    This is interesting, but I'm a bit skeptical of the figures.

    Unprecedented US survey tracks scope of stalking - Yahoo! News

    Anyone here that would identify themselves as a stalking victim?

    Stalking is a pretty dramatic term---does it mean that someone you don't like sends you e-mails once a week ?
    Hell if that's stalking, I'm being hunted down by spam.

    I had an ex-boyfriend stalk me after I broke up with him.

    I wasn't scared of him, just creeped out, if that makes sense. He would come into where I worked every night at just sit at the bar and stare at me. He was also friends with some of the people I worked with, so they would tell him where I would be hanging out after work, then he would go there. I knew he wouldn't harm me, he just asked everyone why I broke up with him, and what he could do to get me back.

    Uh, not STALKING ME!


    So he was just creepy, not scary.

    (He writes for an F1 Magazine now and isn't in the USA much anymore thank goodness!)
