Since nearly 4 years I'm trolled by some people, who just can't stand, that I have a true life and be happy with it. So they try to destroy my online life, maybe because they don't have any other - well, they must be in a desperate need to do so, so the conclusion seems reasonable.
It took me some time since the last actions, but now I have decided NOT to retreat any further. Why? Because I think, they are scum, not worth any more thought and I have their true names and adresses (not only their IP, yes, also the location they are registered by the police) and I think, that's enough to cite them before court.
It is illegal to stalk someone, in real life also as online, we have laws for that. As they are from Germany as I am, it is easy to get and punish them. That's an option, I guess. And I'll take it.
So, what did they do so far? They follow me constantly where I go: forums, fanfiction-sites, dA. Most forum-admins know them by now and watch their actions and IPs. FF.net is as useful as always, ff.de is more cooperative,thanks to that. And now for dA: hell, is there ANY support around here? I reported their stolen art not only once or twice, but many, many more times! Without any effect so far. Sad but true and another reason which led to my decision.
Yes, they steal art, pretend it is theirs, post it on their sites (and they have a lot of accounts here on dA), use it in forums to take the mick out of everyone who likes what I like, my watchers, my dA-friends. I can't protect you from that, that was proofed, sorry. We are all publishing our stuff here to show it, get critics, advices, learn from another but sometimes some trolls are there to besmear everything.
Why? I can only guess. Too much time because of not being able to keep a proper job or a real relationship? Mentally illness? Morbid jealousy? Who knows? And - by the way - who really cares? Maybe their parents do. Parents are like that: even if they bred the most ugliest, dimp-witted and vile scum, they care about them. If even they are fed up with them: hey, welcome to reality. Life's hard and welfare can be shortened when you do not get your ass away from your PC and to work.
What does that mean for you, my dA-friends and watchers? That you have to watch out by yourself. I have tried my best to get them off your tracks, but with such a splendid support as from dA it is impossible to get rid of copycats, thieves and trolls. Thank god, they have marked the prices for this no-service! Hallelujah! [insert ironic grin here]
And now? I bought a core-membership. So much for retreatment.
