This is a tad off subject but I am fairly new member and when I first came here for help I got some really helpful tips and some outright rude comments. I'm not surprised that people in the forum are targeting MOD's. It's a shame though. This can be and usually is a great tool for communication! Scout I also agree that you should report it and stop whoever is mistreating this site and your feelings!!!
It's gotta be someone you know or someone you have been in contact with before. How else would they know your personal e-mail? Who did you give your personal email to? That should narrow it quite a bit.
scout. if it was just nasty remarks, it would be no big deal, but they basically threatened you by saying you were going to get whats coming to you. i would report it immediatly. i dont know how to track isp's, but it is a yahoo address and they should be able to find the source. i have msn and i can report bad emails to them. yahoo should be the same . a nasty email like that is bad enough, but when there is also a threat involved, i would defenitly report it.
People can be downright sick. Especially because if it's who we all think it is, then they only know you on an internet basis. Who could create that much hate for someone they have never met? People that bottle up that much anger are the scariest type of people. What's worse is that the people that know her in real life probably have no idea....scary....
This might sound weird but are you fat (since the person called you fat)? If you are then it narrows it down even more. Who would know this personal information? You might have met this person face to face. I don't give my email to just anybody so I would pretty much know who would be sending me nasty emails. Unless I missed it somewhere I don't think your email addresses are posted on TP. Those comments are nasty and people shouldn't bring other people's children into this petty stuff.
Scout that is horrible! I hope you find out who did it! You know you can get nasty e-mails from anyone and everyone. Almost the whole world is on the internet you know? When I sell stuff on ebay sometimes I would get someone sending me a nasty letter because my item was selling, but their same item was not. I think that is so wrong! I would report it. I think they went to far when they started to threaten you. That is wrong. That is also why I wont put my e-mail on this forum. You just never know who is out there watching as a guest or just does not like your opinion.
I was trying to help her figure it out. Serves me right for trying to help. I was not calling her fat. I have never even met her. What reason would I have to call her names? It really ticks me off when people bring kids into the argument. They can call scout all every name in the book but her kid should be no part of it. I did try to ask her about the weight thing in the most sensitive way I know how. I mean if she was, how would they know? She might have been chummy chummy with this idiot. Might have met him at a dog show. I am not an internet chat person so I really have no idea how to look up internet addy. But I don't think it's that easy. If you know how to do a search for emails tell me how so I can look up some old classmates.
