Have you ever "cyber stalked" someone on Cafemom?

I ask this question because of the anonymous posting question responses. Ladies said the reason why they post anonymously is to prevent from being stalked or getting hate mail. I don't believe I've been cyber stalked and I haven't received any crazy messages, so I don't think this really happens... Have you ever "cyber stalked" another mom? Why? Feel free to post anonymously...

  • No, but I've heard of it on Cafemom and warned a friend that I introduced to the site to post and answer posts wisely because there are loons everywhere and this site is no exception. I've been on the site going on a year now and never answered anon., nor have I been stalked.  I have gotten messages here and there from posters that I don't know about my response, but nothing rude, cruel, or disrespectful rather they were really nice, intelligently written and something I didn't mind getting.  :-)

  • I have been cyber stalked. This crazy girl on myspace took my pictures and made a fake page of me on more than one occassion. She added my friends and looked up old people.

  • I haven't really had a problem. In the 1 1/2 yrs I have been a member I have received one email from a mother who disagreed with a comment I made. I would not have had a problem with it but she was totally out of control and rude. So I blocked her. I haven't had any problems since.

  • I've had someone PM me a couple of times over one answer of mine that she didn't like. She wouldn't stop after I had asked her twice. I ended up blocking her. However, the positive PM's have far out weighed the negative.

  • Nope..but I have been sent rude messages for being the voice of dissent in certain topics. I also dared to post a journal about how cashcrate won't make you an overnight millionaire and my experience with it..I received a lot of rude messages so I had to cancel my old account and start a new one.

  • No and if they did they would be sorry. Just block them out and forget them. You can always put them on your block or spam list.

  • I've been cyberstalked. Nothing dangerous, really. I just had a mom that disagreed with me on a particular issue and she started "following me aorund" and everytime I replied to a post about that subject she started bad mouthing me and telling others that I was creepy and sick. But I contacted Cafemom after like the fourth time she did that and she was warned, I guess because she stopped.
    Now, this is really just someone being childish and stupid, nothing to worry about so I don't really post anonymously. Besides, I live in Mexico and I doubt someone will hate me that much to drop everything and come to a city with 50 million people just to get even with me. But I can understand that some women do take some things seriously and they like to protect their privacy.
