Everything in life seems to have an opposite. The opportunity that my Beautiful Wife and I have enjoyed to meet wonderful friends far and near, right next door as well as on the other side of the globe is wonderful, and we both treasure those friendships immensely.
However, there are those who use the internet as a way to stalk and torment people. I don’t know if people like this are so lonely and hurting inside that this is the only way they can express themselves, or if they really want to threaten and hurt others but just don’t have the guts to do it in person. At any rate, I guess if they spend all their time on the internet finding and tormenting their victims in cyberspace, at least no physical harm is coming from these preditors.
My Beautiful Wife has been hounded by one of these internet stalkers for some time now. See Thotmans blog "The Tales of Brave Ulysses" http://thotman.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!90B6042A632BD161!4315.entry His attacks seem to be getting more and more viscous. So today she has decided that having a space just isn’t worth it. She feels that the only way to be rid of the stalker is to give up her space on the internet all together.
My comment option has been disabled for the time being, so the stalker can’t use my space to continue to torment her. In due time, I will become active in posting blogs and inviting comments once again.
