Thread Title:
My Troll Follows Me Here
Thread Description:

Some months back popular blogger Russell Beattie attracted a Cyber Stalker - Some nutcase that had it in for him and was doing his best to harm him online.

Now, grass roots journalism guy Dan Gillmore formerly of the Mercury News has picked up a similar fruitcake:

I'm removing a series of comments from a troll who haunted my old blog and has followed me here.

I will not permit this site to be taken over by these kinds of folks. Period

I didnt get to see the comments but it does seem that (surprise surprise..) online celebrity attracts the same kind of lunatics that we see harrass folks in the offline world.

I want one too dammit! heh..

I would generally expect more and crazier ones. the costs of really messing w someone are dirt cheap compared to the offline world. and so long as you have enough desire and money you can annoy people from the comfort of your own home all day long...until you make your plot to transition to the offline world ;)
