Have you ever met any stalkers/creeps in CR who try to make you feel uncomfortable? I guess it's a first for me but I probably pushed someone's buttons this evening based on a disagreement of opinions in a thread. The last resort for these kind of lowlife scum is to make it more personal and try to invade your privacy. The idea is to make someone feel uneasy that they have some of your personal information and show it as some kind of a veiled threat. Perhaps I could show this to someone I know in law enforcement? Maybe. Anyway, meet this local CR scumbag:




Update:

The sad shit even messaged me on my reddit account lol. I guess I know where he got my name from. Posted a picture of a letter we wrote for the mangaka, Sui Ishida (Tokyo Ghoul), when we visited a cafe in Tokyo that he uses as a model for his manga.

I'm sorry man. To answer your question, I met a lot of creeps but not to your extent.. lol. Though there's some people that know my full name, where I live, my occupation, etc. I hope he/she doesn't get more in depth, then... that's kinda scary.

It really poses no threat to me. Just another loser on the internet who thinks using Google to gather some basic info online is enough to make me feel uncomfortable. I do find it weird but not something I'd rule out. Desperate people go through great lengths to make themselves feel somewhat relevant. This individual couldn't handle having a difference in opinion and being called out for his bullshit in the threads so instead of accepting that it's simply a pointless exchange of ideas and opinions, he/she decided to go personal by making veiled threats. Fuck that, I'll even give him a spotlight.

Honestly, law enforcement isn't going to do anything. The most effective way is to just ignore them ( Y )

Most likely. Unless they go further than that, there's no reason to waste time on some sad scumbag.

Sec,
Looking up Queens, New York.
Also, this is not the way to handle this situation.
You said you were a councilor, (I'm trying to think of a polite way of saying you should know this).

It's a pretty cool place. It's like Brooklyn with less crime and hipsters.

Except I'm not getting paid now and I have no fucks to give about someone who threatens me outside of my job. Also, I've had training and experience counseling mentally/emotionally disturbed patients but I'm not exactly on duty so I'm free to break character. In my workplace, I get all sorts of threats from physical to calling the State/lawyer although not as often as some but I always take the high road / professional approach every time. But again, I'm not on duty.

Maybe it's exactly the way to handle it. Maybe there should be a thread dedicated specifically to outing all the weirdo profiles here on CR. It'd be one way moderators could track who's using multiple accounts just to annoy and harass other users and actually do something about it.

I doubt it, mods don't have permission to get evidence from PMs and the thread would turn into a witch trial easily abused by the people it was meant to be used against.

Honestly though, I do know that this is certainly not the high road / proper approach. The professional side of me wants to reach out to the guy and get him to talk rather than continue to express his feelings in a very unhealthy (and potentially harmful) way. Get him to realize that having a difference of opinions and even some mild rudeness in the forums is not unusual and should be taken in stride. He obviously is ill-equipped to deal with emotional stress and criticism which is a coping mechanism that people need in everyday life. The part of me that wants to make him feel as uneasy as possible and maybe drive himself to jump of the bridge exists because he tried to get someone I love involved. That's the deal breaker for me.

I'm not a trained professional but I certainly get the sentiment.
