. He uses reverse image search to find me, makes multiple accounts to harass me (and my friends and family) and threatened to kill myself and my best friend (whom he thought was my boyfriend) because "you need to stop being a whore for Indian cunts."

    I'm not sure if he's still active on this website, but for a while after I blocked him on Facebook and explained the situation to the Gag admins (who only gave him a warning) he would still yell abuse on anonymous questions. I'm still hesitant to answer questions by an anonymous 25-29 year old male.

    • Damn girl, that was quite an entertaining story. It sucks you went through that shit, but you shouldn't hesitate to answer posts from Anons or by that person. What can they really do to you, jump out your screen and wring your neck? I chuckled at the failed attempts of folks that does shit like that though.

    • I can relate to the vicinity part, but I never let 1 person, of insignificance value or have zero impact in my life, affect me. Honestly, this man clearly doesn't really care because he is enjoying the fact that he is getting a reaction out of you. Some people are just like that. You ignoring his comments, ignores his existence will probably hurt his ego or whatever fueled him to be this way against you. "You hear that? Never mind, I thought I heard something." People would just probably look at this idiot like a dumbass when you just ignore him and keep on walking when he blasts "slurs" at you publicly. This idiot is just a sad lonely person that needs attention from someone. Why allow one man to ruin your whole day? This idiot means NOTHING to you. A NOBODY.

      You have the option to file for harassment or completely ignore his incessant behavior. Be proactive, not reactive to the situation. So many solutions you can use to break free from being harassed.

    • @Baggz seeing as he's American, Canadian law can't do a whole hell of a lot. Maybe he's harassing and stalking someone else by now. Maybe he's jumped off a bridge.

      It's very easy for you to just brush off death threats as you, as a man, are not taught by society to placate men because they could snap and kill you or rape you at any second.

  • I've only had to deal with mild to moderate stuff. Like there was some European kid who got angry that I hid his posts telling people to "go fuck yourself" so he decided to hang out in my inbox calling me names for awhile. Which was fine with me because more evidence of harassment.

    Then there's always a few boys who fall for misogyny trolls and then get pissy when their "friend's" account deactivates and blame it on me for some reason. Like even if I wasn't even ON the question they're like "ermahgawd BellePepper sucks"

    Oh! And then one of the angry boys made a spoof account that lasted about 20 minutes. That was sad.

    The big difference for me compared to a lot of people is that when someone is being a jerk to me I can do something about it. That makes a lot of problems smaller. Other people who have to deal with that behavior don't always have that luxury.

  • I've been harassed once. The guy kept trying to push me for personal information like my full name, where I lived, my phone number, Facebook, etc, and then would get angry when I said I wouldn't give it to him. He also attempted to know way too much of my personal and sex life, which I don't really talk about. I eventually got up the courage to block him.
