Have you ever been harassed by someone online for long periods of time? What have you done to reduce or stop the harassment?
Without diving into too many details, there's someone I know personally who has literally made it their life's mission to discredit me on the Internet. I admit it. I'm one of those guys that -- once in a while -- types his name on Google to see what comes up. About five to six months ago, I realized this guy wrote about me on several popular sites on the Alexa site rankings system, and the comments were so profane and accusatory that I had to respond to him and counter his libel. Fortunately, a lot of his comments were removable either due to a sympathetic site staff or the site had the ability to report abusive comments.
It's one thing to look at something about you on 4chan -- and think, "Oh, he's anonymous, whatever" -- and it's another to see someone you know posting things about you in an attempt to destroy your reputation. Since he's started his "crusade," I've had a harder time finding work because employers have looked me up on Google and found these comments.
