anonymous comments and cowards

There are few things I despise more than cowards.

Just recently, I and some friends of this livejournal were subjected to a sustained nuisance by an anonymous poster, who apparently thought that inane comments punctuated by line after line of "hahahaha" constituted reasonable comment - or perhaps they were just shit-stirring, at least in the beginning.

After this had gone on for far too long, a single comment resulted in one friend becoming extremely agitated. She and another began an investigation, and discovered the identity of the anonymous poster. It was someone known to me, so it fell to me to discover the truth. The idiot then rang the person helping and intimated he was "working" for some unnamed person or persons to get my friend "released" from her current magickal path - as if he had any control whatsoever.

I discovered that the idiot was working for no one but himself, and had taken it upon himself to get involved in what he thought was a cult situation.

The fallout from this was that one friend (who has been through so much recently) became frightened and depressed, another became angry and overreacted completely, and still another was given her walking papers - despite doing nothing to deserve it.

Despite this, I still thought something could be resurrected of the group we had been. I went away for the weekend trusting in this.

What a fucking fool I have been.

On my return, I find that - although I went through so much shit trying to solve this problem and help my friends - I am still distrusted, still considered a possible suspect as one of the mythical "employers" of the idiot. Worse, bonvivanta has been subjected to a whole new barrage of anonymous comments on her livejournal - this time from someone with a considerably better grasp of grammar, vocabulary and imagery. It's not just shit-stirring and baiting this time - it's outright threats. And it cannot have been the idiot - he was in the same location as me (a long way from home) all weekend.

I have some idea who may be behind these, and I will find out who is doing it. Whoever they are, they have made a crucial misstep. The idiot made vague comments - these are specific threats. Eilish does not deserve any of the crap that has been levelled at her lately, and I will be the first person calling those responsible to account. What is necessary will be done.

You are beneath my contempt.

it's been a while, but thought i'd reply to this.
not knowing any details of what this is about, i know through a friend of mine on lj, that if you reprt this person -- anonymous or not -- they can be tracked and at least banned, if not have something more secular in punishments (depending upon the threats).

anyway, i still read what entries you post to the open world, and wonder how you are doing. i've moved in my own geographic location and now reside... well... a few blocks away from templewhore, actually!

dark & delicious thoughts,

I thought you had disappeared from the face of the earth! That is the only reason I took your name from my "Friends" list.

Thank you so much for the information. I will pass it on to my friend, and hopefully she can put an end to this.

I am so glad to receive a comment from you again ...

Just read Eilish's journal... nice to see the anonymous one has some grammatical aptitude and general eloquence! Pathetic bum they are...

it is irnonic that we thought we nailed the anonymous poster and another one popped up even though we had our eyes on the naughty one all weekend with no computer anywhere in the wilderness to be seen. I wonder who is behind the mask of cowardly anonymity? Just for all you darlings out there in lj land, it is a federal police offence to stalk, threaten or harass someone using a telecommunications device. I have kept all anonymous posts and am forwarding them onto the Feds. Have fun in jail, who's the prey now jail bait? winks*
Eilish, the normally fluffy one, whoops did my mask slip?
