Cyber Stalking

Ever met a troll on the forum? Not sure? Here is the definition:

"Troll. The Troll's purpose is to be given more credibility than (s)he deserves, and to suck people into useless, pointless, never-ending, emotionally-draining, ranting discussions full of verbal loops and "word labyrinths", playing people against each other, hurting their feelings, and wasting their time and emotional energy."

Are you being harrassed online? Reporting Cyberstalking:

"Cyber stalking is the use of the Internet or other electronic means to stalk someone which can be reported as a computer crime or harassment. A cyber stalker does not present a direct physical threat to a victim, but follows the victim's online activity to gather information for forms of verbal intimidation. Cyber stalkers target and harass their victims via websites, chat rooms, discussion forums, open publishing websites (e.g. blogs and Indymedia) and email.
The attorney generals office and the FBI state that Cyberstalking is a crime and recommend that you contact your local law enforcement agency computer crimes division immediately.
