I still think that most person to person crime is committed by someone we
know.  However, the Internet does allow those with perversions to attack
others or make others lives as miserable as there with little danger of
being caught.  Your information on what actions to take is good and helpful.

I guess I didn't realize that this was a huge problem.  It's being stalked
in chat rooms, listservs and via email.  The rule of most crimes being
committed by somebody you know doesn't seem to apply anymore.  Most of the
on line stalking is done at random, which I would think would make it more
difficult for the stalker to be caught.  I have never known anyone that this
has happened to, but there is a lot of info on the web about it.

The typical length of stalking is 11 months!  That's almost a whole year of
someone driving you crazy.  The whole point of cyberstalking is not to make
friends with a person, but to annoy them every time they get on a computer.
In some instances, cyberstalkers get together in groups and try to figure
out other ways of stalking.

If you ARE being stalked online, cyberangels.org says to say LEAVE ME ALONE
and then stay offline for at least 24 hours.  After that, do not respond in
any way, shape, or form ever again.  Hopefully, they will get bored.  If
they start to harrass in any way besides online, contact the police.

for law enforcement regarding cyberstalking.
