Good work! It's pretty troubling that this slug has never crawled back under his rock! I've seen the comments he's made on her blog. I am presuming he has also stalked and harassed her on the telephone and/or in person. Is that the case? She should not tolerate behavior this any further. This guy is a menace to her and society.

Glad to see you helping her!

thanks bro, it's all her post though. they have never met in person though and haven't talked on the phone that i know of. he has though infested her blog (and attempted infesting mine, mattbrim's and valdrane's blogs) and is generally being a childish nuisance making up new profiles as he gets banned. his continued spoilt brat posturing shows him to be nothing more than a petulant drama queen attention whore and it's time for the hammer to fall. and it is!

Sorce ... PrincessKarma and I were having trouble with an abuser who kept changing handles, etc. Finally, when we couldn't get the problem resolved thru normal channels and we actually got banned ourselves, we worked it thru Ali Rhaman, the Director of Customer Service. He's a good man! He got to the bottom of the BS in short order and got 6 handles banned and the guy has never come back to bother us or anyone else. Send me an email if you want Mr. Rhaman's email address. I think that GOTD can also help with these kind of abusive situations. Good look, pal! Well done!
