A couple years ago, somebody on the boards somehow got my real vita and stalked me. Harrassing phone calls at work, etc. I'm like totally paranoid, so I had no trouble convincing them everytime they called I wasn't me. (I don't answer with my name even at home. And yes, my shrink thinks I'm functional.) Eventually, they went away. But I give the guy credit for persistence. A better adjusted person than me would have wound up with him in their living room.
Since then, I know a lot more about stalkers, who are targets most often,and the kinds of things they do. I have extra locks on my doors, and I DON'T give out much in the way of personal information on the Internet. I know just how easily some sicko can get that information, cause it happened to me once already.
Admitting I had a life partner was probably more information than I should have shared here.
