Stalking?

Unless I have the definition wrong, because I'm not up to date with all the terms on cm. If you argue with someone on cm in the answers area, I've seen people say "you are stalking me" I just thought they felt really strongly about the post or were just bickering. I guess to me stalking is what pedophiles do to kids on the internet, not arguing on a mom's site. If I am wrong about the definition of stalking, please tell me, I'm honestly curious, I want to know!

  • Haha! No you are right! Some moms here use it to describe other moms who go to their pages to get information on them then use it in the public forums. Some moms do chase each other around in different posts too. It's all quite silly and nothing as serious as your example. The actual offense of stalking is horrible...

  • There are moms that go from post to post stalking a certain member on purpose, constantly writing rude things and harassing.

  • When someone follows someone around and that person has said stop and they don't it's stalking. Ppl can cyber stalk too. If it goes to there page, and they follow them around harassing them in other post they're stalking. more then pedophiles stalk.

  • It is the childish, pathethic attempt to be the big bully on campus cm, so to speak. Most of it is contrived and fabricated in their minds and solicited on poor victims that are way and beyond their level of intelligence and upbringing.It is harmless.
