Have you ever been stalked online by someone you may or may not know? (On any sites or emails) How did you handle it? Is it still happening?
Online stalking is a big problem that I'm finding a lot of law enforcement isn't ready to handle because of many factors. It's not like the old drive-by-the-house, or calling someone on the phone type of stalking that could be proven. Online talking has many variables to constitute whether or not it even is stalking. Yet many countries will recognize that all forms of stalking is criminal harassment. But online stalking seems to have slipped through the cracks. What are your thoughts, and how have you personally been affected by it?

Yes, I have. Twice actually. It was very scary as both people would go on sites and watch what I saying, keeping track of my answers, questioning me when I wouldn't respond right away, etc... At first, I sometimes missed their responses (on the site or through some form of messenger) or didn't have anything to say. However, I would stop responding all together because they were freaking me out with their behaviors.
It really can be a problem. Obviously, people have to be careful online. If someone is bothering you that much, you have to block them from all forms of social media, websites, messengers, etc... At first, I felt bad about doing that because I felt mean, but it needs to be done to keep yourself safe.0
