    What is the board policy on stalking?

    Ignore mode is a very fine thing, but since posting here I've had 2 posters who often seem to spend their days spouting braindead abuse about my every post.

    One is an occaional irritant, the other one is so obsessive I keep expecting him to find him on my doorstep when I get home (naked, smothered in toothpaste, wearing the ubiquitous tinfoil helmet, and ranting about how my evil lies have cost him his job as Defender of the Planet).

    I have the guy on Ignore, but even so - it makes discussion difficult when one poster comments 10 times in a row on a thread - and never on the topic. It's just wave of abuse. It means other poster don't bother replying, and it kill threads.

    Can't these lunatics be given a time out every so often?

    Do it once or twice and the problem will solve itself.

    I've been dealing with a stalker as well since the first day I got here. Apparently as long as they are right wingers doing the abuse, it's OK in the mod's eyes.

    And how about the idiots that make a post that seems totally irrelevant to the thread topic? And the idiots that neg those idiots, even though THEY didn't start the thread?

    Mr H -

    I don't know why you post music videos on threads about politics, but I gues you are trying to stop peaple debating above your head?

    Either way - you are not a stalker!

    Mods -

    So - what IS the policy?

    Yes, there is, but in an ideal world stalkers do not run the forum.

    Carte blanche is not well suited for people with psychological problems.

    As it happens, it seems possible the poster in question saw thi thread and has left the forum. In which case I'm delighted.

    Isn't there a website called Finlandmessageboard? You sir are stalking > 300 million people.
    Why do you care how the US conducts itself and why do you consider yourself qualified to comment?

    I wish someone would stalk me. I get so lonely sometimes.
